Here is the list of the Top 10 3G data plans available in the Indian Market.
Pay as you go
Vodafone launched a 3G plan similar to that of Idea but it is cheaper than that of the Airtel plan.
Rs102/- for 300MB-one month validity
Rs251/- Rs451/- for 1GB and 2GB-one month validity
Rs850/-3GB two month validity
These are the plans offered by Vodafone which are cheaper as compared to other operators and the main thing is that the data plans for more than 3GB offered by other operators is having a one month validity but Vodafone is providing with two months validity which is a plus point for its users.
What users say: Although a bit expensive, users found this plan to be way better than others as far as connectivity and reliability is concerned. Vodafone maintains its market reputation with this plan.
Reliance - My Best Plan
This is what you are waiting for reliance has announced their new my best plan 3G data plan which is much more cheaper than any other operators providing. Here are the details which will make you to take this plan.
It is the plan which is good for a first time user who don’t know their uses as it provides a 6GB 3G data and after that unlimited in normal speed which means there is no way of getting extra bill which irritates the users.
What users say: This plan is specially intended for users who cannot judge what their exact usage will be as the plan does not get over after you exhaust your 3G data limit. Anyhow the normal speed you get afterwards is too slow and will only be useful if you just want to open your mail or Facebook accounts. Forget watching videos at that speed.
Tata docomo 3G plan
If you are not a regular user but when you use the net you want to have a high speed .So the Tata docomo offers you a Rs5/- plan which gives you a 50MB data usage for a day and RS22/- plan which offers you 150MB data usage. So anyone can clearly see the cost difference from others operator which provides the 3G data plan.
What users say: This plan is way too cheap. And furthermore, it is a combination of docomo’s technology with Tata’s trust. Anyhow this plan is inefficient in Delhi region.
Airtel 3G data plan
Seeing the data prices changing by other operator’s airtel changed their 3G data plans to increase the number of operators by providing a speedy environment at an affordable price.
Airtel is providing 150MB data for seven days at price of Rs45 /- which was earlier cost 65Rs. And by giving 100Rs the user can get 300MB data for 30 days.
What users say: This 3G data plan is cheaper as compared to Vodafone’s. Furthermore, it has quite a decent service team as well. Anyhow a few glitches have been reported as far as the connectivity is concerned. Still, I would say that it is a nice option for those looking for a cheaper plan.
Aircel 3G Data Plans for USB Data Card
Looking at the offers made by the aircel for the mobile subscribers is not very good as they cost higher price and lower data. But 3G data plan for the usb data card brought a layer of happiness to all the aircel users as it offers an unlimited plan at Rs.1250/- for one month at a speed of 3.6mbps.
What users say: Aircel faced serious connectivity issues recently and furthermore its service team has been criticized a lot. Furthermore, its high cost makes it a worse option than others.
Aircel combo offers

Rs1502/- plan which offers you a data of 3GB with 500 local and 500 std minutes and 1000 local and national messages free of cost for one month.
Rs802/- plan which offers you a data of 1GB with 250 local and 250 std minutes and 500 local and national messages free of cost for one month.
What users say: Users don’t prefer it as much due to high cost and below average services.
Idea 3G net setter
Unlimited internet, up to 4GB at the rate of 21.1 Mbps, speed will reduce to 128 Kbps till 6GB and 20 kbps after 6GB.
Its validity is for one month.
What users say: Idea net setter was the most preferred wireless network till the recent 7 day server breakdown while let to a lot of consumer’s shifting over to other networks. Anyhow now the problem has been solved and Idea assures no repeat of this incident. Buy at your own risk.
MTS is offering many unlimited offers which the user can switch to and these are some of the offers which is attracting users.
Rs798/- for 6GB data for one month and after 6GB usage the data speed will be normal.
Rs1898/- for 12GB data for two months and after 6GB usage the data speed will be normal.
What users say: MTS gives exactly what it says. And the regular speed you get after the plan gets over is better than that of other plans. So it’s worth buying.
