Telecom service provider Bharti Airtel Friday launched a per second billing plan.
As per the new plan, the customers will be charged one paisa per second for all local and national long-distance calls within Bharti's network and 1.20 paise per second for calls to other networks, the company said in a statement.

The "Freedom Plan" will be available across the country in all the 4.25 lakh towns and villages covered by the Airtel distribution network.
Customers can also subscribe to the "Airtel Advantage" plan that offers 50 paise per minute tariff for all calls within the Airtel network and 60 paise per minute for calls to other networks.
