Why Indian Telecom Operators Are Increasing 2G Data Tariffs

January 12, 2013

Telecom operators such as Bharti Airtel, Vodafone and Idea have hiked up 2G data tariffs by almost 30 percent to cover costs and improve margins, reports PTI (via Firstpost, reported first by TelecomTalk), reporting that other operators might follow the suit as well. However, no communication has been sent to customers by Bharti Airtel.
Vodafone will offer its 1GB 2G monthly data plan for Rs 125, which earlier was priced at Rs 99 per month, as will Airtel and Idea. Similarly, telecos have also further reduced data caps of other 2G data plans. Last year, Vodafone and Airtel had reduced the data cap to 1GB from 2GB on their 2G data pack worth Rs 99 per month.
