Basically Airtel is offering consolidated five postpaid plans of monthly rentals of Rs 199, Rs 299, Rs 399, Rs 599 and Rs 999 and earlier to this innovative step, Airtel was having so many postpaid plans that were offering different freebies.

The new myPlan allows the postpaid Airtel_myplan3customers to select combination of pre-decided six freebies options myPacks, freebies are in the form of units of 135MB of 3G data, 250MB of 2G data, 5 minutes of ISD calling to US/UK/Canada, 100 minutes of local calls, 200 local/national SMS or 40 minutes outgoing free during roaming.

myPlan also offer flexibility to top up with special booster plans out of bouquet of 10 myBooster options as shown in below screenshotAirtel_myplan4

Suppose you just want a post plan of 1GB of 3G data then you have to go for myPlan of monthly rental of Rs 299 and you have to select myPack of 135MB of 3G data eight times, totaling 1080MB of 3G data, no myBooster top up is required.

For your 1GB of 3G data usage, if you select myPlan of monthly rental of Rs 199 with myPack of 135MB two times, then you get total 270MB data only but this much of data may not be sufficient for you so now you have to top up your plan with myBooster of 1GB that also cost additional of Rs 250 per month.

Hence monthly myPlan of rental plan Rs 199 with total 1270MB data cost you Rs 449 per month while myPlan of monthly rental Rs 299 allows you 1080MB of 3G data usage.

In case your usage goes over your free quota (myPacks), then Airtel will charge all local calls at the rate of 50p/min and all STD calls at the rate of 60p/min for the extra usage in all the five myPlans. Airtel has not mentioned any extra charges for additional usage of 3G data.

If you go for plain 3G postpaid plan then it comes with monthly rental of Rs 250 and after exhausting free data, the additional data are charged 3p/10Kb.

  1. I am using a Airtel Number since a long time and the service is pretty good. I never got any problem with it’s network. The network base is quite strong than other mobile operators but the tariff of call is a little bit higher than other mobile operators. this is the only draw back of Airtel other than that there is no problem with it.

    We can’t have a 2g pack and a 3g pack in the same billing cycle. We either need to take all 2g packs or all 3g packs.

      Nowadays, the 3G is very slow in Airtel. Complained to customer care many times.
      They simply say delete temp/cache or create a different profile/APN or put to roaming setting. No use at all!

      This is not even 2G at 3G costs! Sometimes pages don’t even load.

      Really disappointed.
