      Hi Vijay:

      For 199 rs Idea provide 2GB 2G at normal speed,
      and once 2GB limit is reach, operator reduce speed and cap it to 40 killobits per sec = 5Killobytes per second.

  • Lissy September 12, 2013 3:01 pm

    Sir i activated idea unlimited 2g plan for Rs.201, its valid for 1 month yesterday ie. 11th september 2013 and got an sms too confirming the recharge. But, till now the same is not updated in their system and hence I am unable to make any calls. Kindly look into the matter at the earliest. My prepaid cell no. is 9947691983

  • Rahul June 20, 2013 11:30 am

    I am from Ahmedabad. I activate idea internet 199 unlimited plan. The speed is very very low and bad. It has only 40 kbps at start and then 5 to 10 kbps. By this speed we can load our facebook page in just 10 minutes. Thats great fucking speed. This is very frustrating. So i am going to change my network.

  • Saurabh June 7, 2013 11:17 am

    After reading all the comments down here regarding speed problem, I have no hesitation in saying that most of the Indian Mobile Internet Consumers are completely stupid. These people are completing 2GB in few days in hope that their speed will increase to 40kbps when company clearly states that it will be reduced to 40kbps and they (people) don’t know what kbps actually is… 95% of the consumers keep blaming companies but problem is always with them who are illiterate enough not to understand the terms and conditions of any pack either it be Voice, SMS or Data. I think companies should now start providing information either in Hindi or regional languages to let these idiots know what it actually meant as they have got language problems.

    Not only consumers but people at customer care departments of almost all telecom companies are confused. Yesterday I interacted with CC of Reliance Netconnect+ to let them know that I’m getting only 0.25Mbps i.e 32KB/s speed which is too low as compared with 200-250KB/s or 1.6-2Mbps that company promises.

    Here is what she replied, “Sir, 0.25Mbps speed is not possible with Netconnect + as 0.25 X 1024 comes out to be 256 Mbps and our dongle supports only 3.1Mbps. So you are providing wrong info.” Now you think how can 1/4 of a thing can be 1024 times of itself. Mathematics redefined by her. New law or theorem. :D I was like banging my head in the wall. She was multiplying 0.25 with 1024 instead of dividing it by 8 i.e 256/8= 32KB/s. She didn’t even thought that 0.25Mbps is less than 3.1Mbps and made it 256Mbps.

    When I asked her how many bits are there in a byte? She replied- 1024. lol

    So now we can understand that there is a stupidity going on at both the ends i.e with consumers and with helpers also. Both don’t have technical info. So where do you expect a ship to go when both the sailors don’t know how to sail through?

    I request TT to come up with an article like, “The World Of Bits and Bytes” that can let these stupids know that company isn’t cheating them.

    On TT, there are so many who easily understand but others are still hanging in between.

    • Rahul June 20, 2013 11:42 am

      Saurabh has explained very good. Saying customer is stupid and don’t know the internet and interpreting KBPS and mbps plan. You are such a overwhelming and foolish person. I want to ask one question why you recharged unlimited internet plan, because you want to do something for but what you feel when your internet load only single facebook sign in page in 10 minutes. And only google page in 2 minutes.
      By this way you are paying more electricity bill compared to internet plan. Idea is just have very bad internet plan.

  • Roshan June 6, 2013 3:58 pm

    I m Roshan. I have activated 199 GPRS plan on 15 may 2013. It says that after 2 GB the speed will increase from 15 kbps to 40 kbps. So I used 2 GB within 5 to 6 days. But after that instead of increasing, it reduced to 5kbps. so I called the customer care but they said they regret the inconvenience but couldn’t solve the problem. Please help me. My no. Is 7377706264. I have the right to get 40 kbps. This is cheating . Everyone is complaining the same about 199 GPRS pack. This is not the way to treat the customer. I deserve my right as I spend rs.199 behind it.

    • Saurabh June 6, 2013 5:07 pm

      After reading your comment, I just can’t stop myself from commenting and laughing too. Are you mad or what? The 40kbps is 40 kilo bits per second which is equal to 5 Kilo Bytes Per Sec. 1 Kilo Bytes (1KBps) = 8 Kilo bits (8Kbps). Here in India operators write speed in bits per sec and not bytes per sec. So 40/8=5KBps.

      You’re also among the 90 percent of Indians who often get confused in KBps and kbps. From which world you are? Even in the plan information and SMS to the customers, operator clearly states that speed will be reduced to 40kbps after 2GB then what made you think that speed will increase? Don’t you the meaning of reduce?

