Idea Rs.349 postpaid plan with unlimited local std calls & 1GB data

Idea has updated it’s ultimate plan offers with additional data for 12 months. Ultimate plans were launched in start of 2017 with unlimited calls but very small amount of data. A half hearted attempt by Idea Cellular to take on Jio.

However now they are updating it for better though still less generous than Jio plans. 

Rs.349 Ultimate plan now offers

  • Unlimited local+std calls
  • Free incoming while roaming nationally
  • 1GB data data post which 2p/41kb
  • For 4G handset users 4 GB data/month till next 12 months
  • For new or MNP customer with 4G handset additional 500MB data per month

So one gets 5.5GB data with unlimited local + std + incoming roaming calls in this ultimate 349 plan.

No free sms is included with sms rate of local/std/isd – Rs.1/1.5/5 respectively.

Note: Maharastra users get 3000 free sms but 500MB + 4GB offer is missing.

While national roaming 80p /min for local 1.15/min for std calls and sms charge of 25p/38p/Rs.5 for local/national/isd.

As this is postpaid so one needs to pay addtional 15% tax on Rs.349. So final bill for Rs.349 plan comes out to Rs.401.35.

Now compare it to Idea prepaid plan of Rs.346/347/348 (vary with states) one get:

  • 1GB per day data for 4G handset users = to 30GB – in comparison to 5.5GB of postpaid
  • Unlimited free std+local calls+ free incoming roaming calls – same as postpaid
  • Rs.349 no additional tax – Rs.401.35 in postpaid
