Major telecom companies Airtel,Idea Cellular and Vodafone have halved the amount of data downloads on 2G networks under certain tariff plans,pushing up the cost of using mobile Internet services.Customers will,for instance, have to pay about 25% extra to download 1 GB data. All the three companies,which dominate India’s mobile services market with about 53% share, have reduced the quantum of internet download and/or validity periods on various packages they were offering, as per their websites. They were offering 1 GB (or 1024 MB) internet usage until recently for about Rs 125, which has been reduced to 525 MB.
