Idea Cellular has launched a new roaming offering with rates that are on par with home calling rates, without additional roaming charges.
Idea's new value vouchers priced between Rs 230-240 and Rs 35-40 (varying from circle to circle) offer the same rates the user pays in home circle for local, STD, ISD calling and SMS. Further, Idea Cellular has reduced incoming roaming charges to 75 paise per minute for users who avail Rs 35-40 voucher, while incoming is free for those who avail Rs 230-240 voucher.
Idea users who recharge with the new vouchers will be able to enjoy the roaming benefits for six months from the date of recharge.
''Indians are travelling across the country like never before, for work or leisure. Idea's pan-India network will now allow over 123 million Idea users to roam freely across the country, without worrying about additional roaming charges,'' Idea Cellular Chief Marketing Officer Sashi Shankar said.
The new special roaming vouchers would be available starting 1 July 2013, across all 22 circles.
