Earlier, Idea had a pack priced at Rs. 1250 offering 10GB Data for 30 days which is now revised and offers 4GB Data only for 90 days.

On a whole, now Idea 3G don’t have a monthly pack offering more than 6GB Data. The 6GB Data pack is available for Rs. 950 (same as earlier) with a validity of 30 days. So for users, who have High Usage, Idea have nothing to offer.
