Anyone tried this?

You can get the 15GB data package for £20 and the 8gb for £15.

From their site:

How much data can I use when I am roaming in India?

You can use upto 10GB data and 200 minutes and texts to call India and the UK absolutely free. A small surcharge of 5p/MB and 10p/min applies thereafter to continue using your plan. We are the best network to use for roaming in India and the only one who let you roam worry -free with no nasty roaming bills to pay when you get back home!

I know its more expensive than buying a local sim, but no hassle at all. Buy the sim in the UK, pop it in, switch on roaming and done

I have tried this. The data connection isn't usable. I think it connects to 3g only and I dunt get data in many parts of Mumbai and Visakhapatnam (areas I have been to).

I tried manually selecting Airtek 4g or 3g but it didn't register.

So overall useful only for calls not for data but may well depend on area of visit.

Thanks, can I ask what you ended up using for data purposes?

Lebara doesn't work everywhere in in India. There is no service on large parts of Gujarat for example. Lebara only connects to a Vodafone mobile signal. In India two mobile carriers have merged - Vodafone and IDEA - locals can roam between these freely but Lebara users cannot. There only seems to be either Vodafone or Idea signals and not both in any area. So, large parts of India is not available for Lebara users.

Worked fine in Kerala, India while I was vacationing during Feb ‘20. Calls to UK and India numbers worked well, data connection was ok (I think it was being throttled), was getting around 1 Mbps download consistently. Make sure you are connected to Vodafone IN network (I am assuming VI India now), doesn’t register to any other network
