There has been a dramatic increase in the sales of smartphones and this has led to a widespread need of data, especially for the youth.

It is a known fact that with each passing day, the need of our customers to have access to seamless data connectivity on their mobile phones is increasing manifold. With increasing frequency and hours of time spend on being online; there is a customer fear of probable bill shock due to perception of high charges.
