    Airtel 3G Data Tariff Plans

    Airtel 3G tariffs plans are divided into two categories : 1) Time-based. 2) Flexi-shield plans.

    Flexi-shield Plan:

    The monthly rental charge is Rs. 650 which provides 1.25 GB of free data usage. Airtel will start charge Rs. 10 Paise/MB if a user will cross the free data usage limit. The same will be applied till the bill reaches Rs. 2,000 or 14 GB data usage which ever happens first. Due to FUP (Fair Usage Policy) by Airtel, The speed will be reduced to 128 kbps after the 14 GB data usage.

    Time-based Plans:

    Occasional users

    Rs. 9 for 10 MB, validity 1 day
    Rs. 45 for 40 MB Validity 3 days
    Rs. 60 for 65 MB, validity 3 days

    Medium Users
    Rs. 103 for 100 MB, validity 30 days
    Rs. 200 for 250 MB, validity 30 days
    Rs. 450 for 600 MB, validity 30 days
    Rs. 750 for 2 GB, validity 30 days

    I feel the above tariff plans are good. But, I am always against the Fair Usage Policy

    How to Activate Airtel 3G on your Mobile?

    Airtel users can Activate Airtel 3G service on their mobile phone by just sending an SMS ’3G‘ to 121. If you already have a 2G Data plan running it will be de-activated and “Pay As You Go” 3G Data Plan will be activated which will charge all data access for 30 paise / 20 KB or Rs. 15 / MB.

    In the Press conference Mr. Sanjay Kapoor, CEO – bharti airtel Ltd (India & South Asia) said,

    “It is indeed the start of a new era when 3G services in India roll out on airtel’s network. World over ‘Data traffic’ on the back of high speed internet and use of social networking has already exceeded the ‘Voice traffic’. India is ushering in the domain – though later than most of the world – but no doubt we will catch up at a much faster speed. 3G is much more than a technology migration – it is a transformational shift – and airtel’s focus would be to bring to its customers an enriched user experience on the back of a world class delivery network. I welcome all 745 million mobile customers of the country to be a part of this journey with airtel!”
