Idea said in a statement that The upheaval in the Indian wireless industry continued in Q1FY18, despite the new entrant slowly migrating from Free Services to Paid Services but with heavily discounted unlimited voice and data pricing plans.

Idea added, These aggressive tariff offerings by Idea (in response to the new entrant), led by unlimited voice and data bundled plans, resulted in a steep decline of voice and mobile data realisation rates. However, for the company, the fall in realisation rates was largely compensated by a substantial volume growth in both mobile voice and data segments. As per the Et reports.
