Idea going so low.. I was thinking to port out from idea, generated UPC code.. The next day the Sim was not working. My Sim was blocked.. Now I have to submit my proofs again to get the same number & pay rs 100 for activation.. Idea’s market share is going down, I think this was the best way they could loot their customers and stop them from choosing other network.

Idea holds close to 33% market share in Mah. & Goa circle and hence has a very big responsibility to protect it’s turf from Jio and others. Idea is certainly doing a fabulous job in that direction. It already had 3G on 2100 MHz spectrum. Now they have added 4G on 1800 MHz spectrum and also 3G on 900 MHz spectrum in some important cities. Idea’s 3G/4G combined coverage will be a close match to Jio’s triple-band 4G network. Airtel & Vodafone and not even close to these two players in Mah. & Goa circle.
