Airtel offers unlimited 3G data sharing plan for prepaid and postpaid connections

To begin the new year, Bharti Airtel has launched a new unlimited 3G plan for prepaid and postpaid customers called the ‘data share plan’ that allows users to share data among two of their friends or family members or among three of their own devices.

To activate the plan, airtel users need to SMS ‘DATA SHARE ADD Mobile Number’ to 121. Users can also add mobile numbers of their friends and family by visiting  airtel’s website. It charges Rs 1,000 per month for a 5GB of 3G data. Post 5GB of data usage, the connection speed drops to 80Kbps, which technically makes the plan unlimited. It is advised to talk to Airtel customer care before subscribing to the new data share plan as it might affect the user’s current 3G data plan.

This data plan can be shared only with customers on Airtel network within the same circle, which limits the usability of the plan. Apart from sharing the connection with 2 friends and family member, the plan also allows users to opt to share the connection with up to three of their own internet enabled devices.
