Idea Cellular Withdraws Unlimited GPRS Packs

After Airtel and Vodafone cuts down monthly GPRS usage to 1GB from 2GB on Rs 98 pack, Idea cellular follows the same transition.

If you can remember, months ago we have reported that Idea started providing Unlimited GPRS packs in Kolkata circle.

Now Idea cellular withdraws its  all unlimited GPRS/ EDGE data plans in this circle and now offers only 300 MB data usage for 3 days at Rs.16 and 2GB for 30 days for Rs.98.

Idea Cellular is trying hard to grab market in Kolkata & West Bengal. They introduced Talktime packs similar to Uninor.  But it seems this modification or Revision of Unlimited GPRS packs comes to space more voice customers.

Idea cellular rationalized its GPRS Data packs like below wise

perfect man


Idea again revised GPRS packs in Haryana and reduces the usage in 2 packs:-

Rs.13 Plan which was giving 150MB usage for 3 days before is not providing 125MB only.

Rs.26 Plan which was giving 500MB usage for 7 days before is not providing 300MB only.

Idea lost around 2.75 lakh customers in Haryana in last 2-3 months after the price hike and in coming months too, we will see a downfall. This price ike and data reduction having a negative impact on company.

Who cares, I’m back to Reliance. 99 mein 6GB mukta ni. lol
