Reliance reduces 3G data offering for Rs.177 pack in Delhi circle, now offers only 600MB

By March 5th, 2015 AT 1:07 PM

Reliance communications is popular among mobile data subscribers who need high speed Data at low tariff. Rcom has 3G spectrum in 13 circles and ICRA with Aircel in another 5 circles. It gained a major share of the 3G market by offering 3G data at 2G rates for smartphones. Though the quality of 3G network of Rcom is inferior to that of Airtel, Vodafone and Idea in most circles, they still continue to hold a major portion of the data market due to its pricing strategy. But with its latest move Rcom seems to be losing this advantage as well, it has reduced the bundled data in the popular Rs.177 pack in Delhi circle which earlier offered 1GB data now offers only 600MB which implies a 40% reduction. Reliance did not send out any prior intimation of this change to the existing users of this pack to warn them before the next recharge date.

ICR with Aircel 3G in Tamilnadu?. Not at all.

Anyway another incomplete information by TT.

Is facebook* and whatsapp# voice calling included in the pack?. If yes, then it is useful even after increasing the price.
I think it is included. Thats why it has reduced the data limit. Lol.

* means – already launched
# means – what will happen if whatsapp introduces voice calling (just in case) in during the validity of the subscribed pack?.

Who wants Reliance’s WORST PATCHY 3G in Delhi-NCR when Airtel giving 1+1GB 3G @255 as Holi promotional offer(double data on 4th and 5th March). Although Airtel is expensive but its coverage is far better than Reliance and everytime Airtel has some offers, last month they were giving 1 Gb [email protected], before that 1+0.5GB 3G on 255 recharge. Forget 3G, Reliance doesn’t has even good 2G coverage in Delhi, many times it lathes on Aircel network for coverage in home circle.


In TN airtel gives 1gb 3g for 198…all the operates offers at this similar rate…but aircel gives 1.5 GB 3g for 198 and 2gb 3g for 255 which is cheaper than other operaters and the speed is also good, getting 300 to 500KB downloading speed…


They are giving me 1 GB 3G @ 149, L+STD @ 30p/min @ Rs 14.
That is sone pe suhaga!
