What does ‘unlimited’ or ‘infinite Internet’ mean for postpaid users? And who offers it? Let’s find out.
Unlimited or Infinite Internet is a term coined for postpaid or broadband Internet usage. As the name suggests, it offers an unlimited amount of Internet data for use every month. This is an excellent benefit to have, as opposed to the fixed amount of data that other plans have.
- However, you might be mistaken in believing that you get an unlimited amount of GBs under the Infinite Internet 4G plan. For instance, Airtel postpaid offers the Infinite Internet postpaid plan. Under their postpaid plans, data offered ranges from 40 GB to 120 GB per month.
- Now suppose that your monthly data usage in the region of about 25 GB, counting all the daily tasks you do – surfing, video streaming, calling, audio, etc. If your maximum monthly use is capped at 25 GB despite all your effort at using more data, then any data above 25 GB will be considered a bonus for you. So, if you were to take the Airtel Rs 399 4G plan which offers 40 GB data per month, in effect, you get unlimited data – you are not likely to cap the 40 GB data limit, come what may.
- Infinite Internet gives you the freedom to surf and use your postpaid data plan endlessly, without worrying about ‘running out’ of data.
- However, you must first determine your current usage. If you are a heavy user who watches movies and videos every day, surfs social media endlessly and chats all the time, then you will need a higher data quota than others. But if your usage is limited to making a few calls and reading a few things online, then less data is fine. Take into account your data needs before you select an Infinite Internet plan.
Apart from using the plan on your phone, the unlimited Internet 4G plan comes in handy if you travel with your laptop often. You can use your phone as a mobile hotspot in areas where there is no Wi-Fi access or connectivity. Since you have a lot of data at your disposal, you don’t need to worry about how much data your laptop is consuming.
We recommend going with Airtel postpaid if unlimited Internet is your need.
