Airtel logo 2013 Latest HD transparent
This week, the last week of 2012, Airtel seems to be very ridiculous as they have slashed their 2G GPRS plans by half. This is gonna troll all the Airtel Subscribers who prefer mobile Internet. I know its a sad news for most of people, but as per my duty, I should tell you the actual summary of this WTF incident. Most plans have been chnaged including those motnhly and others internet packs. So have a lok over the plans, last updated in 26 Dec, 2012
You can also check out all plans manually using *121*8#

Daily Internet Plans

There is no change in this category, however here is the list of all plans available. I am not gonna describe you all in detail, you can see a detailed overview for more information in my last post.

Monthly Internet Plans

Airtel has changed this one, a lot which you are gonna hate a lot. Psst, keep reading this post, in the end I have gave some worthy suggestions on choosing a good plan which is still useful :-)
Now there is not unlimited Internet plan at all which was announced recently; the Rs 149 plan. Instead they have slashed the existing Rs 98 plan, which was 2000 MB in June, 1000 MB in July and now a mere 600 MB -_-
Also its not monthly at all, as the Rs 908 one is of 21 days and the 125 for 1000 MB is of 28 days. Looks like they love February.

As people think different, so they need plans that actually suit them. In this case the "Others"  category pleased them with the Rs 18 plan and the Rs 35 plan, but this category has also been affected.

Misc Plans

As in the last week, Airtel introduced two new plans, namely the Night internet pack and the Facebook Internet pack, which seemed to please its users. The night internet plans is the best for Airtel users in terms of Data usage and price. Its 400 MB for only Rs 9. And the bad news is that they have changed the newly introduced Facebook plan a little. The change is that its now a Auto Renewal plan lasting for 7 days. This means, if you activate Facebook plan today, it will activate automatically day by day for 7 days, so it costs you 280 MB for 21 Rs and for 7 days. if you smart enough, you can also deactivate in the last minute to escape from the *121*8# menu.

What to choose

Now its time to remove the facepalm and choose what's good. So here are my recommendations:
  • Rs 10 -  100 MB for 1 Day
  • Rs 60 -  1000 MB for 14 Days
  • Rs 9 - 400 MB for one night
To receive settings for your phone, Send MO to 54321 and the Airtel service person will shortly send you settings for your phone. Apply these settings and you can start using Internet on your phone.
