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.
