Idea Cellular has added 5.1 million new 3G connections for the year ended March 31, 2014, taking the telco's total 3G EoP subscription base to 10.2 million. In comparison, Idea Cellular had added 4.6 million new 3G subscriptions during 2013 with 3G EoP subscription base at 8.7 million in the previous quarter.
