Idea Cellular Introduces True Unlimited GPRS PacksYeah you have read absolutely right, no APRIL FOOL’s DAY Joke in advance.

Idea cellular recently removed all types FUP or data capping from its Rs.5, Rs.16 and Rs.98 GPRS Packs for the prepaid customer of Kolkata and West Bengal circle.

Formerly they provided 30 MB, 500 MB and 6 GB inter browsing usage in Rs.5, Rs.16 and Rs.98 GPRS pack respectively.

Beyond free subscribers would have been charged as per base rate (currently 2p/KB).But now there is no data capping so that customer can browse internet in their mobile as well as in Laptop/PC by using mobile as modem without any worry or shocking balance deduction.

DETAILS AT A GLANCE:

MRP PREVIOUS BENEFIT CURRENT OFFERING VALIDITY
Rs.5 20MB Browsing Unlimited browsing Till Midnight[Auto Renewal Basis]
Rs.16 500MB Browsing Unlimited browsing 3  Days
Rs.98 6 GB Browsing Unlimited browsing 30 Days

For activation and more details please call Idea Customer Care @12345

Rs.16 and Rs.98 recharge coupons are only available only through easy recharge option from any idea retailer as quoted from one Idea cellular CC executive. To activate Rs.5 (Auto Renewal Basis) GPRS pack customer have to dial *567*910# from their mobile. It will take maximum 2 Hours to be activated (as per customer care it will be activated within 10Minutes).

No doubt its a good approach from Idea cellular keeping in mind about the customer privileges which is truly rare event. Aircel is still providing unlimited internet browsing through their Rs.14, Rs 27 and Rs.98 RCV in Kolkata and West Bengal circle.

Though BSNL withdrawn its unlimited 2G & 3G data packs to keep their network non-congested. As 5th largest player of Indian mobile market this move by Idea certainly kickstarts a tariff war in data market. Let’s wait and watch for other operators about their next step in GPRS segment!
