The Indian telecom war is getting fiercer by the day. The war, which started last year after newbie Jio entered the Indian market, is seeing Indian telecom biggies fighting it out to secure the largest market share by providing its customers with lucrative data and calling offers. And now, Airtel, which had previously already announced the removal of all roaming charges for incoming and outgoing calls as well as SMSes and data usage within India, is back with another ‘Free Internet’ offer which is giving its postpaid customers a chance to pocket 30GB of free data for three months (10GB per month).

The offer, which is giving people an opportunity to access 10 GB per month absolutely free of cost, can be availed via Airtel's MyAirtel app.

How to Avail the Offer?



1) Go to MyAirtel App. If not downloaded, you can easily download the app from Google Play Store or Apple App Store absolutely free of cost.

2) Once you have opened the app, you will see a banner flashing on its home page with the title ‘Enjoy India’s fastest network with free Internet. Claim now’.

3) Once you have spotted the banner, click on the ‘Claim Now’ tab.

Make sure that you avail the offer before March 31, which is the deadline fixed by Airtel.

Prior to this free 30 GB offer, Airtel had doubled the monthly data for its ‘my Infinity’ plan users. So, if you had originally subscribed to Airtel’s 10GB data plan, which anyway had doubled over the past few months to 20GB, your monthly data offering has now effectively shot up to 30GB per month. Experts claim that the decision was made so as to provide the postpaid users with something lucrative and make them stay with the telecom operator and not make a switch to others.

Ever since Jio made an entry into the telecom world, rivals Airtel, Vodafone and Idea have been constantly coming out with new, lucrative data tariffs so as to keep the competition at bay. Unfortunately, Jio's data tariffs still remain undefeated in both postpaid and prepaid categories.

Currently, under its Jio Prime programme, Reliance Jio is offering its customers a Rs 303 plan which gives them unlimited data, while 28GB is available at 4G speeds. The FUP is 1GB per day. The plan is currently the cheapest in the Indian market right now.

Other similar data plans from Jio's rivals includes Vodafone’s Rs 1,299 plan that is offering its users 3000 local minutes + STD calling and around 8GB of data. Though, Idea doesn’t have 4G data plans currently, it did announce free incoming calls on domestic roaming and introduced a couple of interesting international roaming value packs.

One thing is for sure, as of now, there's no one in the Indian telecom sector which can match Jio when it comes to data tariffs. Also, from the looks of it, the situation is going to remain like this for quite sometime as Jio, which already has more than 100 million customers in its kitty, has announced that it will keep optimising its data tariffs to offer 20% more value to its customers compared to rivals.
