Idea Cellular To Offer Opera Web Pass – Time-Based Data Packs Starts from Rs.7

Idea Cellular and Opera Software today announced the launch of Idea Web Pass, which allows users to enjoy customized mobile internet packages when using the Opera Mini web browser.


Idea Cellular will be second mobile service provider in India offering Opera Web Pass services as earlier Vodafone India announced the same for its customers.

Now Idea subscribers just need to start the Opera Mini web browser on their mobile phones, click “Idea Web Pass” on the Speed Dial page and choose from a list of web pass subscriptions. This allows Idea mobile customers to choose from a range of internet packages to suit their personal internet-access needs.

Idea Web Pass packages include the following:

  • Daily Internet Pass  with 30MB data usage  for Rs 8
  • Weekly Facebook Pass with 70MB data usage for Rs 7
  • Weekly Internet Pass with 125MB data usage for Rs 30

All Idea users can subscribe to these offers for their daily Internet dose. They can download Opera Mini from any of the popular app stores or by visiting from their mobile devices. Once Opera Mini is installed, they just need to click the “Idea Web Pass” Speed Dial entry to select the data package that’s right for them.

    of this on telecomtalk.

  • Darshan February 26, 2014 7:17 pm

    I got today message today from idea that the data packs which you have/will subscribe can be used only on IDEA networks…
    Its clearly states that if i am idea maharashtra customer & if i use 3g in mumbai where it dont have license will be charged extra on Airtel network.. .

    • SS February 26, 2014 9:07 pm

      It states that only for 2G networks. I have tested my Idea UP E 3G SIM on Vodafone Delhi network and still no costs to incur. Used Airtel 3G delhi SIM on Idea 3G UP E network.

      Why don’t you just check instead of making assumptions. There are lots of things written which aren’t applicable practically. Focus on Practical Experiences.

      • Darshan February 27, 2014 11:35 am

        Yaa tried…sry there is no extra charge…

  • karandeep singh February 26, 2014 6:57 pm

  • sand February 26, 2014 3:13 pm

    What i dont understand is that instead of focussing their efforts on how to fool customers why cant these AVOID group morons rather focus on bringing better 3G data usage plans?

  • nandlal February 26, 2014 2:15 pm

    All bullshit plans i checked it. It is Rs.8 for 30MB for 1day, Rs. for 125MB for 7days. They think we are fools and can be cheated with no effort.

    • nandlal February 26, 2014 5:07 pm
