“Over the last few years, we have seen a steady rise in the international communication traffic to and from India. The high international call costs, however, are a deterrent towards customers freely connecting with friends and family when abroad. At the same time, factors such as fast expanding penetration of smartphones and adoption of data services have led to a new market preference for integrated forms of communication such as video calling, instant messaging etc. In such a scenario – Airtel, as India’s leading operator, is well poised to address this market gap and exploit its potential. airtel talk is pegged at working as an alternative to current options (like expensive ISD voice-only calls, sub-quality messenger calls, calling cards etc.) available for customers looking to connect with India and other parts of the world”, said Ajay Chitkara, CEO – Global Business, Bharti Airtel.

Airtel’s robust network infrastructure across its countries of operations and strong carrier alliances in other geographies will collectively deliver high quality service experience for airtel talk users at affordable costs.

Indians residing abroad and making frequent international calls can now choose from a range of compelling airtel talk plans and also enjoy 10 minutes of free talk time to India as part of an introductory offer.
