With this new campaign #DelhiNahiRukegi, Idea Cellular has announced the commercial launch of its superior 3G network in Delhi NCR, on the back of a robust data network of 2,500 3G cell sites and 5,000 modernized 2G cell sites.

“Mobile users in Delhi NCR are the most evolved consumers in the country with high usage of both voice and data services. Unfortunately, the high traffic on jammed networks has left consumers unhappy and looking for a network which offers superior connectivity, both on the roads as well as indoors. Over the last two years, Idea has invested heavily in acquiring spectrum in the most efficient 900 MHz band and setting up a future-ready, modernized network to cater to the growing demand of mobile users in the region.

“Delhi‘s growing population is adding to the pressure on the city’s infrastructure and often results in endless traffic jams which further causes stress amongst citizens. A similar analogy can be drawn with the city’s mobile networks. With this insight, we created the #DelhiNahiRukegi campaign using a metaphor where we are showing a virtual superhighway with our 3G 900. This is also the main creative for this entire campaign. The upcoming creatives will highlight the plight of Delhiites in various situations, and will suggest a simple solution in the unique Idea way,” said Sashi Shankar, Chief Marketing Officer, Idea Cellular.
