The unique feature of these ‘Family Plans’ is that all family members enjoys unlimited voice calling among them as CUG and they also can share pooled freebies in the form of voice calls, SMS and 2G data as tabulated below.
The big benefit of these Family plans is that family will receive a consolidated single bill for all the connections within the group.
