I Am An Airtel Customer Now

It has finally happened. I joined up as a customer to a company that I never though I would join up with – Airtel. I have worked with both Idea and Vodafone and they are ofcourse huge rivals with each other and Airtel. Ofcourse a few years ago Reliance did what they did and came up with Jio and gave away free internet for many months and created a huge customer base and made it near impossible for Vodafone & Idea to compete.

Those two companies have since merged to stay competitive (and also laid off a lot of their staff in the process, some of whom I know and some of whom are my friends) and make whatever money from their share in the process as Jio loomed large in the spectrum. Airtel is the¬†second largest mobile network operator in India¬†and the¬†second largest mobile network operator in the world¬†with over 411.42 million subscribers. Airtel was named India’s 2nd most valuable brand in the first ever Brandz ranking.

Anyway there was always something about Airtel I never liked (I always thought that their plans seemed to be catered towards more kids in school & colleges and people just fresh out of them. I do not think that is the case anymore and haven’t for a while. So I took a new postpaid connection with them which I will put in my Oppo F11 Pro phone while the Vodafone connection goes to my new Realme X2 Pro.
