The company has increased the cost of 1 GB of 3G internet usage to Rs. 156 from Rs. 123 it charged earlier.
    
The Rs. 123 mobile internet pack on its 3G network will now offer only 400 MB of internet surfing, which is down by about 60%.
    
Under the high value 3G mobile internet pack of Rs. 246 and Rs. 492, the company has reduced usage limit from 2GB to 1.5 GB and from 4 GB to 3 GB respectively.
