Do you always find your data empty? Are you always caught off guard and get surprised that you do not have any data to use to access the internet? If you are an Airtel account holder, then there is a solution for you—the Airtel Smartbytes.
Browsing the internet or watching video streaming on your mobile phone is a way to get information and typically to consume time. This is the normal activity of most smartphone users. They get their entertainment fix by accessing their favorite online platform.
But that consumes data. And if you are into video streaming sites like YouTube, you could easily consume all your allocated data for the day or the whole month. And that is what Airtel Smartbytes can help you with. This feature can notify you when you reach a certain amount of data left or if you need to top up for extra data allowance.
What is Airtel Smartbytes?
The Airtel Smartbytes is a data usage pack that enables Airtel broadband users to top up more data allowance each time they reach their defined, allocated data plan. This specific feature is very useful every time they reach their data limit.
This feature allows more flexibility for Airtel customers to choose for a fixed and affordable plan. And still be able to go further for those times that they need more internet data. Even if they already exceeded the monthly settled plan, they can still get access to the internet.
The Airtel Smartbytes also added the notification feature where you will be notified whenever you reach the 80% amount of data used. And notify you again when you reach the 100% overall data amount. If you installed the Smartbytes mobile version, you will be notified directly within your device. If not, you still have the SMS and the email to tell you that you are almost emptying your data allowance.
How to Check Data Usage
Checking your Airtel account’s data usage is easy with Smartbytes. It will just take a couple of clicks, and you should be done in a minute or two. Here’s a brief overview on how to do it.
