After Vodafone upped the data limits on its RED postpaid plans, Airtel has revised its Infinity postpaid plan worth Rs 499 that now offers more data to the subscribers.

The Airtel Rs 499 Infinity postpaid plan now benefits the subscribers with 75GB of data, as opposed to the 40GB data limit earlier.
