To promote upcoming 4G services in Himachal Pradesh, Idea Cellular has started offering free 4G data to customers in that region who will pre-book a 4G SIM.
According to latest information, the company is offering 1 GB of 4G data for 4G SIM booking in HP circle which hints the launch isn't far away. To get the free data benefits, Idea Customers need to send a SMS 'BOOK4G' to 12345 (toll free) from 4G supported devices. The data will be offered to the user after the 4G service launch.
Idea Cellular, the third largest operator which offers 4G services in 10 circles has partnered with Ericsson for 4G roll out in the region. However, as the company has less spectrum in 1800 Mhz block, the 4G network would be Narrow Band LTE based which can offer 10-20 Mbps of speed.
While Jio is offering unlimited 4G data (4GB/day) and calling benefits to its new users as part of welcome offer to poach customers from rival networks, it would be tough for the Aditya Birla telco to attract customers on its 4G network.
