Tata DoCoMo 3G tariff plans revealed

9 Nov

Tata DoCoMo, which became the first private GSM carrier to launch 3G services in India has announced the tariff plans for its 3G offerings, according to Telecom Talk. Video calls will be charged at 66 paise per minute and ‘3G Life Plans’ will start from Rs 350 for prepaid users and Rs 500 for postpaid subscribers. All plans will come with bundled voice calls, video calls and data pack. The site is claiming that a Rs 2,000 pack would give 5,000 minutes of voice or video calls as well as up to 2 GB of high speed Internet browsing.

The carrier is also introducing a data card pack that will provide up to 15 GB of data usage at HSPA+ speeds (up to 21.1 Mbps theoretically) for Rs 2,000 per month. If the usage exceeds 15 GB, subscribers will get free unlimited data at up to 256 Kbps speeds.

If this information is true, it would make Tata DoCoMo the first Indian carrier to offer only bundled plans, a practice that is quite popular in the US. Rather than charging subscribers for individual calls, these plans offer flat rate usage under different tiers. Let’s see whether Indian subscribers will fall for such plans or not. What do you think?

    I think Tata Docomo will start a price war with the BSNL 3G now! New players in the market means its good for customers like us..

    3G service is for rich users who can afford to spend everyday, but for common people or students 2G is the best & will remain best till 3G becomes cheaper than now.
    250mb of download limit for 500 bucks with high speed is just a matter of 2 hours usage, after that it will get over n we have to spend 500 again. That is totally impossible for majority of users. So obviously this 3G will be a flop service in India untill it is made easily aaffordable.
    After launching 3G service by Tata Docomo, 2G or old EDGE service became unstable. Most of the time it becomes very slow for browser or sumtime service gets unavailable. Still then, it is better to continue sticking with 2G service only n enjoy daily social networking service at a reasonable rate.
