(Plans updated: 31-Jul-14)
Note: Airtel and Vodafone uses Idea 3G network for their 3G service in Kerala. Rates are similar to Idea 3G.
[Update 20-May-2012: We are removing Aircel plans due to the lack of clarity in their schemes]
With Idea also starting their 3G services in Kerala, all the four licensed 3G operators (BSNL, Tata Docomo,
Aircel and Idea) are now 3G enabled. So which one should you choose? Read on…
You can choose either the data-only plan or the combo plan, which combines data and voice. The former is just an add-on to an existing voice plan, and hence offers significant flexibility in 3G. The latter offers less flexibility, but is much more convenient to manage. One aspect of the 3G plans is that there is no significant difference between the pre-paid and post-paid plans.
Following is the comparison of data plans:
|3G Plans – Kerala|
|MRP||Data (MB)||MRP||Data (MB)||MRP||Data (MB)|
|1011||10000||646/745/848/949/1146||3/4/5/6/8GB@3G, unlimited @80kbps afterwards|
# Unlimited Whatsapp + 300MB Facebook.
*All plans have a validity of 1 month
*Extra data charge will be Rs.2/MB for BSNL, Rs.10/MB for Tata, and Rs.4/MB for Idea
If you have any experience to share regarding 3G services in Kerala, do comment below.[Update 27-Apr-2011: There is an interesting site – www.3gsimplified.com – which does a decent job in comparing your needs. The service is in beta now and compares only existing 3G services, but they have promised to bring in 2G plans also under its ambit]
