After Reliance, which announced their Unlimited Mobile Internet plans recently, it seems as though Uninor too wants to have some share in the data market (I wonder if this is what they are calling ‘Ab mera Number Hai’ ?). If you are a Uninor customer, here are its Unlimited GPRS plans for mobiles (yes, you can connect it to your laptop and browse the Internet):
MyConnect 9: Get 60MB of Data for Rs.9 with a validity of 3 days.
MyConnect 90: Get up to 3GB of Data for Rs.90 with a validity of 30 days.
Post free data usage, a charge of 10ps/10kb will be levied in both the plans.
3 Reason’s why this is better than Airtel
Lower Price: Airtel’s Unlimited Mobile Internet plan costs Rs.98 per month and the lowest plan is Rs.24 that lasts for 5 days. With Uninor, the monthly plan costs Rs.90 and the lower plan costs Rs.9 with 3 days validity.
More Data: Airtel’s RC 98 only gives 2GB of Data where as Uninor gives 3 GB of Data. When it comes to the chhota plan, Airtel’s Rs.24 plan gives 200MB while Uninor gives 60MB for Rs.9 (calculate yourself what this projects to for Rs.24 with 5 days validity. I’m really poor at Maths)
More Speed: Airtel is an old boy and its network is pretty cramped all the time. If you need good speeds using Airtel GPRS, better use it in the night or early in the morning (see this post on what speeds you can reach with Airtel GPRS). Uninor, being a new player should have plenty of unused network. Hence you may see similar speeds, regardless of the time of the day.
Bonus with Uninor
What’s even better with Uninor’s Unlimited Mobile Internet plans is that you will not be charged a single paisa if you browse Social Networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Finally, say loudly ‘Ab Mera Number Hai’.
Update 2013: While all other operators have increased their tariff’s for mobile data packs, Uninor is single such operator which has decreased. Airtel, Vodafone, Tata Docomo, Idea all offer just 1GB for (around) Rs.100 recharge. Uninor, on the other hand offers 3GB mobile internet for just Rs.89 with a validity of 28 days. Remember Uninor doesn’t have a 3G license, so whenever you hear Data with Uninor, by default it is on 2G network.
