- Airtel XStream Fiber is now offering unlimited data with broadband plans starting at Rs 499.

Airtel has launched new XStream Fiber bundles to give unlimited internet (3333GB) on all broadband plans. The plans are live on Airtel website as well as the Airtel Thanks app and start at Rs 499. The development was first noted by Only Tech. Airtel's move came after last week Jio announced its revamped broadband plans. Let's have a look at these plans in detail.
Unlimited broadband plan at Rs 499: This broadband plan by Airtel XStream Fiber offers unlimited internet and calling and comes with a high speed up to 40 Mbps.
Premium broadband plan at Rs 799: Airtel XStream premium broadband plan offers unlimited internet and calls and comes with a high speed of 100 Mbps.
Entertainment broadband plan at Rs 999: Airtel XStream entertainment broadband plan offers unlimited internet and calls with a high speed up to 200 Mbps.
Ultra broadband plan at Rs 1499: Airtel XStream ultra broadband plan offers unlimited internet with speed up to 300 Mbps and unlimited local and STD calls.
VIP broadband plan at Rs 3999: Airtel XStream VIP broadband plan offers unlimited internet with speed up to 1 Gbps and unlimited local and STD calls.
Although, there is no change in the rates, the new umlimited data benefits will draw more customers to opt for Airtel broadban plans. Airtel XStream Fiber will have an FUP limit of 3333GB for all plans after which the speed will be reduced to 1,024Kbps.
As per Airtel, all the plans will include Airtel Xstream 4k TV Box along with 10,000+ movies, shows and original series from 7 OTT apps and 5 Studios. The last three plans in the list, that is, entertainment, ultra and VIP give access to Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ Hotstar and Zee5 services while all plans give access to Airtel XStream OTT services.
Additionally, Airtel has announced the Xstream Bundle offering at a security deposit of Rs 1500 under which it gives Airtel Xstream Android 4K TV Box.
Airtel delisted its Rs 299 unlimited data add-on plan, earlier this week that provided unlimited data for plans that had a data limit earlier. It thus got quite expensive for Airtel users as they had to pay an additional Rs 299 when the most basic broadband plan came for Rs 799 before the plans were revamped. All plans will be available from September 7,2020 in all circles of India.
Currently, Airtel is upgrading its existing customers to new plans. While Airtel has not given clarity on how existing customers can switch to other broadband plans, Jio provides a free trial of one month for its newly launched broadband plans which is refundable.
