Airtel has launched a GPRS plan with a monthly rental of INR 98 with 2GB transfer limit. This is pretty cool as something which was available only to large corporate connections before is now available to everyone.
Here are the details:
|Plan type||GPRS/EDGE data plan|
|Plan rental||INR 98 per month|
|Data transfer limit||2GB per month|
Some key points:
As you can see, the plan is substantially cheaper than all the existing data plans available to postpaid or prepaid consumers. Also, 2GB is a pretty decent limit considering the best speed you can get is 20 kbps. even with casual usage (email, twitter and browsing) one will ideally use up around 500 MB per month. And since this is a mobile office plan, you can tether your laptop/netbook to your phone and access internet on the go on those family vacations.
To activate this pack, sms INTERNET to 121. In case you are already using any existing data plan, call up 121 and request for migration to this plan.
This might be Airtel’s move to stress test its network ahead of the 3G launch. This way they can find out issues and fix them up earlier, as no one would like their network to perform badly and fall prey under TRAI’s 3G guidelines, understandably.
