Reliance Communications (RCom) has reduced the 3G rates by half for both the pre-paid and post-paid customers. Now 1GB of 3G data costs Rs. 123. The 2GB and 4GB 3G packs now cost Rs 246 and Rs 492 respectively. All these come with 30 days validity. The new rates are applicable in all the 13 circles across India. Recently Vodafone, Airtel, Idea and Videocon reduced 2G data rates.
Regarding the new data rates Rcom President and CEO for Wireless, Gurdeep Singh, said
Only one-fourth of people who own 3G phones truly use for 3G services. There is huge barrier to affordability. We are cutting the 3G prices down to the 2G data rates. Fundamentally, it is Rs 123 to a GB of 3G which is equivalent to 2G price.
Customers can Call 18001003333 or SMS ACT < G123 > to 53739 to activate 3G on Reliance. To activate particular packs you can recharge with the desire amount. These 3G charges are not applicable for 3G dongles. Data Charges beyond free usage is 10p/10KB.
