At the same time, the telco also unveiled Digital Idea – a suite of digital applications for the customers on-the-go. The three digital apps of Idea include – Idea Music Lounge, Idea Movie Club, and Idea Game Spark and these services will also be available for Idea customers in Assam.

Mr. Rajat Mukarji, Chief Corporate Affairs Officer, Idea Cellular said, “Idea has consistently invested in the expansion of the network to become a pan-India wireless broadband operator, readying our 200 million customers for the Digital era. Over the last one year, Idea has more than doubled its mobile broadband network on the 4G/3G platform, which now covers over 50 percent of India’s population.”

Currently, Idea has over 193 million subscribers under its belt and has already announced a merger with Vodafone India to form the largest telecom network in the country.

Mr. Pradip Chanda – Circle Head, Assam & NESA, Idea Cellular said, “We are happy to launch our world-class, high-speed 4G services for Idea customers in Assam catering to their ever-growing infotainment needs. The company now offers its 4G services in 9 towns of Assam including Guwahati, Bongaigaon, Nagaon, Tezpur, Jorhat and Lumding. Idea 4G services will be further expanded to cover 13 key towns in Assam by June end. 4G Services in North East Circle were launched in March 2016. We have now developed 40 percent of our total sites there to offer 4G network covering a population of 2.6 million in the North-East region.”

I am using idea 3g in delhi. Believe me it is the best 3g in delhi now in terms of offers, speed and coverage. They are using 900mhz to deliver the service which is the best as you can get indoor coverage too which is not possible in other operators. Also idea 3g users is less in delhi as compared to jio, airtel and vodafone so less load on network,hence better speed. Try at once for sure. Thanks
