Idea Cellular Introduces True Unlimited GPRS Packs

Idea Cellular Introduces True Unlimited GPRS PacksYeah you have read absolutely right, no APRIL FOOL’s DAY Joke in advance.

Idea cellular recently removed all types FUP or data capping from its Rs.5, Rs.16 and Rs.98 GPRS Packs for the prepaid customer of Kolkata and West Bengal circle.

Formerly they provided 30 MB, 500 MB and 6 GB inter browsing usage in Rs.5, Rs.16 and Rs.98 GPRS pack respectively.

Beyond free subscribers would have been charged as per base rate (currently 2p/KB).But now there is no data capping so that customer can browse internet in their mobile as well as in Laptop/PC by using mobile as modem without any worry or shocking balance deduction.

DETAILS AT A GLANCE:

MRP PREVIOUS BENEFIT CURRENT OFFERING VALIDITY
Rs.5 20MB Browsing Unlimited browsing Till Midnight[Auto Renewal Basis]
Rs.16 500MB Browsing Unlimited browsing 3  Days
Rs.98 6 GB Browsing Unlimited browsing 30 Days

For activation and more details please call Idea Customer Care @12345

Rs.16 and Rs.98 recharge coupons are only available only through easy recharge option from any idea retailer as quoted from one Idea cellular CC executive. To activate Rs.5 (Auto Renewal Basis) GPRS pack customer have to dial *567*910# from their mobile. It will take maximum 2 Hours to be activated (as per customer care it will be activated within 10Minutes).

No doubt its a good approach from Idea cellular keeping in mind about the customer privileges which is truly rare event. Aircel is still providing unlimited internet browsing through their Rs.14, Rs 27 and Rs.98 RCV in Kolkata and West Bengal circle.

Though BSNL withdrawn its unlimited 2G & 3G data packs to keep their network non-congested. As 5th largest player of Indian mobile market this move by Idea certainly kickstarts a tariff war in data market. Let’s wait and watch for other operators about their next step in GPRS segment!

  • dev April 6, 2011 1:12 pm

    @ppa
    you r right

  • ppa April 4, 2011 8:51 pm

    I have used !dea GRPS 6 months ago. At that time i realised that !dea is useless in terms of GPRS speed. We can hardly use 5MB data per day. For me 2GB @ rs. 98 is a unlimited plan. The download speed was 1-3 KBPS(through IDM).
    After that i never think about 1dea.
    Does !dea provide better speed now?

  • saurabh March 21, 2011 10:25 am

    are these plans for all india or only for w.b

  • KANNAN March 16, 2011 12:24 pm

  • ARJUN March 14, 2011 6:59 am

    @tushar k.
    Idiot Tata Docomo Is The Worst Gsm Operator in India Especially in Kerala It is Worst. Comparing To TD Aircel,AirTel,Vodafone,Idea are Better in Coverage Than This Idiotic Company and In UTTAR PRADESH(E) and Uttarakhand Telecom Circle, It Is Sharing Aircel Network. Even Uninor is Better Than TATA DOCOMO in U.P(E).

  • tushar k. March 14, 2011 12:16 am

  • AD March 12, 2011 7:18 pm

    @ARJUN any sign of vodafone 3G in karnataka?

  • dskushwaha March 12, 2011 4:54 pm

    Idea may be new entrant in you circle but it is quite old in other circle like Aircel id very old in TN circle but may be new in others.

  • Vicky March 12, 2011 4:37 pm

    @ARJUN
    Among the new entrants idea is having better coverage than any other and tariff is best among all Idea is giving 30 ps per min for all local calls for a year with just rc53
    Its 12 times cheaper than that of aircel airtel voda and bsnl

  • Keshav Jha March 12, 2011 2:57 pm

    Reliance has launched 3G in Bihar & Jharkhand.

  • ARJUN March 12, 2011 2:38 pm

    @abhijith
    Is Idea’s Coverage Better Nowadays in Tamilnadu?

  • ARJUN March 12, 2011 2:21 pm

    @selvam
    The Problem is AirTel is Not Having Edge Network in Karnataka Except Metros Of Karnataka i.e. Bangalore,Mysore,Belgaum and Hubli-Dharwad. And That’s Not all AirTel’s Coverage is Not Available, Where Idea and BSNL Are Having Excellent Coverage in Karnataka. AirTel’s Mobile Net Speed is Worst Than Aircel in Karnataka.

  • selvam March 12, 2011 11:56 am

    @ARJUN wat hapened to airtel..is it also lagging in providing tower..it is the top gained co.as per last fin year..

  • Raghu March 12, 2011 10:16 am

    @Keshav Jha
    ya now a days Mobile number portability there so it is just waste.

