25 Jan

The GSM Association has announced its list of nominees for the prestigious Global Mobile Awards that will be declared at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. In a series of posts, we take a look at some of the Indian companies and their products that have been nominated. The first post in this series covers Aircel and its value added services.

Aircel is keeping its fingers crossed. The service provider is hoping to win accolades at the GSMA Mobile World Congress at Barcelona. It has been nominated in two categories – for the ‘Best Mobile Internet Service’ and the ‘Best Mobile Music’.


Aircel’s ‘Pocket Internet’ is a game changer service that enables its subscribers to access the Internet on their phones at affordable prices. Aircel provides top-up coupons worth Rs 15 and Rs 98 that enable users to browse unlimited Internet on the cellphones for three and thirty days, respectively. Prior to this service, users had to pay a fixed monthly rental and usage charges, which turned out to be a very expensive proposition. After Aircel’s offer, other carriers like Tata DoCoMo and Airtel followed suit with similar offers.

Similarly, Unlimited DiallerTunes pack by Aircel, which is nominated for the ‘Best Mobile Music Service’, allows users get change unlimited their caller tune at their will at no extra cost. Users can choose to pay Rs 7, Rs 31 or Rs 240 for weekly, monthly and yearly subscription, respectively.
