Airtel Announces Free Roaming Across India

Posted February 28, 2017

Post the exhaustion of packs, the call rates will be once again back to usual - which Airtel has slashed to Rs 3 per minute as the starting rate and Rs 3 per MB data for data charges. Home data packs for customers will apply even while they roam across India, Airtel said.

Analysts also said some days ago that with the introduction of tariff plan from Reliance Jio, competitors will get some relief to maintain their existing customer and they will have to offer some data benefits to keep them. Previously, there used to be some booster packs for making the incoming roaming calls free for postpaid users and prepaid users, there should be a minimum balance to receive a call, and that's going to change now. These packs have received an overwhelming response from customers, shielding them from any bill shock and eliminating the need for a local country SIM.
