In an industry first Airtel would now be allowing its postpaid users on corporate plans to recharge their numbers with the already existing data plans for satisfying their hunger for more high-speed data.


This will solve the problem of lakhs of people working in the corporate world. Generally, the corporate plans come with limited high-speed data. Some companies also offer plans without any data to their employees.

Such plans leave the employees in trouble since they have to use two phones. One for their corporate number and the other for using data services. Most of the people use corporate plans for making calls and a separate SIM card for accessing the internet on their mobiles.

This might not look like a big issue to you until you actually imagine yourself managing 2 separate phones or 2 mobile numbers simultaneously.

Airtel has acknowledged this problem and now allows its subscribers to recharge existing postpaid number on a corporate plan with a prepaid data pack. The subscriber can get this recharge done either online or via any shop selling recharge packs.

The users would have to pay for the packs while recharging their number. This means that the charges for the extra data or the data pack won’t show up in their monthly postpaid bill and their employers won’t mind it.

“Flexibility is the core of our postpaid proposition, with Airtel myPlan offering infinite choices to the customers to create their own mobile plans. Now with ‘Prepaid on Postpaid’, we are offering enhanced flexibility to our corporate customers while simplifying their data experience. We have received extremely positive response to this product,” said Srinivasan Gopalan, Director of Consumer Business at Bharti Airtel.

The subscribers can recharge their postpaid number with any prepaid data pack whenever they like thus giving them true flexibility.