  • ARJUN March 12, 2011 9:59 am

    Raghu I’m Saying That In The Area Where I’m Located Vodafone, Idea,BSNL,Aircel,DOCOMO,Rgsm,RCDMA AND Uninor are Having Excellent Indoor Coverage. And I’ve Complained to Airtel Appelate Authority Regarding Coverage Matter on November 2010 She Said That It Will Be Done In A Few Weeks. No Improvement in Network. Idiotic AirTel

  • Keshav Jha March 12, 2011 9:49 am

    Raghu :
    @ARJUN
    how is vodafone coverage in your area. if Airtel is not able to provide coverage u have to write to appellate authority.

    Raghu bhai! Baat baat pe log Appellate Authority tak thode na chale jayenge! Itna time kiske pass hai! Better hai ki jo available hai asme se choose karein.

  • AD March 12, 2011 9:40 am

    Anyone checked 2G data speed in vodafone, Karnataka? I’am getting speed of 78Kbps previously was getting no more than 40Kbps..

    @bharathkumara
    Idea Has Improved a Lot in Services Compared to Last Year. In My Hometown I.e.in Kolar, The Area Which I Was Located AirTel Is The Only One Operator Having Worst Network Coverage. Following Details Of The Operators Having Towers in The Area Where I’m Located.
    Idea-1Tower
    TATA DOCOMO-2Towers
    BSNL MOBILE-2Towers
    Aircel-1Tower
    Vodafone-1Tower
    RelianceGSM/CDMA-1 Tower
    AirTel-0 Towers

  • ARJUN March 12, 2011 6:33 am

    @bharathkumara
    yeah Thank you. Now My Favorite Operators are Idea, Bsnl, Aircel and Uninor. First I Was Mad On Aircel, But Now I’m Realize Myself.

  • Keshav Jha March 12, 2011 12:18 am

    BSNL launches STV 26 in Bihar. BSNL2BSNL @10p/min for 30 days.

  • Keshav Jha March 11, 2011 11:35 pm

    Earlier when I used to check my IP detail in Gmail, it was showing India(WB)258.14…..- means West Bengal. Now it is showing India(BR)258.62…..- means Bihar. I am using BSNL SIM of Bihar. It seems that BSNL has installed a server in Bihar also.

  • bharathkumara March 11, 2011 10:12 pm

    @ARJUN
    why u changed u r mind from aircel to other network, u want to study more in telecom industry, please dont got mad with one network, their are lot of telecom network, please use and answer about the network, think before speak, that all, i have in my mind, i think u experianced now, u totaly changed… that nice, keep it up…. :)

    @bharathkumara
    According To Me Coveragewise Idea and BSNL are Best, Tariffs Wise Aircel, Uninor and Idea are Best and for Internet Idea and Uninor Are Best in Karnataka

  • bharathkumara March 11, 2011 9:49 pm

    @bharathkumara
    ya Idea’s speed has improved very much, im getting upto 25KB/sec even during evening hours, earlier speed used to be around 15KB/sec. Really improving very much. Aircel,Docomo have gone worse.

    Idea Is Excellent in Terms Of Quality and Coverage In Karnataka and They Have to Deploy BTS In The Places Like Horanadu. Bharath I Think Idea Has To Get 3G License in Karnataka Instead Of Docomo. What Do You Say?

    ARJUN :
    @bharathkumara
    Man, IDEA Guys Have To Setup Towers in Some Of The Places in Karnataka Like Horanadu, Amruthapura, Sulibele so That To Establish Coverage Over There. Leaving Those 3 Places Overall Coverage is Excellent. Shame On AirTel, Even They are The Market Leaders of Karnataka,They are Not Having Good Coverage Than Idea and BSNL in Karnataka. They Don’t Seems to Deploy Towers Across Karnataka. That’s Why MNP Result, AIRTEL Has Lost More Customers, Idea and BSNL Has Gain More No.of Customers

    buddy, if they idea 3g came in karnataka, we get super network service then others telecom, dont very it will happen with in few days, tover will be installed with in few weaks, it already working on it.

    Please DON’T expect this offer in Idea’s OLD CIRCLES…

  • Manoj Rajput March 11, 2011 9:49 am

    Raghu :
    hope it does not remove like BSNL did withdrawing the unlimited packs after some time. TRAI/DOT have to penalize the operators for doing that as some customers might not be aware also that the offers have been removed

    What can telcos do when Govt. has raised 2G spectrum prices…we thought that when 3G will be launched the 2G GPRS prices will go down and one can enjoy unlimited GPRS at low rates but TRAI has really disappointed everyone by raising 2G spectrum prices.

  • NAWAZ ELECTRONICS March 11, 2011 9:11 am

  • Amit.G March 11, 2011 8:46 am

    No dude it will not do like tat… actually idea has cme out from data capping so its very rare that it will move back again!!!

  • Amit.G March 11, 2011 8:43 am

    Anyways its good but will surely affect data speed…

  • Mane March 11, 2011 8:32 am

  • Saurav March 11, 2011 8:15 am

    Hope they implement the same for other circles too. But Idea 2G speed is not upto the mark these days and introduction of unlimited plans will affect it more.
