Idea Cellular 2G, 3G, and 4G Data Recharge to Cost Same
The country’s third-largest telecom service provider, Idea Cellular, announced that there would be no differential pricing for its data recharges on Idea 2G, 3G and 4G network. The telecom company is working on the plans and it will be rolled out PAN-India by the end of March.
Idea Cellular’s Seamless Coverage:
Addressing the new pricing plans, Mr Sashi Shankar, Chief Marketing Officer, Idea Cellular Ltd, said, “Idea’s simplified data pricing will ensure data recharges across all technologies are available at the same price point. The customer can choose the recharge price basis usage and volume available in the pack, without having to worry about the platform the customer’s device is logged in.”
He further added, “As Idea’s Pan India Broadband coverage continues to expand and reduces the gap with existing 2G coverage which covers 4 lakh towns & villages, customers can now seamlessly migrate services between technology & platform without worrying about differential costs. We believe that our simplified plans will enable consumers to enjoy the benefits of the high-speed Internet on smartphones and be a part of the Digital India revolution.”
Unified Data Recharge – 2G/3G/4G:
With this rollout, Idea Cellular will make a unified pricing for all its product categories including sachets, freedom packs etc. Though this is not a one-time rollout, the company has been making efforts relentlessly to exhilarate its subscribers in a phased manner.
With this new unified data recharge, the Idea subscriber can recharge 2G or 3G pack of 1GB data and can use the same in 2G/3G/4G handset without worrying about the network. However, please do note that this unified data recharge facility is available only on 1GB and above data packs. If you are looking at smaller or chota packs, then you need to browse for regular packs separately.
Hopefully, by the end of this March, Idea Cellular would roll out unified data recharge plans. Moreover, the mega-merger with Vodafone will also materialise by then.
