Airtel also said that customers on international roaming would be able to be able to track the usage of the pack on a real-time basis.
“Once the IR pack benefits are exhausted by the customer, data services would be barred to protect against any unwanted charges due to over-usage. Customers can take another pack or a top up, on the go through Airtel Thanks app,” Airtel said in a statement.
Earlier, Fitch had given ‘stable’ outlook to Airtel. Fitch Ratings had affirmed that Bharti Airtel Limited’s Long-Term Foreign-Currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at ‘BBB-‘ and senior unsecured rating ‘BBB-‘ and the Outlook on the IDR is Stable. The agency has also affirmed Bharti Airtel International (Netherlands) B.V.’s senior unsecured guaranteed bonds at ‘BBB-‘ and Network i2i’s subordinated perpetual bond at ‘BB’. Fitch removed Airtel from ‘Watch Negative’.
“The Stable Outlook reflects our view that an equity injection of $2 billion in January 2020 and EBITDA growth for the financial year ending March 2020 (FY20) and FY21 will be more than sufficient to offset the increase in debt to pay regulatory dues of up to $4.9 billion, which stem from a dispute over adjusted gross revenue (AGR).
