Airtel offers Smart Bytes add-on plans for broadband subscribers, Rs 99 plan offers 5GB extension

The broadband sector is seeing a lot of activity lately as the Jio's expected launch date for its GigaFiber broadband service is drawing close. The major players are now trying their best appeal to subscribers with either reduced prices or extra benefits with the plans. Airtel is among them and in a bid to make it easy for those subscribers who have higher data consumption, it has launched its Smart Bytes add-on plans.

Similar to its prepaid telecom plans, Airtel has now introduced add-on plans for those subscribers who need more data than the allotted one in their plans. The Smart Bytes add-on plans offer up to 200GB additional data from prices as low as Rs 99. These plans could be great for those who have higher than data consumption in a particular period and need additional quota until the validity expires.

These Smart Bytes plans start from Rs 99 and at this price, subscribers will get an additional 5GB data for the rest of the validity period remaining. If you want more data, you can get an extra 15GB data for Rs 199. Other packs include 25GB data for Rs 299, 50GB additional data for Rs 499, 90GB additional data for Rs 799 and 200GB extra data for Rs 1,499.

Do note that these are not standalone subscriptions and will only add extra data within the subscription cycle.

The Smart Bytes will be beneficial for subscribers of the base Rs 799 plan that offers limited data allotment compared to the other plans.

With these plans, Airtel is making it easy for its subscriber to use the V Fiber broadband. A few days ago, Airtel also introduced its #AirtelThanks benefits to its V Fiber broadband service. With the #AirtelThanks benefits, subscribers are entitled to enjoy free subscription to Netflix for three months. Along with that, an annual subscription to Amazon Prime as well as Airtel TV Premium subscription. The offer is usually applicable on plans starting from Rs 1,099 and above. Airtel offers three plans above Rs 1,099 with a monthly subscription.

The base plan costs Rs 1,099 and offers speeds up to 100Mbps. Subscribers get up to 300GB data with data rollover limit to 500GB, which needs to be consumed within 6 months. Plus, subscribers get unlimited calls via a landline.
