Good NEWS for India 3G data lovers, telecom companies are on the way to reduce the 3G data prices in many circles. Reliance 3G took the lead and announced a significant cut in its 3G data plans.
The new 3G data plans, which the as the company claims "2G ke rates me 3G", are available for prepaid and postpaid Reliance customers. Reliance is offering 3G data for 1GB at Rs. 123, 2GB at Rs. 246 and 4GB at Rs. 492. Although these data plans are applicable only for use in mobile phones and cannot be used with data card. 

RCom says, "the aggressive and affordable pricing is likely to push adoption of 3G network in the country, “ensuring greater traction from mid- to high-level data users, and resulting in significant data usage and revenue growth across customer segments”.