      The 15 KBps or 15 Kilo Bytes Per Sec you get is actually 15X8= 120 Kilo Bits Per Sec or 120kbps and after 2GB it reduces to 40kbps or 5KBps.

      Operator is not cheating you at all. It’s only your stupidity that you didn’t understand.

      • kevin June 18, 2013 2:58 am

        i from vizag i have activated idea 3g 46/- , validity is 3days 120 minits usage time, but i can get only 60 minits i.e 3600 secends . i am every time complaining to idea customer care but they told they giving 120 minits usage time. so what should i do sir.

      • Sagar October 18, 2013 3:12 am

        Sourabh..

        Here in odisha when I asked my idea customer care about Rs.199 net plan they said for first 2gb speed is 15-25 KBPS and after 2gb speed is increase to 40 KBPS. then I asked them KILO BITS PER SECOND OR KILO BYTES PER SECOND, they again say For first 2gb speed is 15-25 KILO BYTES PER SECOND NOT KILO BITS PER SECOND and after 2gb Speed is increase to 40 KILO BYTES PER SECOND NOT KILO BITS PER SECOND..
        then I disconnect the call and agin called them, they said same….
        if u dont understand here is Odisha idea customer care number call him- 9090012345

        • prasad mayya October 18, 2013 8:12 am

          yes ….. they are right….. 15 to 25 KBPS (kilo BYTES per sec ) means around 200kbps (kilo bits per sec )… after 2gb you will get 40 kbps

  • ajay May 24, 2013 12:20 pm

    what is this.idea 2g unlimited plan in 2gb use to speed up to 40 kbps.my download spees only 4kbps……idea fucking to customer…………

  • Saikalyan April 10, 2013 6:02 pm

    I am Saikalyan from Odisha.
    Mob. No=9090956636.
    Recharged 199 GPRS Idea on 20 march 2013.
    I don’t know what to do.
    Before 2gb i got 8 to 14 kbps after that I’m getting 2kbps or low.
    & the strange thing is that idea customer care executives and gprs experts don’t know any solution. After 10 time complem within half a month time.
    They are saying that your problem has been solved.
    But don’t even want to talk about speed.
    I’m unsatisfay with the response but can’t call to mr. Birll for that.
    Now what to do any one suggest me.
    “What an Idea Sarjiii.”

    • Idea Cellular April 12, 2013 7:56 pm

      Dear Customer,

      We wish to inform you that your complaint for GPRS related issue has already been initiated with us; under reference number 1-33542252660 and you shall hear on the same at the earliest.

      Regards,
      Idea Cellular

      • Saikalyan May 2, 2013 2:29 am

        Dear Idea service provider,
        thanks for your response,
        I’m happy at list you are responding.
        But the Worst thing is that you are doing just Nothing except registering a complaint and giving a useless number.
        My Mobile number is 9090956636 odisha.
        I have got a Reference number on dated 06-04-2013
        “1-33431523523″
        & on date 10-04-2013
        “1-33542252660″ & again
        “1-33663824187″
        on dated 13-04-2013 but the problem is the same mention above, regarding GPRS.
        Now i don’t have any word neither have the presence to registering more complaint.
        I trayed changing my hand set, and my location also but the Problem remain unchanged.
        thinking about changing network! & now I am forced to think that how to teach you about Customer retention.
        You should give good service, why you doing the nonsence act. if your aim to be a good service provider then you should maintain your liability towards your customer.
        As an aware consumer I want to teach my service provider that how to give Satisfactory Service.
        I request the Telecom Talk Members & specially Sanjay sir to guide me & help me.

        thanks & regards
        Saikalyan.

Now my internet speed is terrible its less than 4KB/s and sometimes less than a kb. I called idea first a girl attended the call and talked nicely after my querry she told me that she’l connect my call to a senior officer. I waited and the call was connected to the senior officer. Im 100%sure that he have been sleeping there. He asked me whats the problem i told him everything he asked me to wait ,he has to check something….. He again went to sleep. After few minutes i shouted many times Hello hello….. The he responded. And told me that in idea 2g the maximum speed is 5KB/s and u can get more than that in 3g only. I told him that i got 30KB/s in 2g he told me that its maximum speed and something like that…. And asked me to wait againthen no responce i waited for 5minutes and that stupid discontinued the call. He dont know tha answer actually and dont know how to behave to customers these people dont know anything, i want my problem to be solved quickly. My name is Manu Prasadan ,Im from kerala my mobile number is 9744953981. Now my call is not connecting to customercare always saing that the executives are busy. They are busy in sleeping for sure!!

    me too feeling cheated by idea. Initially was getting 8-14 Kbps but now speed hardly reaches 4Kbps.and even google is taking 5 minutes to load. Before activating this service i confirmed with customer care executive that fup is 40 kilo bytes per second and not kilo bits per second. I feel utterly cheated and i’m going to port to either docomo(my original operator before porting in to idea ) or aircel(true unlimited).

