The plan begins from Rs. 899 offering two postpaid connections with 75GB + 10GB mobile data along with DTH channels worth Rs. 413, a free HD set-top-box and Airtel Thanks that offers services like Zee5, Xstream, and more. Next is Rs. 1,349 plan offering similar features with extra mobile data.

The One Airtel Plan also offers Rs. 1,399 plan with two postpaid offers and 500GB high-speed broadband data, but lacks DTH benefits. Lastly, Rs. 1,899 plan for One Airtel offers all four services of postpaid plans, 500GB of broadband data, DTH access, and free OTT services.

Airtel earlier launched One Airtel plan bundling the Airtel Xstream Box on a refundable security basis. Now, the telco has revamped the same One Airtel service by including four services, namely postpaid, DTH, fiber, and landline connections. The new One Airtel plan is expected to rollout on March 25, according to a few reports.

One Airtel Expected Features

The One Airtel plan is said to include Airtel Digital TV, Airtel Xsteam Fibre, and mobile data plans under one roof. According to a report by 91mobiles, Airtel will bring out three plans at the time of launch as part of the pilot project. The report also notes that these plans will be limited to key markets initially and will further determine future rollout depending on audience review.

Additionally, a poster of the One Airtel plan further reveals details like one bill, one call center, zero switching cost, and more. Currently, the exact price of the One Airtel plans remains unknown. But it's believed to start at less than Rs. 1,000 and maximum of up to Rs. 2,000. Like all plans, the more expensive the plan, the greater the benefits.

The next plan, likely costing Rs. 1,500 will offer 125GB mobile data, 500GB broadband data with free DTH and streaming access. Lastly, the most expensive of the lot, the Rs. 2,000 plan also includes the same benefits with additional features like voice calling and more.

Airtel isn't the only one formulating a bundled service. Previously, Jio also launched a similar service bringing together broadband, landline, and set-top box service. The Jio Fiber plan costs Rs. 699 per month and offers 100GB of data with 100 Mbps speeds. Once the One Airtel pilot is rolled out, we'll know how Airtel and Jio will compete with each other.
