    Default Idea New 3G plans fake commitment (CHENNAI), recommend not to go for it

    hi guys, i have been in search of a good 3G plan in Chennai. Gone through the idea advertisements on their website
    I went to Idea showroom (very less outlets in chennai) , they suggested me to take a 3G SIM in order to use with my HUWAEI E220 data card.
    I took a prepaid SIM with a TIME BASED plan (Rs 45/-) according to their website (Rs 10/- for 30 mns and Rs 45/- for 2-hours)
    The Idea Executive promised a speed of minimum 2.5 mbps
    Back home i checked the speed and it was very poor , Max - 512 Kbps (Attached the Screen shots)

    I Live in ALWARPET - BEHIND CHOLA SHERATON - HEART of the CITY

    IDEA DONT HAVE A 3G LICENSE IN CHENNAI, THEY ARE IN TIE UP WITH VODAFONE. SO ITS SHOWING THE VODAFONE NETWORK

    VODAFONE IS IN TIE UP WITH MTS NETWORK FOR THEIR 3G

    Apparently we are using MTS ..................LOL

    SCREENSHOT ATTACHED

    I have chekced the Idea speed both in Torrents and in speedtest.net , both gives the same result

    PS :- If you want to recharge Time based or Usage based Sachet packs as advertised in Idea websites , there is no option to do through local Corner Shops or any local sellers, neither Online
    You have to search for Idea Store near by you and recharge it from there.

    **In Short you are F&*%*ED UP

    1)I think vodafone has tied up with mts for evdo internet .
    2)You can recharge TIME BASED/USAGE BASED data plans online from sites like paytm, i did many times.
    3)I get 13mbps speed early in the morning and 5-6mbps in evening hours, it's 46rs recharge for AP circle.

    Already tried to recharge using PAYTM , says idea is not recognizing the amount and the money is back to PAYTM account.
    By the way i was speaking about Chennai, Not about Andhra.
    In Chennai its in roaming with VODAFONE

    If any one has idea from Chennai circle try recharging online for rs 8/- or rs 45 >> let me know the result

    Vodafone sells Vodafone Netcruise with MTS.
    But Vodafone 3G is different from Netcruise/MTS as that is CDMA.

    I think your speed is capped at your SIM, can you try to see MDMA's QoS?
