As India is moving towards digital revolution, the telecom companies are getting more competitive. After the launch of Reliance Jio 4G services back in September 2016, the whole telecom industry got disrupted. The share price of all the rivals of Jio fell for first few days, and it took quite good time for them to come up with competitive plans.
Telecom companies like Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and BSNL are working hard to make sure customers do not leave their network, and new customers keep adding up. In the recent weeks, Airtel has announced a bundle of extra data benefits for existing and new customers of 4G connections. Now Idea has come up with lucrative offers to keep customers intact.
In the statement issued by the company, the officials mentioned that the new and old customers will get the data benefit. The offer is available for both prepaid and postpaid customers under specific plans and packs. As per the reports the data will be 3G or 4G as per the availability of the services in any particular area. The price of the packs and plans may vary from circle to circle. Also, the data benefits will remain up to 2G while roaming if Idea 4G is not available in that particular area.
Plans for Postpaid customers
Idea postpaid customers who are using the Rs.499/- rental plan will get unlimited national and local calls. The incoming calls during roaming will remain free. In addition to that, the users will get 3GB free 4G data. If the customer is not using a 4G handset, then he will get unlimited calls with 1 GB 3G data.
The customers who are subscribed to Rs.999/- plan will get same calling facilities of Rs.499/- plan. The main difference is with the amount of data. If the user has 4G handset, he will get 8 GB 4G data else he will get 5GB of 3G data.
If the customer upgrades his phone from 3G to 4G or a new customer joins in with for 4G network, he will get additional 4 GB data in both the plans. That means the customer with Rs.499 plan will get 6 GB data. While the customers with the Rs.999 plan will get 11 GB data.
