Uber India is thrilled to announce an innovative collaboration with Bharti Airtel – the largest wireless carrier in India and third largest wireless carrier in the world. Through this partnership, Uber riders in India can pay for their trips with Airtel’s mobile wallet, Airtel Money. Additionally, Uber riders in Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Delhi will now be the first in India to enjoy free high-speed internet from Uber, powered by Airtel 4G. This service will soon be rolled out for all Uber riders in India. Uber WiFi only offers access for those who are riding as passengers. Uber will offer commuters free high-speed internet, powered by Airtel 4G – allowing riders to surf the Internet, use favorite apps or message friends and family during their ride without incurring any data charges! Airtel will also become Uber’s official telecom partner across India and support the company’s rapid growth in the country by offering mobile, data and device plans to Uber driver-partners.
