It's as simple as this that in 2g network, the speed is slow and so ultimately we get to use less quantity of data, while 3g offers a comparatively higher speed of data transfer so we use more data and hence the company charges more money from us!! Hope this information would be useful to you!!

2G and 3G are the two generation networks. 3G is the advanced version of 2G network. Hence, 3G is advanced so the features of 3G is also advanced. Hence if the features are advanced of 3G, then the cost of 3G network is also high than the 2G network. 3G network offers us to use high speed internet, video calling, musch secure network as compare to 2G network .So the 3G tariff plans are costly than 2G....Thanx

The customers will get a high speed network for their communication which is far better than the 2G technology, particularly in data communication. Since in telecom sector, there is much competition, so the companies have a very marginal price for their facilities.

The general consensus among many Indian users is that 3G is expensive. They compare 3G rates to 2G rates, for example, one can get 2GB of 2G data at Rs. 99 in a month and conclude that 3G is expensive. The is not always a fair comparison because 2G only provides speeds of KBPS and its impossible to use 2GB of 2G data in one month. We decided to look at this argument by analyzing High Speed Internet Access rates which we think is a fairer comparison. High Speed Internet Access providers are those who offer speeds up to 3.1 Mbps like MTS, Reliance NetConnect+ and Tata Photon+. High Speed Internet Access use 2G EVDO spectrum and not 3G spectrum. Based on our discussions with people on forums and other social media tool, it was revealed that consumers have two myths with regard to 3G and High Speed Internet Access. They are: 1) High Speed Internet Access, which offers low speeds i.e. up to 3.1 Mbps, are much cheaper than 3G plans offering speed limits up to 21.6 Mbps. 2) Since High Speed Internet Access plans were launched earlier than 3G ,its coverage is better and has better up-link and down-link frequency.
