Idea also reduced Voice tariff for Local and STD calls in Delhi circle. Now at RC33 you’ll get local calls 30p/min with 5Rs TT and at RC32 you’ll get STD calls at 30p/min with 5Rs TT. This is number specific schemes but may be applicable for all after sometime.. Now the real tariff war has start and its interesting to see that how big two telcos (Airtel and Vodafone) react after this. Remember, Airtel already offering Unlimited Local and STD tariffs in all circles but Vodafone not…

Idea is totally pathetic here in karnal and Haryana, it is cheap and has a good plans but service is not good. I have tried their 4G it went to 34 mbps in day time. I have been waiting for Vodafone 4G

The range is also limited to the places, it does not cover the whole city with the 3G, what they would do with the 4G.
