Bharti Airtel on Friday said it has rolled out unlimited data offer for 5G users in 4G plans starting from ₹239 onward.
The move from the telecom operator comes to match its rival Jio, which is offering unlimited 5G data access during the beta trials of the network rollout.
“This introductory offer is in line with the philosophy of wanting our customers to be able to surf, stream, chat and enjoy multiple benefits at blazing speeds without having to worry about data limits. We hope our customers enjoy the power of world-class Airtel 5G Plus,” Bharti Airtel, Director Consumer Business, Shashwat Sharma said in a statement.
The Airtel 5G Plus service is available to customers in over 270 cities in the country. The company has plans to cover every town and key rural areas with 5G services by the end of March 2024.
Airtel has kept no fair usage policy (FUP) for 5G users like it has for 4G plans. Under FUP, telecom operators reduce data speed to 64 kilobit per second after the daily data limit of customers ends.
“Customers will now be able to experience ultrafast, reliable and secure 5G Plus services without having to worry about data exhaustion as the company removes the capping on data usage across all existing plans,” the statement said.
Airtel claims that its 5G Plus service has up to 30 times higher speed than 4G.
