Recently airtel has announced a new internet data sharing pack which is called ‘My Airtel Family’ Service. This service allows the prepaid users of airtel to share his/her 3G/4G internet plan (2G not allowed!) with any other 5 prepaid airtel users. I think presuming that most of the people will share their plans with their family members they named it “My Family Plan”. Although this is no at all limited to only family people.
You can share your 3G/4G airtel internet balance with pretty much any other airtel user. One bad thing is you can’t share your 2G internet with your family if you want.
The Service is free and has a lot of potentials. You see normally small internet plans (Below 1GB) tend to charge a lot more than the big once (>1GB), so with this plan, you can buy a big internet plan from airtel and share that with your whole family.
Also, if you want then you can share it with your friends, but they must be Airtel prepaid customers from the same telecom Circle. There are some other limitations of this service as well, you can check all the terms and conditions of this on the official website of airtel.

After you read the terms and conditions (If you really want to read all that!), you can check below to learn How to Share your Airtel Data(3G/4G) with Family and friends for free using the “My Airtel Family” plan.
The procedure for sharing the internet data of your airtel sim with other 5 people is pretty easy. All you need to do is create a Family by going to the official website of airtel, on the website you have to log in and then create a family whom you want to share your airtel internet data with.
On that page, you have to add mobile numbers of your family members (to share data with them). You will see options to add your family members mobile numbers. Just enter any Airtel mobile number whom with you want to share your internet balance with and click on add, that’s it you are done.
Now your mobile’s data plan will be available to use from all of that device. For instance, if you brought a plan of 5GB then all these device’s can use that data. It’s up to you and your family members on how much data each one of you will going to use. One thing which should have included(BUT NOT!) in this plan is the ability to track the usage of each individual family members, maybe they will include this feature in the near future.

Now after you add any airtel number on the website as a family, the service will automatically share all your data plans with that person unless you remove that number from your family plan. Follow the method below for deleting any airtel number from “My Airtel Family” plan.
For doing this, you can again login o the official Airtel website and remove any number from there or you can send an SMS <DEL> <space> <10 digits mobile number> to 121. After this, that number will no longer receive advantages of airtel data that you have recharged your mobile phone with.

Now Family Data Share is something new that Airtel has introduced and I really found it useful. With family data share, you can now share your 3G/4G internet plans with your family.
Although many other telecoms already have other plans like this for a long time with different variants of the same thing. But being the biggest telecom operator of the country airtel can gain huge profit from this. More and more people will become attracted to their service and this will ultimately lead to better brand popularity through word of mouth.
