Airtel: service presentation

Indian telecommunications provider Airtel has operations in 17 nations, the majority of which are in Africa.

Prepaid mobile phones make up a lot of the phones on the Airtel network. This means that before they can make calls, send texts, or use their data, users must purchase airtime, also known as talk-time or mobile credit.

Typically, Airtel phone airtime is topped off with a scratch card or pin number, both of which can be purchased at local stores; however, this method is not always convenient.
