New Delhi: Bharti Airtel’s mobile internet packs, both 2G and 3G, sold online will cost more for pre-paid customers across the country. The company has withdrawn discounts that it was offering for online purchase of mobile data packs, bringing the prices at par with internet packs sold offline through retailers. “There is a slight change in few of our online prepaid data packs owing to the discontinuation of discounted offers on these,” an Airtel spokesperson told a national news agency. Also, sources said that Airtel has raised prices of 10 data packs.

For instance, earlier, the company used to offer 2 GB of 2G data for Rs 199 with a validity of 30 days if the recharge was done online. It has now been changed to 1.25 GB of data with 28 days validity. In case of 3G, the company is now offering 1 GB of 3G data with 28 days validity for Rs 255 against charge of Rs 249 for the same data usage with 30 days validity.