  • Chandran k November 8, 2012 3:55 pm

    I activated Idea unlimited plan @ Rs.154. For first 1GB I got nearly 20kbps. Now its just 5 kbps. I feel cheated. Aircel’s 97 was far better

  • Rahul October 26, 2012 12:56 pm

    I is having worst customercare in entire telecom industry. You mail them call them but no respond except auto mails saying we have received mail & will revert soon. Even bsnl is better if u lock complain in bsnl they call u till complain is resolved.

    Idea is biggest fraud activation of services in telecom industry.

  • IdeaCellular October 25, 2012 12:39 pm

    Spiderman :
    u knw the issue happened with !dea ?
    I’ve activated their 8 Rs 3G pack (30 min one day validity) using USSD code and got the confirmation saying the same was activated. Then I connected net in PC(3G only mode was selected in fon). I got around 600 kbps speed & within 30 sec balance turned to 0. They took around 180 Rs !
    Idea First reply – I connected in 2G mode as per their application, that s why billed.
    Raised around 10 mails & 20 calls & Finally given two complaints in Pgportal & then got my money back from this operator after a lot of escalations !
    Now their reply -> The customer used net before activation of the plan !
    Thank God, they haven’t told 24 hours timeframe to activate 1 day validity plan !
    After this incident after activated same plan again got the confirmation that time itself & this time waited 15 min & started browsing. Same issue continues.. In noway they will accept its their technical glitch ! Got the refund for this also after complaining pgportal..
    If I activate again, I’m sure this issue will be exists

    2G data services in name of unlimited are getting pathetic day by day.If you can have 256Kbps as standard for broadband,then why don’t the same condition apply for 2G gprs/edge connection.Forcing all customers to move to 3G is going to backfire at some point.ARPU will surely get down.

  • anurags October 20, 2012 11:37 am

    what is the use of 2gb or even umlimited at 40kbps if u cant use the data outside your home circle.. idea wale sirji plz give an idea to atleast start data roaming in 2g leave alone 3g…. first implement this then think about capping speeds…

    mean all 2g user speed gone back to as on year 2003

    Very bad idea! Sir ji!

  • amarrdiip October 19, 2012 10:16 pm

    i think we will see more such wast plan in coming future. due to failed govt. policy & corupt minister @ center

  • vikas619 October 19, 2012 9:32 pm

    All are same. like Idea and others , Aircel has also reduced 2g gprs speed by applying FUP on speed. their so called “unllimted” 98 gprs plan gives 3gb data at 128 kbps ,after that speed will be reduced to 16kbps. see link yourself

    Manoj Thakur :
    I recharged my Reliance GSM with Rs.99 data pack which previously provided 2 GB 2G data but now I got 6GB 2G data on the same denomination and speed is also very good compared to others. Now Reliance network is best in my town comparing to other provides like BSNL, Idea, Airtel or Aircel.

    @Manoj Thakur
    which city??

  • Jainodin October 19, 2012 8:14 pm

    120 minutes of 3G data at Rs. 45/- (valid for 3 days) is the best data plan available with idea cellular.
    I get 5mbps speed ane can manage to download 2.5 to 3.0 GB data in 2 hours.

  • Sudhakar October 19, 2012 7:46 pm

    What?. FUP in 2G GPRS?. 2G speed before FUP itself is like the speed that we get after FUP !!!!!. Then think after FUP?.

  • sushant October 19, 2012 7:24 pm

    After 3G auction this is a straight strategy adopted by telcos, cap 2G internet speed, raise 2G internet charges…slowly force customers to migrate to 3G internet services.

  • anoop October 19, 2012 7:22 pm

    BSNL 101 recharge in kerala gives u 1GB data, SMS@5Ps Local&STD bsnl calls @30ps and other calls @ 50 Ps for 30 days …

  • anoop October 19, 2012 7:13 pm

    Go for BSNL GPRS199 plan in kerala, which gives 8GB (4GB day + 4GB night) for 30 days… GPRS111 gives 2GB, GPRS89 gives 1250 MB… Use UMTS mode while in 3g coverage areas… you will get 240kbps…

  • Ashish Verma October 19, 2012 6:59 pm

    In India companies like Idea and Airtel, Aircel, Vodafone are making internet speed already too slow with 2G. This is not expected from them. Its a matter of shame that they are capping speed in 2G service.

