MTNL has made its 3G data plans more lucrative for customers in Delhi circle. The company has introduced some new plans and has enhanced the free data in existing plans. MTNL 3G data plans which were already cheapest in the market become more value laiden after this revision.
With the objective of stimulating the sale of 3G data card, MTNL has introduced an special offer in Delhi circle. Under this offer on the purchase of a 3G data card for Rs.1200 a customer will get 15 GB of free bundled data. This free data will be valid for 30 days. Till now the customers have been gating 1 GB of free data only. This enhancement of free bundled data perhaps aims at making customers believe that their initial cost is redeemed by way of free data.
With the view to add more value in 3G Vidyarthi STVs (Special tariff Vouchers) , MTNL is going to enhance free 3G data in these coupons.

These coupons are meant for those customers who want unlimited free own network calling. Both these coupons offer free calling on own network for 30 days alongwith some other benefits.
State run telecom PSU MTNL has slashed the price of its 3G Teracom Data card by 25% in Mumbai circle
MTNL had earlier launched some attractive daily, weekly and yearly 3 G data plans on 15th May as promotional offer. These plans were very much in demand specially the daily plan of Rs.41 and weekly plan of Rs76 which offered 1 GB data during the validity period. Later these plans were stopped without any notification anywhere after 15th June and many customers including me as well were hankering here and there. The paytm website started displaying the message ” We are currently witnessing high failures for MTNL recharge in Delhi” .
At last, MTNL realised that their 3G pricing was not in sync with the prevailing market rates. The company which had earlier said that it would never go for tariff increase has taken its words back and increased the 3G data rates for all postpaid and prepaid plans from 1p/12 KB to 2p/10 KB. These rates will be applicable for any usage beyond the free data in any plan as well as in pay as you use plans.
Here is one I found for price conscious customers. This trick will work for MTNL 3G users in Delhi circle. MTNL had recently launched a daily 3G data pack of Rs.20 which gives 250 MB of free data valid for 1 day. But actually I have found that this coupon is valid for 2 days and not 1 day. If you recharge in morning on any day it will be valid till midnight of next day. So one gets 250 MB of data valid for 2 days for Rs.20 only. This way in a month one gets 3.75 GB of data for Rs.300 a month only. Whereas other coupons give maximum upto 1.25 GB of data for this price in a month. So with this trick one enjoys 2.5 GB of more data a month for the price of Rs.300 . Getting 2.5 GB of additional data is way too much for price conscious customers.
But there is 1 downside to this that is the necessity to recharge after every two days. So that’s a bit cumbersome. But with online recharge through Paytm it can be done easily.
