Now Idea starts offering 2GB 4G/2G data at Rs.93/28 days in Karnataka.

Pack itself means they dont have strong 4G presence, hence you will mostly latch onto 2G only

October 26, 2016 12:42 am 12:42 AM

4g/2g data…what happens when you latch to 3g n/w??? Complete nonsense.

October 26, 2016 6:25 pm 6:25 PM

I don’t remember exactly but I guess I couldn’t connect to 3G network with this pack.

October 26, 2016 6:43 am 6:43 AM

Boom… set it to 4g only mode..

Well its can be accepted on the basis of slow connectivity speed @Hyderabad.

@Avengers its slow in Hyderabad but fast in Secunderabad. I dont know how/why but on the same device, with the same speed test (OOKLA and JIO SPEED TEST) it shows 1-2 Mbps in Hyderabad (Gachibowli) and 35-37 Mbps in Secunderabad (Secunderabad area).

Today I ran NetVelocity data coverage test for 15 kms and result was like 0.00 maximum and minimum. Now I contacted customer care and they are saying that they are aware of this issue and working to fix it.

Outstanding performance. 24 million it’s not an easy issue whatever JIO on track

October 25, 2016 8:37 pm 8:37 PM

AVoId should try this at least
>50GB 4g/3g data for 1 month
>500 minutes to any operator with free roaming, and the minutes should be valid on roaming too
>3000 SMS per month local, national, roaming.
>Free subscription to wink movies music etc for that month.
Price 999
Can they at least offer this without lowering the 4g quality?
I think their speeds will crawl slower than Jio if people get this plan.
