3G Tariff Plans in Kerala (updated 31/07/14)

Kerala 3G plans
(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
BSNL Tata DoCoMo Idea
MRP Data (MB) MRP Data (MB) MRP Data (MB)
91 300 107 300
155 1000 128 750 199 600

*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 – – 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]

    I have h+ for BSNL and Idea in my area. Great speed by both networks.

    Anybody else facing issues with IDEA data connection at Technopark lately? Unable to access internet most of the time.
    Might get a new 4G connection (Airtel/Reliance) after Reliance starts their operation in December. Does anybody know how good is Airtel 4G? I am mostly looking for a fast & affordable data connection in Trivandrum ..
