You find an interesting mobile plan, but when try to recharge, it won’t work on your mobile connection. It’s mainly because telcos tend to limit certain plans to a certain set of subscribers. Well, from now onwards this won’t be the case if you are with India’s largest telecom operator Airtel. The telco has announced ‘Airtel Prepaid Promise’ for its prepaid mobile subscribers pan-India.
Airtel Prepaid Promise scheme is the telcos way to offer better customer experience to its prepaid subscriber base. Other than offering user specific plans, the telco will offer open market mobile plans. Which means, every user in a particular telecom circle can recharge for an open market mobile plan and everyone will get the same voice and data benefits.
