Airtel is reportedly offering Amazon Prime Subscription with an upgrade to its most basic broadband plans that give 40 mbps and 100 mbps speed. Airtel broadband plans which were priced at Rs 499 and Rs 799 have now been upgraded to Rs 589 and Rs 943 to include Amazon prime subscription.
Previously, Airtel's broadband plans starting from Rs 999 with more than 200 mbps speed offered OTT benefits including Zee5 and Amazon Prime subscription.
The development was first noted by Only Tech who cited select Airtel broadband users who spotted the addition on Airtel Thanks App.
The change has not been reflected on the website or Thanks app and is only visible to select users. As per the report, Amazon Prime benefit is only being offered on the revised plans every month, and it is not applicable for semi-annual or annual purchases. The revised bundled offers are likely to be visible first for regular Airtel broadband users.
The benefits that come with the most basic Airtel broadband plans are up to 40 mbps speed, unlimited internet and calls -- local and STD, subscription to Airtel XStream, Wynk Music, Shaw academy, and other benefits.
For the Rs 799 plan which has reportedly been upgraded to Rs 943 the speeds offered by Airtel are up to 100 mbps with unlimited calling and internet and the same additional benefits.
The development was possibly brought about to counter JioFiber Plans that start at Rs 399 and offer Amazon Prime subscription from its most basic plans for an additional Rs 99.
Airtel Thanks users in select regions also spotted a postpaid plan at Rs 399 with 40GB data with 3G or 4G speed along with unlimited calling and 100 SMS per day. The Rs 399 postpaid plan also offers a subscription of Airtel Xstream Premium included for one year in addition to subscriptions of Wynk Music and Shaw Academy. Customers will also get Free Hellotunes and Rs 150 cashback on FASTag transactions.
