AirTel has taken an initiative to resolve these problem, and launched exciting 3G Mobile Data-Plans which are almost 70% less than the previous charges. As per the Airtel spokesperson statement, “Volume-based browsing rate on 3G has been slashed from 10 paise per 10KB to 3 paise per 10KB. This new cost will be applicable for 3G non-pack users with effect from May 17, 2012” and new volume based browsing rates are 3p/10Kb for 3G non-pack users. These services are provided to both Prepaid and Postpaid customers.
