Leading telecom operator Bharti Airtel has launched a plan that will allow corporate customers use pre-paid data on their respective post-paid plans.

The scheme will primarily benefit those customers who are unable to access mobile internet on their corporate connections because their company policy does not allow subscribing those plans having data packs.

As part of the plan, any customer on a corporate plan can do a simple pre-paid data recharge on his/her number and start using data and it will not be part of the post-paid bill. The standard prepaid data recharges start from Rs 99.

Airtel said mobile internet is becoming the norm for millions of mobile customers. However, some customers on corporate plans are unable to access mobile internet on their connections, as their (respective) company policy does not allow it or limits the use of mobile data under their plans.

This, in several cases, forces customers to use two SIMs or even two mobile devices for their individual data needs.
