Comparison: Airtel Vs. Idea Unlimited 3G plans, Which is the Best ?

By November 19th, 2014 AT 7:41 PM

The mobile tariffs are currently seeing an upward trend in the country and its not just Airtel who have revised their plans. Idea Cellular which is one of the most prominent Telecom operator in the country has also hiked their 3G tariffs. Idea is surprisingly costlier as it offers only 20-40Kbps speed after FUP and this is nothing short of a joke. Airtel has been a little generous though as it is offering unlimited at speeds of 80Kbps.


If we take into account the speed after all the losses than it will come to a mere 10Kbps in Airtel and a shockingly low 5Kbps in Idea. Check out the table we have prepared which will give you better insight on the unlimited 3G plans of Airtel in comparison with the ones offered by Idea.
