Just after announcing unlimited free night calling facility by BSNL for its landline and Broadband combo plan subscribers, Airtel has ignited the fight and launched two packs priced at Rs 49 and Rs 99 for making unlimited voice calling for their Broadband customers.
The Rs 49 pack allows the fixed as well as mobile broadband customers to make unlimited local calls to any network. The mobile customer can activate this pack by sending SMS in the format UNL49 to 53636.
The Rs 99 pack allows the fixed as well as mobile broadband customers to make unlimited local and STD calls to any network anywhere in the country. The mobile customer can activate this pack by sending SMS in the format UNL99 to 53636.
The difference between two operators is that BSNL will offer unlimited free night calling from 9PM to 7AM starting 1 May 2015 while Airtel is allowing making unlimited calls anytime.
But the Airtel is invoking Fair Usage Policy (FUP) and restricing the “Unlimited calls” to 5000 minutes per month only. Another catch is that Airtel has also restricted the number of landline or mobile number to 150 on which their broadband customers can make unlimited calls. The terms and condition also says that Airtel can cancel this plan at any time automatically.
