New Delhi. Telecom company Airtel has changed the validity of Amazon Prime membership for its postpaid customers, reducing it from 1 year to 6 months. This membership is available with Airtel postpaid plans of Rs 499, Rs 999, Rs 1,199 and Rs 1,599. Airtel also offers Amazon Prime membership with some of its broadband plans. However, this change will not have any effect on broadband plans.
Airtel has told that the new plan is applicable from April 1. This means that those who had this Airtel plan before April 1, their membership will continue for 1 year. In all other cases, the validity of Prime membership has been reduced to 6 months. It is worth noting that other telecom operators can also make changes in their postpaid plans after this.
