In Kolktata, neither customer care not the Idea store people could give any information on this new data rates.How can the company introduce something new without properly training the frontline staff who will face the customer queries? I m more keen to know as to how will postpaid customers avail these data benefits with their existing plans.Does anyone have any information on this?
