Airtel returned Jio’s fire with their free 3GB data/month offer. Vodafone then came up with their ‘Happy Hour’ offer and then it was Idea’s turn to come up with a equally good idea. As a result, the network operator has announced an increase in data usage limit across its unlimited calling plans and will offer 3 GB additional data for customers who upgrade to new 4G handsets. Here’s the deal.

For Prepaid Customers:

Existing prepaid 4G handset customers will get 1 GB free data on a Rs. 348 recharge pack, along with unlimited voice calling and SMS. Those who recharge with this pack on a new 4G handset, will get additional 3 GB data. The benefit is valid for 28 days and can be availed for a maximum of 13 recharges in 365 days.

For Postpaid Customers:

Postpaid Idea customers subscribing to a Rs. 499 plan will get unlimited local, national and incoming roaming calls with 3 GB of free data on 4G handsets. Non-4G handset users will get unlimited calling benefits and 1 GB of free mobile data. Postpaid customers with a Rs. 999 monthly rental plan will get all benefits of the Rs. 499 plan along with free calls during roaming, 8GB of mobile broadband on 4G Handsets and 5GB Data on non 4G handsets. The extra 3GB free data for new 4G handset customers will make it 6 GB and 11 GB free data each month, on the Rs. 499 and Rs. 999 plans. Idea will provide additional 3GB data on these rental plans, till December 31, 2017.
