Maharashtra mobile subscribers feel the pinch as Airtel and Idea hike tariffs

After Vodafone’s data tariff hikes in Maharashtra circle, Airtel and Idea have also hiked data tariffs in the region.

Incumbent operators Airtel, Vodafone and Idea dominate in Maharashtra. So the recent hike will have a huge impact on those loyal customers who use these networks.
The three networks have a dominant control over the market in the region and cheaper operators like Aircel and Reliance do not provide 3G services. Hence these frequent data tariff hikes are bleeding the customers’ pockets.
In the recent hike, Airtel has increased cost for 3G packs, and benefits in 2G packs have been drastically reduced. Airtel has also introduced new packs with higher denominations.
Earlier, 1 GB 3G cost Rs 251 but now customers have to recharge with Rs 298 to get the same benefits. Other 2 GB and 3 GB packs will cost more. They have also removed some cheaper 2G Data packs and now 1 GB 2G will cost Rs 199.
