Airtel tweaks monsoon offer, now 60 GB free for 6 months

18 September 2017

With Airtel's monsoon offer nearing its end, the country's largest telecom operator is now offering 60 GB data for free to postpaid users on downloading the Airtel TV app. The free data would be over a period of 6 months where users will get 10 GB data each month.

Earlier Bharti Airtel was offering 30 GB free data (10 GB data every month for 3 months). In effect it has not increased the data limit while tweaking the scheme, but has extended the validity period.

The offers aims to increase the number of Airtel TV app installations. Users are required to download and install Airtel TV app on their phones, after which users will receive the free data credit within 24 hours.

The offer is valid only for Airtel postpaid customers and MyAirtel app users. Those who do not have the MyAirtel app can download it from the Google Play Store.

The new offer is similar to the Airtel Monsoon offer, which the company offered three months ago. However, that offer was valid only for three months, whereas the new offer from Airtel is valid for six months. Airtel will automatically add 10GB free data every month to user's postpaid account.

Airtel recently announced its Postpaid Promise scheme, under which the operator allows postpaid subscribers to carry forward a month's unused data to next month. The company claims the program has received a great response from the users. An Airtel postpaid customer can store up to 200GB data in his/her account.

The Airtel's new plan is free, since it's a promotional plan. Users only needs to download the Airtel TV app and the company will  automatically credit 10GB free data every month to the postpaid account.
