Airtel's latest voice calling plan for its broadband customers shortly after BSNL announced free calling during night hours through for its landline customers. State-run telco hopes the move will help boost its landline subscribers base in the country.
The move is likely to prompt other service providers to focus on the broadband customers. It's also likely the move will help boost number of landline users.
