Airtel makes easier for customers to upgrade to 4G smartphone

The assurance was given before Justice Yogesh Khanna, who was hearing a plea moved by Reliance Jio, a new entrant to telecom sector, alleging that the commercials of Airtel were "deceptive and misleading". For postpaid, 30GB data (with data rollover) will be added to the bill cycle.

"While 4G smartphones are fast becoming the norm, for millions of customers with feature phones/3G devices the upgrade to a 4G smartphone is a big decision and a long term investment", said Vani Venkatesh, CMO, Bharti Airtel.

Telecom major Airtel today assured the Delhi High Court that its latest advertisements, offering "live and free access" to the IPL coverage, would include a bold disclaimer that only subscription to video streaming platform Hotstar would be free and data charges according to the subscribers plan would apply.

Now, Airtel is making its "Mera Pehla Smartphone" initiative further appealing by giving away 30GB free data just by switching to a 4G smartphone. To become eligible for the offer, a user will have to upgrade to 4G smartphone from a 2G/3G mobile and would need to remain on the same Airtel network. Airtel 4G VoLTE beta testers get 30GB free data in a phased manner extending to eight weeks in total. This is one of the largest customer rewarding programs & with this initiative, our customers shall get an opportunity to experience the online world at 4G speeds and fully unlock the potential of their smartphones. Once this is done, you will get your free 30 GB of data within 24 hours.

In a recent past, Airtel has rolled out a new cashback program, under which it's offering Rs 2,000 cash back on select 4G handsets from brands such as Nokia and this offer was introduced to go against Reliance JioFootball cashback offer. The Rs 649 Airtel postpaid plan was recently reintroduced with more data benefits. With this plan, users also get free local and national voice calls, unlimited incoming and outgoing calls on roaming and 100 SMSs free per day.
