Idea Cellular has launched a new ‘Emergency Internet usage service’ – a credit offer to allow uninterrupted internet browsing experience for its prepaid subscribers in Rajasthan on its 2G network.
Mobile users, especially in rural parts of the state, are now increasingly accessing internet on the phone. However, due to low or zero balance in their accounts or their inability to recharge immediately, such users are unable to enjoy the internet experience seamlessly or face abrupt interruption in service.
To tap in on this opportunity, Idea has introduced this new service, under which if any Idea prepaid subscribers having a balance of less than Rs 2 in their account can avail upto 50 MB free Internet usage for two days, just by calling 53566, or by dialling *666#.
Idea users who run out of balance can avail the service by dialling 53566 (toll free) from their Idea number. Rs 5 will be recovered from the user’s account on the subsequent Top-Up recharge. The pricing is good for a credit scheme and is almost in line with what you get otherwise.
