The much awaited Airtel Prepaid Mobile internet Vouchers are finally here. Few months back Aircel started to promote its Pocket internet with real easy plans of Rupee 14/- for a 3 day package and Rupee 98/- for a 30 day package. Taking the queue, Now Airtel has also introduced its Mobile Internet Vouchers to target the always-on-the-move generation, who want to manage their internet usage and gain better value for money.
The vouchers come in 2 options:
- Rs. 95 voucher offering 100 MB download which is valid for 30 days
- Rs. 26 voucher offering 15 MB download which is valid for 7 days
Airtel already had a ‘Zero Rental GPRS plan’ for which 30 paise is deducted for every 50kb of download from GPRS and a ‘Daily Download Internet plans’ of Rs. 10 for 3MB of data download, or Rs. 20 for 8MB of data download. These end up costing 16.67 paisa and 12.5 paisa per 50kb respectively.
The table below will let you know exactly how much you are spending per 50 KB download in each plan and the saving in each plan as compared to the Zero Rental GPRS Plan.
Brief Comparison of expenditure savings per plan
Zero Rental GPRS Plan Rs. 10 Daily Download Internet plans Rs. 20 Daily Download Internet plans Mobile Internet Vouchers – Rs. 26 Mobile Internet Vouchers – Rs. 95

This means using Nimbuzz has become much easier on the pocket. We must point out that although this launch by Airtel is on similar lines of the Aircel Pocket Internet, the cost is slightly higher. However, Airtel with its larger network coverage is justified in charging this premium.
With this move by Airtel, we are sure that other operators will soon come up with new and innovative mobile internet plans in the times to come.
This plan adds another means of connection, for those who were facing trouble connecting to Nimbuzz with Airtel Live, or were finding the Airtel Mobile Office Plan a bit expensive. The use of these cards will make Nimbuzz usage cheaper than current Airtel Rates on any data plan available.
