Airtel announces post FUP speed of 128Kbps on unlimited prepaid packs to take on Jio, BSNL

Airtel users who now purchase internet data plan can continue to use the data even if their data limit is exhausted in the mid of the day.

Airtel has devised a new way to take on Jio and BSNL. After launching new plans that compete closely with Jio and other rival companies, Airtel has now announced that it will also offer the truly unlimited internet experience like Jio and BSNL by giving FUP speed of 128Kbps on Airtel unlimited packs.

In simple words, this means that Airtel users who now purchase internet data plan can continue to use the data even if their data limit is exhausted in the mid of the day. Earlier, if the data limit was reached, the subscriber either had to wait for the clock to strike 12 AM or buy a small recharge plan. With this new move, the subscriber can continue using the data at a speed of 128Kbps.

This new announcement adds Airtel to the list of BSNL and Jio who are already offering this service. While BSNL offers the same FUP speed of 128Kbps, Jio offers the speed of 64Kbps.

Airtel prepaid plans that are eligible for this offer are Rs 249, Rs 349, Rs 448, Rs 499 and Rs 509. Here is what Airtel offers with these plans. Please note that the FUP speed of 128Kbps is already live but not showing up on Airtel's website. The company may update the information in some time.

Airtel Rs 249 plan: Airtel offers unlimited voice calls, free-roaming outgoing and incoming, 100 local/national SMS a day and 2GB data per day for 28 days.
