Airtel’s special offer was introduced in Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh last week. The offer has now been now extended across India and all brands of 4G handsets. Airtel 4G is currently available in 18 circles across India. In non 4G circles, 3G data will be available to customers under the offer.

With the entry of Reliance Jio, the war between telecos is getting intense. Airtel, Idea, Vodafone, Aircel etc have all announced price-cuts on their 4G data packs to compete with Jio’s 4G data tariffs. However, Reliance Jio is offering free 4G data till December 31, 2016 as a part of its ‘Welcome Offer’. Post the ‘welcome offer’, customers will be charged as per data tariffs put out by the company.

          Airtel khatam ho jaega kyun ki woh ek chor company hai jo bina bataye paisa kat leta hai. same recharge pe alag cell no per alag alag data milta hai.
