So, this service is specially launched for first-time mobile Internet users and to attract them toward Internet surfing on the Airtel network.
For your knowledge, let me tell you that it is actually a WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) service that is offering free mobile Internet to Airtel subscribers.
CEO of Bharti Airtel, Gopal Vittal stated “We know that a large number of our customers with Internet-enabled mobile phones do not use the Internet. This is because many of them don’t know how to use the Internet and are unaware of the cost”.
The company is giving free tutorial videos and trial packs with 10 day Internet access which will let users experience a host of its services including Facebook, YouTube, and online shopping.
