Here’s our list of various 3G data tariffs offered by major telecom providers in India for April 2013. These are prepaid tariffs only (except where mentioned). The tables give a fair idea of the tariffs and can be used for the comparison among carriers, however, the rates vary significantly from region to region and it is best that your check the operator’s webpage for your area for the exact amount (it should be close to these values). As always, we advise you to pick a plan that suits your needs instead of going blindly for the cheapest one. Also, make sure that your area is covered by 3G on whichever carrier you choose, or else you’ll be stuck with 2G speeds, which aren’t very fabulous as you might already know.
* represents night time usage. This data can be consumed between 11.00pm and 7.00 am. Once it is used, usage is deducted from the normal data remaining in the pack. Say on the Rs 599 pack you use up all your 4GB data during night hours, the data will be deducted from the 3GB pool, the next time you use the internet during the night hours.
Speed after given usage in unlimited plans is 80kbps.
Please note that unlike other carriers, Idea’s tariffs vary significantly from circle to circle and it is best that you check their official website for the exact pricing.
The speeds in unlimited plans after fair usage is again capped at 80 kbps.
