After increasing data tariffs for pre-paid customers in Delhi,  Airtel and Idea Cellular have now hiked charges for their post-paid users by around 20 percent in various circles including the national capital.

Post-paid customers of the two operators in the above-mentioned circles will now have to pay Rs 300 for 1GB 3G data, against Rs 250 earlier for the same amount of data usage.

According to the information available on the website of Airtel, it is clear that the data tariff has been escalated in regions like Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi, Punjab, Rajasthan and Maharashtra. Idea has hiked charges in Delhi, UP West and Punjab.

A few months back, Vodafone, along with the above mentioned cellular companies, had raised pre-paid tariffs for 2G and 3G services in Delhi by upto 47%.

However, there has been no hike in data charges by Vodafone in the post-paid category in Delhi or any other area.

Airtel has launched Wi-Fi calling after testing it for months, but for now it will work only on Airtel Xstream Fiber and on select smartphones.

The Wi-Fi calling is being rolled out for prepaid and postpaid subscribers across the country, according to Airtel here on Tuesday. “It is currently available in Delhi NCR and will be gradually rolled out across India,” it said.

The Wi-Fi calling will let Airtel users make use of the Wi-Fi network in their homes to make calls using VoIP, instead of relying on cellular connectivity. There will be no extra charge for calls made over Airtel Wi-Fi calling and the application consumes minimal data.

Reliance Jio is also working on a similar feature and is expected to launch it soon.
