Bharti Airtel introduced innovative features to the international roaming for its smartphone customers.
# Real Time Usage Tracking: Using Airtel Thanks app, both postpaid and prepaid customers will now be able to track their international roaming pack usage real time.
# No Unwanted Data Usage: 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
# Enable / Disable IR Service with a single touch: Airtel postpaid customers can now enable or disable their IR service with just one click through the Airtel Thanks app for control of spends
# Pre-Book IR Packs, Use Later: Airtel Prepaid customers can now purchase an IR pack up to 30 days prior to their actual date of travel. The pack validity will start only after they connect to an international mobile network. This feature is already available to Airtel Postpaid customers
# Global Packs: Airtel has developed new global packs which cover the most travelled countries. This would allow seamless travel across the world with just one pack
