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. Unlimited 3G packs starting at as low as Rs 9, erases all such worries and gives confidence to use 3G and Stay Online. We are extremely committed to the Karnataka circle and will constantly strive to provide simple and innovative products and services to our customers”
