Idea Revises Rs 15 Data Pack in Kerala

Idea Revises Rs 15 Data Pack in KeralaFollowing the 3G tariff cut, Idea Cellular has started “Fuel price up 70% and 3G price down 70%” campaign, but it seems on the other side coin, it is written ‘2G data price also up’.

Idea started sending SMS to its subscribers that benefits of Rs 15 2G data recharge via flexi/USSD will be changed to 250 MB, valid for 2 days w.e.f June 18th.

As of now you can get old benefit of 500MB for 3 days in case you get the paper vouchers of Rs 15 data pack.

Earlier Airtel, Vodafone and Idea cuts 30-day pack benefit from 2GB to 1GB, and recently Tata Docomo slightly hiked pack cost following service tax revision.

It has been seen that operators in order to push 3G adoption, hiking the 2G pricing, so that the price barrier between 2G and 3G can be close.

All other operators including idea uses VSNL for international connectivity. So… Read more »

Now a days Tata Docomo’s 2G speed is back on track with 20-25kB/s at my place but don’t know until when it will continue. But one operator in my town which is consistent in performance since they started is Aircel. They have lowest 2G ping at 180-220ms and speed 30-45kB/s. They provide 3GB in 98 and truly unlimited plan cost 251 for 90 days with 150 A2A Free calls. So it’s like truly unlimited at nearly 83/month with great speed. But problem is Aircel is not present everywhere and they are using Tata’s network in most parts of Haryana and… Read more »

@Tharun George You can’t say operators increased data in packs again due to MNP. Look MNP was started in Haryana in Oct-Nov, 2010 and then on Pan-India basis in January, 2011. It was Tata Docomo who took the centre stage by bringing 2GB for as low as Rs.48 in Feb, 2010 (28 months ago) and then Aircel who brought truly unlimited plans in all their packs. When GPRS charges came down, there was no MNP. So, other operators like Airtel-Idea-Vodafone had to follow the suit in order to not to lose customers. But after MNP launch when they saw that… Read more »
