Airtel's free data offer is only valid on 4G handsets.
In a move to garner more users to its network, Bharti Airtel is offering extra 30 GBs of 4G data to its postpaid users. This "Monsoon Surprise" offer started on July 1 and is an extension of an earlier offer by Airtel, called "Data Surprise". The postpaid users will get additional 10GB of free data for three months. The offer is valid on its Rs 499, Rs 649 and Rs 799 postpaid plans. "In case, the customer downgrades the plan, the offer will be removed automatically and customer will not be able to take the offer again," Airtel stated on its website. The offer can be activated by claiming it on the Myairtel app, a company spokesperson confirmed.
"The company is sending another shower of data for three more billing cycles, as part of Monsoon Surprise," Bharti Airtel CEO Gopal Vittal said in an email to subscribers. Users opting for this plan in July can get the additional data benefit of 10GB per month till September.
