Postpaid Family Plans vs. Individual Plans – Which is Better?
We are into our smartphones the whole day. Smartphones are useful for a myriad of ways; however, your smartphone can only be useful as long as the internet plan is on. If you do not have the correct plan for yourself, then you should definitely get an upgrade. But so many postpaid plans across a variety of price points can eventually make you wonder – ‘which is the best postpaid plan for me?’ No worries, we are here to answer some of your lingering doubts. In this blog, we will take you through the differences between family plan vs. individual plan and see which is the one that is best for you.
Let us begin.
What is an individual postpaid plan?
An individual postpaid plan is tailor-made just for you. Think about all the benefits that you could get with an Airtel postpaid plan. All that, but just to be used by you.
What is a family postpaid plan?
A family postpaid plan means that you still get to keep the same set of benefits. However, you get an added SIM card for free with your postpaid plan. This add-on SIM will be billed under the same plan, but there will be no other expenses. Just pay for the single Airtel family postpaid plan and you will get an extra SIM as add-on. Moreover, you will not be restricted to just a single add-on SIM. The pricier the plan, the more SIM add-ons you can get.
We hope this has helped to clear the air on family plan vs. individual plan for you.
