    SAGAR :
    WHEN WILL IT COME IN MAHARASHTRA

    SD :
    I want to go outside Mumbai for just 1 week
    And this Plan is for 1 year, there should have also been a plan for such short roaming…
    And @ SAGAR, Aircel is in Mah but only in Mumbai till the date(and i guess it is in Jammu Kashmir also, not sure)

    Already present in many parts of maharashtra Ind 804 select it manually otherwise it will select vodafone in maharashtra roaming

    Idea Mumbai already reduced National roaming rates…. Rcv Rs.49 will give u all local/std @ 1ps/sec from home network, as well as from roaming in Idea network nationally will be charged as 1ps/sec for incoming/outgoing from roaming..
    Other Rcv Rs.54 will give u local/ std from home network .40ps/min for local calls std at .50ps/min from home network and from roaming incoming/outgoing flat @ .70ps/min..

    Abhijit :What about Loop Mobile In Mumbai? will it reduce the national roaming rates?? As it has no presence in other circles… So after MNP get introduces all Loop Customers will first change the moible operators to get benefits of reduced roaming rates by other Pan India operators…

    LOOP is FLOP

    kaushik :Aircel also think they are getting same response like AirtelTotal copy of Airtel plan only SMS charges are differentBut Airtel will beat Aircel

    Airtel reduces these tariffs in kolkata from Rs 90-99 region to Rs 40-49 region
    So Aircel is quite expensive than Airtel.

    Faltu plan from Aircel…. Just copy & paste of Airtel Turbo Plan… Is Aircel assuming itself as Airtel!! as in Aircel only “C” alphabet is different rest spelling is same as Airtel….. But Airtel has pan India presence with great interior coverage in all states…But aircel has strong coverage only in south India… Better to go with Airtel by seeing above roaming rates by Aircel, atleast we will get throughout coverage..

    BSNl all calls & sms @49 paisa and reliance all calls & sms @ 50paisa is the best..
    AIRCEL is not offering the pay per second plan in roaming..only bsnl,reliance, tata docomo, vodafone is offering the pay per second plan in roaming..

    AIRCEL travel plans are just a copy of AIRTEL’s roaming plans..nothing new..just a copy..the only difference with airtel is that aircel is offering all local & std calls @1p/sec in travel plan-99(pay per sec in home network)
