The Xstream app offers free access to selected channels like SonyLiv and ErosNow, while the Apollo 24|7 Circle provides health services.
The new Airtel plan for Rs 359 will provide 60GB of total data which is valid for a month, even if is for 31 days, then the total data offered will be 62GB. The internet speed will drop to 64 Kbps after the daily data limit is exhausted. This plan is a good option for those who want a ton of data and a longer validity but is considered expensive compared to other plans. An alternative to the Rs 359 plan is the Rs 549 plan, which comes with 2GB of daily data for 60 days and all the same benefits as the Rs 359 plan.
Bharti Airtel's increase in the validity of the Rs 359 plan offers more value to its users and aligns with the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India's request for telcos to introduce plans with 30 days or one-month validities.
