After BSNL, Vodafone, and Jio, Airtel today announced that it will now offer free incoming calls in national roaming for its customers from April 1st. So, customers can now pickup up the incoming call for free with subscribing or opting any special/roaming packs.
Apart from national roaming, Airtel had previously affordable roaming packs for all major countries across the world. The has a lot benefits like free incoming calls/SMS calling minutes and text both to India and the local country with some added data. All these packs offer a validity of 1 day, 10 days, and 30 days.
Gopal Vittal, MD & CEO (India & South Asia), Bharti Airtel said;
This marks the death of national roaming and the whole country will now be like a local network for our customers, who will not have to think twice before making or receiving calls or using data while traveling outside their home base. Airtel has again set the benchmark in delivering best in class value backed by a great network experience.
Airtel International Roaming!
The company is implementing an automatic adjustment for international roaming customers so that they can avoid steep billing for not using roaming charges. This adjustment will protect the bill shocks and will charge as the daily pack for the particular country (which is awesome!).
This also means that, if a customer reaches the price of a day pack for the specified country, the customer will be automatically moved to that pack. This will, of course, allow the customers to use their network abroad without fearing the bill shocks.
Sunil Bharti Mittal, Chairman, Bharti Airtel said;
At Airtel, we are changing the international roaming paradigm, which will allow our customers to take their number to every corner of the world. As an industry, operators across the world must collaborate to remove the cost barrier to roaming and offer customers the convenience of staying connected without the fear of exorbitant bill charges.
