Airtel’s Rs 169 unlimited plan is now still live after it was introduced nearly a year ago. In fact, the plan is also seemingly available in more telecom circles of Airtel now. USP of this plan is its offering of 1GB data per day.
Now, for the uninitiated, Airtel Rs 169 plan was one of the early unlimited plans at a time when Reliance Jio’s unlimited tariffs were dominating. The former tariff plan is valid for 28 days. It also offers free-unlimited calling without levying any IUC on subscribers. Here, Airtel, on its part, had stated that it would keep unlimited calls as it is without subscribers having to bother about IUC that is mandated by TRAI to be 6 paise per minute. These are the charges that one operator pays the other for voice calls.
As far as the 169 plan is concerned, it also offers 100 free text messages in a day, along with the free voice calls. This tariff scheme is seemingly custom-made for people preferring to consume increased multimedia content within their smartphones, and also the corporates. This plan also lets subscribers check out Airtel XStream and Wynk Music applications. With this plan still being active, you could check out this plan now.
In related news, the new trend in the Indian telecom sector seems to be the insurance cover. Airtel already has been offering insurance cover with some of its prepaid tariff plans, the latest amongst these include the Rs 249 plan. The Rs 249 scheme falls into the ambit of unlimited bonus recharges. Also, furthering its 4G focus, Airtel has announced the termination of 3G network services in Kerala. If you live in this region, you should be upgrading to 4G at the earliest.
