Bharti Airtel has announced a new data plan that allows the subscriber to share one plan with two more devices. With Airtel's Data Share Plan, a subscriber can share 3G data up to 5GB with a recharge of Rs. 1,000, which is valid for 30 days. The plan can be shared with other Airtel numbers (prepaid and postpaid) only, but they have to be in the same circle.
To use the new Airtel data share plan, subscribers can go to www.airtel.in/datashare or SMS “DATA SHARE ADD mobile number” to add phone numbers with which they want to share the data. Airtel has put up an infographic explaining how its Data Share Plan works, and you can check it out below:
Airtel's new data share plan is quite similar to Reliance's recent 'All Share Postpaid Plan'. RCom's plan, available for all GSM and CDMA postpaid customers, allowed users to share usages with three connections at a single rental of Rs. 1,497.
The All Share Postpaid Plan - only for 3 members or 3 connections - wherein the members can share 3,000 mins of local / STD voice calls, 3,000 local / national SMS along with 3GB of 3G data per month and free calling amongst the family or group members on this plan. Along with this, all the members would also get the benefit of unlimited free local calls within the group. Find out more about the RCom's plan here.
