Bharti Airtel has launched a new prepaid plan for its users in India. The newly launched Rs 279 prepaid plan is now available on the company’s website and mobile app. The plan offers longer validity at a lower cost but does not give other kinds of benefits. The company previously launched a Rs 395 plan that offers 70 days of validity. These plans offer longer validity but do not offer much data. Here are all the details you need to know about the Rs 279 prepaid plan. 

Airtel Rs 279 prepaid plan details

Bharti Airtel's Rs 279 plan includes 2GB of data, unlimited voice calling, and 600 SMS in total for 45 days. The average daily cost for this plan is Rs 6.2, which is quite affordable. However, if you exceed the 2GB data limit, you will need to purchase additional data vouchers from Airtel, starting at Rs 19 for 1 day. The plan also provides Airtel Thanks benefits such as Apollo 24|7 Circle, free Hello tunes, and Wynk Music. 

This plan is ideal for individuals who don't require a lot of data but want to keep their SIM active at a low cost. Additionally, the unlimited voice calling feature makes it even more valuable.

Meanwhile, a joint venture between Reliance Industries' Jio Platforms and Luxembourg-based SES has received approval from the Indian space regulator to operate satellites in India. The venture, named Orbit Connect India, aims to provide gigabit fiber internet and has obtained three approvals to offer satellite-based high-speed internet access. This comes at a time when companies like Amazon and Elon Musk's Starlink are also vying for approval to launch satellite communication services in India. 

The authorizations were granted in April and June by the Indian National Space Promotion and Authorisation Centre (IN-SPACe). These now allow Orbit Connect to operate satellites above India. However, the company still needs further approvals from the country's Department of Telecommunications before it can begin operations.
