Idea to launch its 3G services in Delhi Using its Own Network By Next Year

Idea cellular will be launching its 3G services in New Delhi next year . It will be using its own network to do so which will help it keep a tab on the costs. It will also cut down its 3G data rates in order to attract more customers to take the fight on to the likes of Vodafone and Airtel.


The 900 MHz spectrum that it won back in February this year during the auctions will be used for it and Idea expects that the roll out will begin in December. It paid Rs 3704.8 crores for the same so it will be aiming to make the most of it.

Till now, Idea subscribers were using 3G in Delhi courtesy of its intra-circle pact with Airtel and Vodafone. Offering services through its own network will give the operator a wider degree of control over the telecom services it will be offering.

Expansion of circles and cutting down of tariffs will surely help Idea gain a bigger share of the market.

Idea is became one of the poor service provider in TamilNadu circle. As they don’t undertake any complaint, due to they don’t know what to do? Customer Care agents are not trained. I think Always AirTel Mobile Services are best & I shall only support airtel.


Actually, there are very few phones from Indian mobile companies which support 3G over 900 Mhz band. LAVA has no phone that supports this band as shown in GSMArena. Micromax has got 7 phones currently that supports 3G over this band and they are: Canvas Knight, A100, A90S, A90, A56, A52 and A60. XOLO has 10 phones currently which support this band and they are: Q1010i, Q1010, Q1000, Q800, Q800 X-Edition, Q3000, Xolo Play, X1000, X910 and X500. No idea about Karbonn sirji.
