Indian mobile users are enjoying a cruise with one after another jaw-dropping and pocket-friendly offers coming their way out of the blues. As the latest addition, the Sunil Mittal-owned Bharti Airtel launches a special offer for its broadband subscribers. This offer enables a user to enjoy as much as 1,000 GB high-speed Internet data for a limited period.
According to market insiders, this marketing strategy is aimed to take on the rival telecom service provider Reliance Jio. It may be mentioned in this context, Reliance Jio, since its inception last September, has made the competition unbelievably tough for its rivals with its undeniable budget-friendly schemes and offers. The latest strategy undertaken by Bharti Airtel is popularly referred to the ‘Airtel Broadband Big Byte Offer’ in the market. It entitles users to enjoy 500 to 1,000 GB of bonus data in all post-paid rental plans, ranging from Rs. 599 to Rs. 1,999. This scheme will last till 31 March 2018.
However, this lucrative plan will only be available to those, who subscribed to Airtel DSL service on 12 June 2017 or after. NDTV quoted the telecom major in as many as words, “The Offer is valid only in India and redeemable only upon taking fresh subscriptions to Airtel’s select DSL broadband rental plans in accordance with the present terms and conditions”. Furthermore, the Airtel website further confirms the special offer cannot be combined with any other offer and neither it is available for any special, commercial or corporate plan.
To avail the bonus 1,000 GB offer, one may either log on to airtel.in/broadband page directly, or may choose the appropriate base plan after landing on the homepage. Users may also contact the Airtel helpdesk or may request a new broadband connection by providing contact number and address. However, the additional data benefit can only be enjoyed 7 days after a connection activation. One can consume the additional data only after exhausting the base quota. Moreover, keeping the customers’ benefits in the view, the Indian telecom major announces to credit the unused data to a user’s next month’s quota. This will continue either till 31 March 2018 or until the data plan is fully consumed, which one occurs faster.
