Telenor India recently launched first-of-its kind night data packs that come with built in bill shock control and a scheduling feature that enables users to automate actions such as video downloads without them having to be awake as the process takes place. The exclusive night data packs which start from Rs 2 to Rs 48 with validity ranging from 1 to 28 days were launched in its six operating circles. These packs are valid for usage between 11 PM and 7 AM, and offer data benefits up to 1 GB. 

The plans address bill shock by allowing downloading and browsing to continue uninterrupted even after the allocated free quota of data is exhausted with the user charged a maximum of Rs 5 per day at a pulse rate of 2 paisa/20 Kb of data. After this, the user can access unlimited data until 7 am the following morning.

To save videos overnight, users can use Smart Offline integration feature which comes with the data packs.

Amaresh Kumar, Chief Product Officer, Telenor India
We have seen that increasingly subscribers are downloading content from Internet including videos at night as the network is relatively less congested. With the night data packs, we are making data usage simple to understand.
