    Default Idea 3G WiFi Tariff Plans

    As you may know from the thread Idea Smart 3G WiFi data card, that Idea now provides a dongle which also acts as a WiFi hotspot. These WiFi dongles are becoming popular with Tata Docomo first launching it, then MTS, Airtel and now Idea.

    Here is a look at some of the Idea Smart 3G WiFi tariff plans.

    Postpaid Plans



    Prepaid Plans



    These plans are cheaper than MTS which so far is supposed to be the service provider with the best tariff plans. The only thing that needs to be looked into is that there is good coverage of Idea in your area before getting the connection.

    These plans are good, but the only problem with Idea is that it doesn't provide good coverage. I think so far this is the cheapest 3G dongle tariff plan.

    well as Idea is providing cheaper data plans which is effecting it's quality. Earlier also it was providing average speed, however it was good in a few particular places, but the majority says that Idea network coverage is not good. And now the cheaper plans causing the speed and stability issues.

    Yes, these are the best plans I have ever seen recently. But unfortunately Idea has a very low coverage in our area. I think Idea got a very poor coverage in rural areas, especially in remote places. I would have opted those plans, but without proper coverage there is no use of that.

    Now I use Idea unlimited monthly plan and I am really suffering due to bad network. However, I am planning to switch over to BSNL broadband and that is the only solution. I don't see Idea doing anything to improve coverage in our area in near future.

    Absolutely, there is no use of a plan when there is no proper coverage. It will only be a headache then. When I approached Idea with this issue what they said is that the area doesn't hold that much of potential in terms of customers. I tried to convince them that almost all the operators are not having good coverage in that area. There is high chance of a conversion to Idea if it can guarantee a good coverage. But God knows what are their plans.

    I think most of these mobile companies are reluctant towards rural areas because of low potential, high cost of infrastructure and low RoI.
