Pre-paid users of AirTel mobile phone can now enjoy a host of value-added services offered under post-paid service at no extra cost.
Those who buy the service for the first time have a good bargain with the start-up-kit costing below Rs 1,000 under the new `Convertible Plans' launched by Bharti Mobile Ltd. The service, which aims at creating a new segment, will also be looking at converting pre-paid customers into post-paid eventually.
`Convertible Plans', a product variant with the start-up kit costing only Rs 950, offers the power of post-paid and the control cost of pre-paid in one connection.
Four customised tariff plans on a 60-second pulse, a common feature enjoyed by the post-paid customers, sum up the `Convertible Plans'. In the `Leisure Lifestyle Club', incoming and outgoing calls are charged at Rs 2.50. The tariff plan for `Talk One' is devised for users getting very high incoming calls, which will be charged at Re 1 per 60 second call and outgoing at Rs 3. In AirTel Delight, the value rate plan is available on a monthly rental of Rs 1,119 where users enjoy free incoming calls while outgoing calls are charged only Rs 1.25 per call. AirTel Paradise with a similar rental of Rs 1,119, will be available with the benefit of the calls, both incoming and outgoing, being free to the users.
