The Indian telecom sector is in for a cut-throat fight. After BSNL announced unlimited calls from its landline phones from 9 pm to 7 am from May 1, Bharti Airtel has picked up the gauntlet and announced two voice calling packs for its broadband customers.
The unlimited free local calls pack costs Rs 49 per month, and the unlimited free STD + local calls pack costs Rs 99 per month. This service is only launched for broadband customers, and for non-commercial usage.
To activate the voice packs from your Airtel landline, customers have to send an SMS to 53636 for the Rs 49 pack or to 53636 for the Rs 99 pack to 53636 from their registered number. New customers can book a new broadband connection by sending an an SMS to 53636.
