Seems like Vodafone really didn’t change the tariff rates tremendously, but has simply changed some packs with slightly more data per month and with more validity ofcourse. The two main operators who have changed their tariff plans to very reasonable are Aircel and Reliance Communications. Aircel has offered unlimited 3G plans for just Rs 8 per month with 50MB 3G speeds for a day. While the costliest plan is for Rs 997 for 10GB data download with 30days validity.
Apart from tall these things, the user should keep one thing in mind, after the limited 3G broadband Internet, the 3G speed will be degraded to 128bkbps in Airtel and 64kpbs in other operators. So, be wise in using your 3G data and make sure you confirm the cut off speed in 3G after the limited data is consumed totally.
