Reliance Mobile slashes benefits on data packs in the Kolkata circle

By September 17th, 2015 AT 6:39 PM

In a recent move, Reliance Mobile has reduced the data benefits on some recharge denominations in the Kolkata circle. A few days back, Aircel, which is one of the cheapest data operator, hiked their data rates in the region.

Reliance Mobile has reduced data benefits in the mid-range data packs in both 2G & 3G segments. They have even stopped providing unlimited Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp facility in some data packs. Reliance data packs were quite popular due to the free unlimited social data that was on the offering. As a result, after the latest revision, customers of Reliance Mobile have to spend more for data. Browsing those sites or using those apps will be charged extra or charged from activated data packs.

In the 3G segment, the price of the Rs. 95 data pack, which used to offer 1GB 3G data for 10 Days, has now been revised to offer 750 MB data for 7 days. Also, unlimited Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp facility has been withdrawn from the pack. Validity of the Rs. 99 3G data pack has been reduced to 14 days from 21 days, while the data benefits have remained unchanged with 650 MB 3G data. Validity of the popular Rs. 177 pack has been reduced to 2 Days, and going forward, the data pack will provide 1GB of 3G data for 26 days instead of 28 days earlier.

Reliance has hiked the data rates even though their network has degraded a lot in the 2G as well as the 3G segments. Calls made from 2G are now unclear, and the network has become unstable in the recent days. Network strength fluctuates a lot, and their 3G speeds have became very slow. Most of the times, web browsing isn’t possible during day hours as a lot of people people are on same cell sites.

From personal experiences, I can say that there are problems, but browsing in night is smooth without any problem. While Airtel, Vodafone, and Aircel have been upgrading their 3G cell sites, they haven’t shared anything about their network expansion. Even the calls that are made to customer care numbers don’t connect instantly, and the waiting time is quite long. Due to these reasons, many customers like me have already left the network. Please share your views via comments.

Please check with customer care service before recharging with the denominations mentioned above.
