Idea Cellular today launched, NetSetter, their version of USB wireless internet for prepaid as well as postpaid users in Mumbai. Idea did not divulge the actual speed but we presume it would be at par with the prevailing EDGE speeds.
The USB data card is priced at Rs. 2,490. Though available for both prepaid and postpaid, Idea has revealed only the prepaid plans. For starters, Idea has an introductory offer for its customers giving 50 MB worth of free download and above that, an additional of 1 paise/10KB will be levied. THowever, for avid net surfers, there s an unlimited plan with a daily charge of Rs. 30. In addition to its net surfing capabilities, NetSetter also allows users to send and receive SMSes on their desktop or laptops.