  • Avenger October 19, 2012 6:43 pm

    Swarnava :
    In Kolkata,Uninor is best in terms of network,data speeds(After Vodafone),and tariff palns.data speed fixed at around 228.2kbps(28.52KBps) all days long except peak hours around 8pm-11.30 pm..

    Yes I’m from Rishra and here also I get speed 236 Kbps and Files download at 28 to 30 KBps.

  • Saurabh Gupta October 19, 2012 6:35 pm

    their planes are same tactics are same everything is same why don’t airtel vodafone and idea merge themseff into one if you want to loot why 3 names 1 name is enough

    Big companies like Idea and Airtel are making internet speed a joke. This is not expected from them. Its a matter of shame that they are capping speed in 2G service. In 2G inter speed it already very low. They why is this capping thing coming. Surely the internet service is degrading day by day.

    all big companies are running behind money and not behind goodwill of customer.
    they know,customer will shout for few days then settle down.

  • jigar October 19, 2012 5:53 pm

    Videocon restarted its STV & VTOPUP reacharge in Gujarat from the 12th October-2012 and all STV and VTOPUP reacharges easily succesfull and also i get average speed 210kbps (26-27 KBPS) DOWNLOADING SPEED,Avg.Upload speed 130kbps on speedtest.net with Huwai E1731 modem on its True Unlimited GPRS Packs STV 96 Rs.

  • Kanaga Deepan N October 19, 2012 5:11 pm

    For a change operators should stop using Kbps and start using new units to describe speeds after FUP like 256kbph, 7.2MbpD, 100MbpM.

    Whereas,
    256kbph = 256 Kilo Bits Per Hour.. (32KB per Hour)
    7.2MbpD = 7.2 Mega Bits Per Day.. (Less then 1MB per day)
    100MbpM = 100 Mega Bits Per Month. (12.5MB per Month)

    I am sure, AirHELL will start implementing this idea in future and !dea and V0da will follow stupidly then…

  • ved October 19, 2012 4:57 pm

    why idea always follow Airtel plans as they dont have that aukaat like airtel ,no network of idea in village then also following Airtel path…Idea Service is also too bad

  • TELETALK October 19, 2012 4:52 pm

    we want good speed not large data… so my suggestion is if all companies give good speed + low data its really good idea for all customers

  • Arup October 19, 2012 4:39 pm

    Vodafone has already started this plan.They send me a sms.But they tell ‘reduced’ speed after 2 gb.

  • Pike October 19, 2012 4:38 pm

    Spiderman :
    u knw the issue happened with !dea ?
    I’ve activated their 8 Rs 3G pack (30 min one day validity) using USSD code and got the confirmation saying the same was activated. Then I connected net in PC(3G only mode was selected in fon). I got around 600 kbps speed & within 30 sec balance turned to 0. They took around 180 Rs !
    Idea First reply – I connected in 2G mode as per their application, that s why billed.
    Raised around 10 mails & 20 calls & Finally given two complaints in Pgportal & then got my money back from this operator after a lot of escalations !
    Now their reply -> The customer used net before activation of the plan !
    Thank God, they haven’t told 24 hours timeframe to activate 1 day validity plan !
    After this incident after activated same plan again got the confirmation that time itself & this time waited 15 min & started browsing. Same issue continues.. In noway they will accept its their technical glitch ! Got the refund for this also after complaining pgportal..
    If I activate again, I’m sure this issue will be exists

    The same issue is with airtel rs.8 3g pack. on a safer side, now i m using it only after 15-20 min of their confirmation msg.

  • nithin October 19, 2012 3:56 pm

    what a flop an idea sirji

  • shammi October 19, 2012 3:25 pm

    other counteries are going for 5G technology but in india operator are reducing 2G speed what a joke 40 kbps.

  • pradeep October 19, 2012 2:44 pm

    after 2gb it will give 40kbps.
    but it never cross 30kbps within 2gb.

  • Rajesh October 19, 2012 2:38 pm

    Usually speed will be 20-30kbps only.. bakwas idea sirji…..
    so 40kbps lock means 5-6kbps… please anybody give idea for this stupid company to remove the people who give this such a wonderful plan ideas….how trai is giving permission to lauch these type of plan boosters…
    lets give beautiful for idea customers ..shift to aircel who give unlimited with maximum of 128kbps..who knows whether we will get 128 or 80kbps..lets try for that na….
    Note: am not giving free ad for aircel

    Vodafone will also follow idea/Airtel
