We present simple tips on picking the best postpaid plan that will benefit your parent’s usage patterns and monthly budget.
Your parent might have a prepaid connection that they don’t have much use for. They may be tired of taking top ups every month, and decide to switch to a more affordable postpaid connection.
First off, ask your parent if they are sure about migrating from a prepaid connection to a postpaid one. If their usage is low and they are comfortable with the plan they have, then they can stick to their prepaid connection. But if they like to browse extensively, watch movies, talk with their friends and even indulge in a bit of gaming, then a postpaid plan is better. Besides, they only need to pay the postpaid bill basis their usage – no need to track consumption and stay within usage limits before taking a top-up, like a prepaid connection.
Here’s how you can select the best postpaid plan for your parent:
* Explore different postpaid plans with them.
Every mobile service provider has different prepaid plans. Each offers a unique set of features and benefits. Each is also priced differently from the other. Sit down with your parent and explore the different plans being offered – look up plans that offer unlimited calling (local, STD and international) as well as sufficient amounts of data for uninterrupted browsing. Also check the bill payment procedure – your parent should be able to do it easily by themselves using the provider’s website or smartphone app.
* Pick something affordable.
If your parent is a senior citizen, then chances are they are not employed any more. Naturally, they will think twice before spending money on an expensive connection, even if it is the best postpaid plan. Check for the best postpaid plans by reputed providers, which are available for less but which offer a host of benefits. For example, the Airtel Infinity @Rs 499 plan is a great one to begin with. It offers a humongous 40 GB 3G or 4G data, with data rollover, unlimited calling, access to Airtel TV, Wynk Music and one-year subscription to Amazon Prime. That’s a lot of benefits for just Rs 499!
* Check the speeds and network connectivity.
Browse online for user testimonials on the data transmission speeds for the best postpaid plans in India at the moment. The speed must be high (at least 10 mbps) and the network must have always-on capability. This last feature helps in emergencies, when your parent needs to contact you for urgent assistance.
* Go with a leading service provider only.
Though there are many mobile service providers, there are only a few really great ones that offer the best postpaid plans and excellent customer service. Take your time to research the different service providers, but back your hunch and go with those that have the largest subscriber base. If a certain company has the biggest customer share in the country, it just means that their network and services are top notch!
