Telenor Data SIM is Same Like Normal SIM With Recharge Tax


Telenor Data SIM comes with the internet devices given by Telenor, like Dongle and Wingle. But any user can get the same Data SIM for only internet purpose from franchise and service centers.

Advantage of Data SIM are,  the attractive 3G packages which are not available in normal SIM and these packages are made for internet usage. In normal SIM GBs are limited and price are high but in Data SIM the internet packages are attractive.

But here in Telenor,  there are some thing different which stops you to buy or use this Data SIM. In Telenor Data SIM, there are recharge tax like normal SIM which shouldn’t be there,  because this SIM is only for internet purpose like PTCL EVO, Qubee, Wi-Tribe and other internet service provider which are not collecting tax on recharge. You have to load only specific amount for your Telenor monthly package plan.

But in Telenor Data SIM there are 14% withholding tax and 10% service charges will be charged on every recharge. It means this SIM is same like normal and nothing special,  if you want to activate Rs. 1500 package for internet than you have to load almost Rs. 1860.

This is some thing strange and those who are willing to get Data SIM or wingle from Telenor should keep in mind that this internet will cost you very high in price as compared to PTCL EVO or other.

WaridTel is another example which are not charging Tax on recharge and you can get Warid wingle or Data SIM to use their 4G. And on recharge customers get complete Rs. 100 on loading a balance of Rs. 100.
