The free data will be credited to a user’s account within minutes after dialling the above-mentioned USSD.

Idea Cellular Launches 4G in Kolkata in ICR With Vodafone

As you might be aware of by now, UK-based Vodafone and Idea Cellular together formed Vodafone Idea Limited. And right after the completion of the merger, customers of Idea Cellular will now be able to use 4G on ICR on Vodafone. Earlier, Idea Cellular offered 2G and 3G circles in Kolkata.

Idea users in Kolkata will now experience high-speed internet on 4G and enjoy seamless experience on digital Idea apps, during the Pujo celebration, with devotional songs and videos on Idea Music, Idea Movies & TV. Gaming enthusiasts can play a host of exciting games on Idea Games app, said the company in a press statement.

Mr Shivan Bhargava, Circle Head – Kolkata and Rest of Bengal, Vodafone Idea Ltd. said, “We are delighted to extend our world-class 4G services to over 3.1 million Idea customers in Kolkata, fulfilling their ever-increasing infotainment needs with a Free 10 GB Data offer, during the auspicious occasion of Durgo Pujo. Additionally, with nearly 1200 sites on ICR in Rest of West Bengal circle, Idea users in the state will enjoy the unmatched 4G coverage and seamless data experience.”

Idea Users Should Upgrade to a 4G SIM Card

The telco also stated that it’s offering complimentary 4G SIM card upgrade for its customers in Kolkata. All customers can avail a complimentary 4G SIM upgrade from the company’s showrooms and leading retail outlets across the metro city. Likewise, Idea is also expected to launch 4G services in New Delhi very soon.
