Idea customers can check their USSD special offer by dialing *122#. According to a release by the company, Idea 4G network covers 53% of the total population in Kerala across all 14 districts. Recently the operator has announced plans to open 100 new company retail stores to increase 4G uptake.

Idea who is currently the market leader in the circle is facing stiff competition from its peers Vodafone and Airtel. Vodafone has also started its 3G service in the circle and is expanding its 4G network. Similarly Airtel has also expanded its 4G network to cover all major towns in Kerala. Through special offer, Idea is able to give custom tailored plans to its subscriber without the need of bringing down the tariff as such.

For heaven’s sake please do NOT opt for Idea’s corporate postpaid offer (Bangalore). Post 1 GB, speeds are reduced to 10 Kbps, (yeah 10) making it almost impossible to browse anything. Even texts on whatsapp don’t get sent that easily 😛
