Late last month, Indian telecom operator Bharti Airtel – often referred to as Airtel – announced its Airtel VoLTE Beta program as a part of which it offers 30 GB of free data to the participants. Now, the telco has announced that it will offer 30 GB of free data to those customers who upgrade to 4G smartphones.
Yes, you read that right. Airtel is offering 30 GB of free data to its customers who upgrade from 2G/3G phone to a 4G smartphone. This offer is available for both prepaid as well as postpaid customers. Airtel prepaid customers are offered 1 GB data per day for 30 days which translates to a total of 30 GB data, and, Airtel postpaid customers are offered 30 GB of data for their first billing cycle. However, postpaid customers also get an added benefit of the data roll-over facility which means if they aren’t able to use the 30 GB data in their first billing cycle, it will be carried forward to the next cycle for them to use.
That said, to get this 30 GB of free data, you will first have to switch from 2G/3G phone to a 4G phone. After that, click here to see if you are eligible for this offer.
