Aircel 3G Tariff and Data Plans
By Chinmoy on April 4, 2011

I am working on a series of posts on 3G plans provided by the various cellular networks in India. I did a piece on Idea Cellular and Vodafone earlier. This time, I landed on the Aircel website looking for its 3G plans and I must say, its website is far cleaner than the Vodafone and Idea website I saw earlier. However, it maintains the legacy of making information hard to find and has some incomplete content at places.

Aircel 3G claims it has support for up to 21 Mbps speeds on 3G. To activate a 3G data connection on your Aircel number, you simply need to send an SMS to 5800000 with the text 3G. The 3G data plan on Aircel is known as Pocket Internet 3G and the precious page is found at Aircel 3G plans for Chennai circle>this URL. I have pulled up the plans for the Chennai circle and the plans for other circles will be quite similar.

Aircel 3G Mobile Internet Plans

As clear from the plans above, the speed varies from 1.8 to 7.2 Mbps depending on how much you are paying. Plans with higher data limits are given higher bandwidth. So, they exhaust faster and you are as usual, this 3G plan from Aircel is as overpriced as any other 3G plan. Initial plans like these beat the fear into the minds of the common man and still forces some of them to dread all Internet services.
