Idea Cellular Hikes Unlimited GPRS Internet Tariff

The guys at Idea are the best ones doing fraud legally.I have been mentioning this fact in my previous posts too.Unlimited Internet access via GPRS and EDGE costed Rs 9 per day on your mobiles for some time.Now they have hiked it to 25 Rs.Airtel has also hiked the charge.It is interesting to note that this is a time when BSNL has started giving CDMA 1X service at 250 Rs per month.

Rs 9 -------> Rs 25

I do not justify this hike blaming inflation.Moreover the service sucks.It get disconnected now and again.To deactivate you need to call the customer care number which is always busy.This time i tried calling continuously for 2 hours.At last got connected and deactivated the plan.The call center guy told me that existing customers can still use the service at Rs 9 for six months after activation as a token from Idea.

The customer care of idea sucks.It is always busy.Is this the way to run a business that has value?I had invested some money in idea stocks through their IPO.It is good that i sold it.Because why should we invest in a company which treats the customers as fools and does fraud offers.
