Airtel has announced it is extending the #AirtelThanks benefits to the V-Fiber broadband customers across the country. V-Fiber is high-speed broadband service that works on the principle of vectorisation to reduce buffer speeds. The telco has been offering up to 300Mbps data speeds for the V-Fiber customers but rivals have been undercutting the service with their broadband plans that provide up to 1Gbps speed at lower prices. Airtel is now betting on its #AirtelThanks initiative to drive more growth in the broadband sector.
Under #AirtelThanks initiative, the V-Fiber customers with a Rs 1,099 or higher will be eligible to receive “exclusive” benefits and “superior service experience”. The benefits include three months of free Netflix membership, one year of Amazon Prime membership, access to ZEE5 and Airtel TV Premium content. In addition, Airtel is claiming the customers can get “exclusive benefits” from brands based on their plan.Read more ↓
