Airtel has disappointed all it’s subscribers by coming up with pointless 3G tariffs. We all waited for too long to see 3G in action, we all waited for this day, we had thought this day would be very exiting one, but Airtel just threw a disappointing offer to all of us. I started to wonder, is this the day I waited from so long! This offering from Airtel just few days after MNP roll-out makes me think they want to downsize their customer base! I would suggest them to print MNP procedure on their 3G ads. I would probably send SMS short code for MNP than sending short code for 3G activation! Any way, let’s look at the tariff, for those who are still not aware of:
Airtel is also selling 3G datacards which are available in two variants, 3.6 mbps & 7.2 mbps. I don’t see a point in Airtel selling datacards, their tariffs are not enough to browse on smartphones only. There is no unlimited plan, maximum bandwidth which some one can get is 1.25GB for Rs.675, 10paisa per mb pay as you go after that, only until your bill reaches Rs.2000!! I have no idea which scientist they took help of to invent this plan!
Overall, personally I’m very disappointed with Airtel’s offerings. Instead of putting millions of rupees into re-branding and a crappy signature tune, they could have worked on improving their services & offering better 3G plans.
