Airtel launches weekly WFH and social media packs

Airtel Lanka has announced the launch of a new range of dedicated weekly study and work-from-home (WFH) and social media (SM) packs in addition to its monthly packs. The new packs are launched to ensure that all users will continue to have access to their superior 4G network during the current crisis.


Airtel’s new weekly packs are designed to ensure that all users continue to benefit from affordable access to a superior 4G experience, at a time when internet access has become an absolute essential for all Sri Lankans.


“With the ongoing economic crisis, we knew we had to take every possible measure to ensure that pricing would not be an obstacle to customers who depend on our world-class network to stay connected to their studies, work, friends, and family. Our hope is that these new packs will help to ease their burden at this difficult time,” Airtel Lanka MD/CEO Ashish Chandra stated.


With just Rs. 85, Airtel users can purchase a basic WFH pack to gain access to 7 GB of data for MS Teams, Zoom, and Office 365, while Airtel’s Rs. 145 pack offers unlimited access to all three platforms, in addition to Google Classroom.


Meanwhile, the telco is also launching a new social media pack at just Rs. 128, which will provide unlimited access to Whatsapp, Facebook, Youtube, and Facebook Messenger for seven days.


Airtel’s launch of weekly study, WFH, and social media packs follow the telco’s recent introduction of its Unlimited Freedom Packs, a first-of-its-kind telco product in the Sri Lankan market that provides users with unlimited free local voice calls to any operator and social media to its range of Freedom Plans, starting from as low as Rs. 749.


Airtel’s “Freedom Packs/Plans” are backed by the telco’s single largest investment in Sri Lanka since its entry into the island in 2009. Airtel’s purpose-built 4G network promises a superior user experience including 99% buffer-free streaming, noticeably quicker loading times and improved indoor coverage with 4G signals. Notably, this state of the art tech infrastructure is also built on a 5G ready network.
