"Added data benefits on monthly packs will boost data consumption amongst existing users by offering more value and sachet Packs will drive affordability and help bring first time users online," Airtel said.

"These refreshed data packs will help drive consumption and boost the uptake of mobile Internet in the country.

"Given the deepening smartphone penetration and Airtel's roll-out of data networks across India, we believe these packs will also drive affordability and bring new users online," Bharti Airtel Director Operations (India and South Asia) Ajai Puri said in a statement.
