Ahead of announcing their own 3G network in Kolkata, Idea Cellular has announced new data packs for prepaid users in the region. We had earlier reported, Idea 3G signal is live in Kolkata. However, Idea has restricted users to connect into the network. Now, Idea has come up with cheaper rates for 3G data users while the rates for 2G packs remain unchanged. In a bid to drive data usage, Idea launched offers for both new and existing customers.

While the popular 3G pack of 123 wouldn’t offer more data to new users, but the existing users might get 1GB of data for 28 days. New customers on Idea network who haven’t completed 90 days would get 500MB of 3G data free for 12 days.

Yeah bro, idea has become costly due to jio-fobia and “maha-gathbandhan” of Rcom+Aircel+MtS!!

3G cost in Wb circle has become sky high..since last month. 2G pack has been increased to INR 30-40 on an average.
