Reliance Mobile launches Double Data packs for prepaid customers

By July 28th, 2016 AT 8:50 AM

In a recent move, Reliance Communication has now launched ‘Double Data’ for their prepaid customers across Andhra Pradesh & Telangana. Though unlike other operators like Airtel or Vodafone; RCom isn’t offering ‘Double Data’ on 3G recharges, instead they are offering ‘Double Data’ on few 2G packs.


Reliance Mobile customers in the circle can recharge with Rs 199 & Rs 43 2G data packs after which they would receive 100% more data for night usage. With the recharge of Rs 199, one would get 3 GB of data for 28 days while on Rs 43, the company is offering 750 MB data with a validity of one week. For more details, you can check the chart embedded below.

Though the offer isn’t attractive when other operators like Bharti Airtel are offering 2 GB 3G/4G data packs at Rs 199 to Rs 250. On the other hand, Idea Cellular through is offering double data to most of the users on 4G usage. So RCom’s pricing wouldn’t help the operator much in getting customers. According to latest subscription data shared by sector regulator TRAI; Rcom is constantly losing its subscribers in the circle to biggies like Airtel or Idea who are providing 4G network.

However, we’re expecting that RCom would reduce their data tariff after Jio reveals their tariff. Also as Rcom would provide 4G through Jio’s network; so we can expect a war between the telcos soon in a market like Andhra Pradesh & Telangana where Airtel & Idea is ruling because of strong data presence through 3G & 4G networks.

Offtopic: When I’m on Rcom 4G network Google maps or any other location app shows my location somewhere in Assam (1700km away from my actual location.
With other operators it works fine.
High accuracy mode is ON.

If you’re getting good GPS signals, nothing can be more accurate than that. High accuracy mode doesn’t work that well in India. Reliance 4G is a new network, so Google right now might not be having the proper or correct locations of their towers in the database. That’s why wrong location is being shown for you. Best to keep high accuracy mode off most of the time as it consumes more battery too.

Still an Assam location being shown is really weird. :/
