Reliance slashes 3G rates by over 50%
If you are a Reliance user, you can now enjoy 3G rates for the rates of 2G. Plans start from as cheap as Rs123 for a 1GB 3G pack from the service provider.
Reliance Communications announced today a major slash in their 3G rates for all its users in the country. The slash, which is over 50%, will now offer 3G packs for rates comparable to other service provider’s 2G plans. Rates have been revised as low as Rs123 for the 1GB pack, Rs246 for the 2GB plan and Rs492 for 3GB of 3G data. Existing 2G users of the service provider will be automatically upgraded to 3G if their plan falls under any of these price brackets.

The rates have been slashed as Reliance looks to increase their market share in the 3G circle. In the last quarter, there were 7.2 million Reliance 3G users and they expect it to grow by as much as 40 million users by 2015. For users who are porting to Reliance from other network service providers, a data plan of 1GB will be provided free for a period of two months.
