When Airtel had introduced its Airtel Black plans back in July last year, the service included four fixed plans worth Rs 998, Rs 1,349, Rs 1,598 and Rs 2,099. At the time, all of these Airtel Black plans came with postpaid connections. Now, the telecom giant has added a new fixed plan to the mix.
Airtel has introduced a new Airtel Black plan worth Rs 1,099. This new plan offers unlimited Airtel Fiber and Airtel Landline connections with a speed of up to 200Mbps. In addition to this, this plan offers a DTH connection with connection to TV channels worth Rs 350. Additionally, this plan offers a one-year subscription to Amazon Prime and a one-year subscription to the Airtel Xstreme app.
It is worth noting that, all other plans listed under the Airtel Black portfolio come with postpaid SIM cards. However, the newly announced Rs 1,099 plan makes no mention of the accompanying SIM card. According to a report by Telecom Talk, the newly introduced Rs 1,099 Airtel Black plan comes with a prepaid connection. However, it is possible that with its newly introduced fixed Airtel Black plan, the company will let users keep using their Airtel connections. Or in other words, it is possible that this Airtel Black plan offers a mix of DTH, Landline and Airtel Fiber only.
UPDATE: Airtel has clarified that its Rs 1,099 plan also works with postpaid connections. The only difference is that it doesn't offer an additional SIM card. This means that users will have to use their existing postpaid numbers or a new postpaid number to subscribe to this plan.

Separately, Bharti Airtel recently launched prepaid plans worth Rs 296 and Rs 319. These plans come with a 30-day validity. Both these plans offer unlimited voice calls, 100 SMS messages per day, and other added benefits including a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime Video Mobile Edition, three months of Apollo 24x7 Circle, and a Rs 100 cashback on FASTag, and free access to Wynk Music. While the Rs 296 plan offers a total of 25GB data, the Rs 319 plan offers 2GB of data per day, which totals to 60GB of data in a month.
