IDEA 3G Speed Test

We managed to get hold of a IDEA 3G connection as the operator has silently rolled out 3G services in Chennai and Tamil Nadu. As you all might know , IDEA does not have a license in this circle and has inked a deal with Vodafone  to offer 3G services here. Our test device was the ultra fast HTC Flyer which supports HSPA networks upto 14.4 Mbps.  The moment we enabled 3G on the Flyer , we were latched on to the Vodafone network(After activation of course). Watch the video below for the impressive speeds .
We managed to clock over 4.5 Mbps in terms of download speeds and over 1Mbps in terms of upload speeds.  It is clearly Vodafone’s network in action.


We did a recharge for Rs.45 which gives 30 mins of 3G usage.You can check out the detailed tariffs here

What an Idea Sirji ! (to tie up with Vodafone )
