NEW DELHI: It seems that the telecom data war is not going to end anytime soon. Now Idea Cellular has come up with a new plan to counter the plan offered by Reliance Jio.
Ideal Cellular has rolled out a plan of Rs 499, under which it is offering 164GB 4G/ 3G/ 2G data with the validity of 82 days. This new plan is only available for prepaid subscribers of Idea Cellular. Apart from data, Idea users will also be able to make unlimited local and STD calls and send 100 SMS per day as part of the plan.
Under the Rs 499 plan, Idea Cellular is giving 2GB data per day. In case users exhaust the daily limit then the service provider will charge 4 paise per 10KB. Along with this, there is also a catch to the unlimited part of the plan. The telco has set the daily FUP limit of 250 minutes for calling and 1,000 minutes for seven days. In case a user exhausts this limit then they will be charged at 1 paisa per second.
Recently, Idea Cellular rolled out a offer for the OnePlus 6 users. The telco said that its postpaid users will get cashback of Rs 2,000. The company will be giving a discount of Rs 100 to the postpaid users per month for 20 billing cycles. Along with this, users will get 10GB data per month for the period of 20 months under the Nirvana Rs 499 plan.
