Timebytes is newly launched product from Airtel to monetize mobile data. With Blaze on user can buy mobile data when needed in small packets as simple as making a phone call.
Timebytes solution is targeted for operator-prepaid customers running using Google Android devices and Apple iOS users.
Instead of buying megabyte based data packet, you buy time usage when you need, when you want it. Purchase is automatically charged from your prepaid balance. You're only paying from the time you need to access the Internet.
Timebytes works on Google’s Android OS and Apple iOS devices. Devices running Windows Mobile or Blackberry operating systems are not supported nor in the plans to be supported.
Timebytes application utilizes WiFi connectivity for purchasing data packets if available. If you happen to have WiFi connection in use, Timebytes app will not appear nor interfere on your device usage when WiFi is used. Blaze on will only appear and require your input when an application is trying to access the Internet over cellular network.
Android installation package can be installed via dedicated website and Google Play Store. Android application updates will be automatically available only from Google Play Store. iOS installation packages and updates are available via Apple App Store.
Timebytes app needs certain permissions from you and your device in order to offer the best data service, the most optimal prices and offer them contextually to you. Our application does not inspect or collect the actual data content.For example, none of the details in your SMSs, social media, email, photos or any other content gets inspected. Application inspects only metadata and makes your data anonymous. Keeping you anonymous and your data private is important to us and we will not pass any data for third parties from which individual users could be identified.
Installation package is 2.8MB and its installation footprint on device is around 3MB.
When you're using package which is tied into data consumption in megabytes you can easily run out of your quota, but when you buy packet which is tied into time you're really paying for the time you need to use the Internet on your mobile.
When user subscribes to Timebytes –service and is already subscribed to data pack, during registration process user will be automatically disabled from using data pack. After this user can no longer purchase any data packages etc. through xyz. If user wants to continue using data as the primary self-care solution they must unregister from Timebytes –app, either via customer care or through the app itself.
Once the purchase has been done the timer starts to run immediately and time packet cannot be paused and data connection is up and running until the packet time expires.
