Mumbai, May 26, 2012: Reliance Communications, India’s fully integrated telecommunications service provider and revenue market leader in mobile broadband with the largest Netconnect mobile broadband footprint in over 1,200 towns, today announced a set of initiatives to make 3G data usage affordable for all usage segments. Netconnect is the most recognized and preferred brand in the mobile broadband space in India.
The new Netconnect 3G data plans now available across all 13 Reliance 3G circles, including Metros (Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata) offer 1 GB 3G data for Rs. 250 per month and 2 GB of 3G data for Rs. 450 per month.
The My Best Plan is a highly customer friendly with its innovative and usage adaptive feature i.e. it generates the lowest bill for any data usage by the customer. The plan is ideal for a first time user who is not sure of his usage with the key benefit is “No bill shock” by billing upto 6 GB 3G data for Rs. 1250 and unlimited usage at no cost beyond 6 GB of usage.
3G Data Usage
Billed amounts (Rs)
Up to 1000 MB
Greater than 1000 MB, up to 6000 MB
250 + 20p/MB for usage above 1000 MB
Greater than 6000 MB (Speed throttled)
With this plan, if the customer uses 2.5GB, the customer gets billed for Rs 250 as rental and Rs 300 extra usage (at Rs 0.2/MB for 1.5 GB)—a total bill of Rs 550. On a 1GB plan from any other operator, this customer would have been billed for Rs 250 as rental and Rs 4,500 for extra usage (at Rs 3/MB for 1.5 GB) – a total bill of Rs. 4750. My Best plan will save the customer Rs 4,200 pm on just 2.5 GB usage and saving will be much higher with higher usage.
Reliance has the strongest unlimited 3G data plan portfolio starting at just Rs. 750 pm and is the only operator to offer unlimited 3G data on the prepaid platform.
