Shriram Panhalkar :In Maharashtra Airtel to Airtel 1p/6sec and other 1p/2sec validity 6 months with 200 mb for 1 month @150 rs. Here Airtel gives good quality network with Idea, BSNL and Vodafone but offers like Tata DOCOMO & Uninor. Also for 3G Airtel gives 60 hr unlimited with 30days validity@124 rs. We can download upto 1gb/hr with 7.2mbps speed. That means in 60gb in 60 hrs(2rs/gb). Aisa offer dekha hai kya kaha pe!

Rajesh Gupta :
Idea has developed this sucking habit of increasing tariff without informing customers. It looks as if Idea represents the government of India in price hikes.
Idea poor services and poor network now supported by poor tariffs.
