Indian mobile network operator Idea Cellular has partnered the leading e-commerce company Flipkart. As part of this deal, Idea customers will now be eligible for new high-speed data offers upon upgrading to 4G handsets via Flipkart. Idea said that this partnership would help users choose from a wide range of 4G smartphones with various offers and data benefits up to 15GB at the cost of 1GB. Flipkart, on the other hand, said that this would enable customers to make the most out of their online purchase.
Idea customers buying 4G smartphones from Idea website will also be eligible for different exchange offers and plans on Flipkart. Furthermore, Idea customers can also avail 70% discount on accessories like 10,000 mAH power banks and more. Interestingly, this offer ends on March 31, 2017 — similar to Jio’s free data offer. However, there was a report yesterday that Reliance Jio may extend its free services until June 30, 2017.
