Well, when the competition gets intensify you tend to follow what your competitor is doing. Same to be said about the current Indian telecom market. After Airtel and Reliance Jio revised and announced new affordable plans under the Rs 199 price range, the baton is now in the hands of Idea Cellular. The telco has essentially revised its Rs 198 unlimited pack and made it open market.
Idea Cellular revised Rs 198 unlimited pack for its prepaid subscribers now offer 1GB of data benefits per day. Earlier the same pack only offered 1GB of data for the entire month. The validity of the pack remains the same at 28 days.
In addition to the new data usage benefits, the Rs 198 unlimited pack also offers unlimited voice calling to any network and anywhere in India. Even while you’re on national roaming, you can make unlimited phone calls. However, Idea has certain limits on the unlimited voice calls. You could only call 100 unique callers in a week or maximum 250 minutes in a day or 1000 minutes in a week. Anything above this limit will cost your extra money.
