How to change tariff plan on airtel
There is no one size fits all network plan. People are different, live and interact differently, and hence have different expectations on network usage. While what some others do mostly is make calls on the network, there are others who heavily use it for data. Which is why tariff plans exist and in this article, you are going to see how you can change your tariff plan on airtel.
How much voice or data value you get depends on your tariff plan. On some, a recharge will give more voice bonus and benefits on recharge, while others will give you more data bonus and access to cheaper data plans.
However, there are others that are balanced when it comes to voice and data benefits. Which is why it is important to be on the right data plan. The rate which you will be charged for calls depends on the tariff plan you are on.
If you are charged more airtime when making calls, then you might be on a tariff plan that Is designed to give more data benefits than voice benefits.
That would be a lot of expenses over time if you are not someone that uses data heavily. If you are on a tariff plan that doesn’t suit your network needs, whether you are a voice or data person, you are going to need to change it.
