Just like BSNL Broadband, you have the comfort of checking your usage amounts in Airtel on a daily basis. All you have to do is create your account online following this link.
You’ll need to provide your Airtel landline number, Account number (can be found in the initial bill) and the activation date or Last bill number or last payment amount.
Once you register, you can log in any time in to your personalized account from Airtel.in under My account and check the usage amount (if your broadband plan is a limited download plan).
You can also check all the calls that are made from the landline number in any period.
You can click on the Account Information tab on the left side and then click on either unbilled amount or unbilled details to view your usage details.
Note that if you are seeing unbilled amount, you will be seeing an exaggerated amount as the unbilled amount as it doesn’t take your monthly tariff plan in to consideration.
For example, if you are on Rs.749 plan with 8GB download limit and you don’t make over 100 minutes of calls from your landline and not use more than 8GB of bandwidth, your bill should never exceed Rs.749 (plus taxes). But when you see the unbilled amount, you may see amount of over Rs.1000 and so on. It is because, the calculation doesn’t take your monthly plan into consideration but takes each pulse as Rs.1.20. At the end of the month (or your current months billing cycle), the amount will be finalized according to your plan.
You can see the unbilled details and confirm the bandwidth amount you have used in terms of Units. Multiply it by 10 and you’ll have usage in KB.
As long as you don’t exceed your monthly limits, you will NOT be charged more than your tariff plan (plus taxes).
You can also make payments through your account by visiting the payments section. It currently has payment facility using almost all leading bank’s Internet banking accounts.
If you want to keep track of the unbilled amount/usage daily by an SMS alert for free, you can send an SMS as SUNB to 121.
Note that, your mobile number should be linked with your landline to make this possible. Contact customer support by dialling 121 from your landline to link your Airtel mobile number with your landline.
