Tata DoCoMo offers flat rate and tiered 3G tariff plans

9 Nov

We have finally received official word from Tata DoCoMo regarding its 3G tariff plans and it seems like the carrier is banking upon a strategy of flat rate plans for cellphones and tiered plans for data cards/Internet Tablets.

There are four plans for cellphones starting from Rs 500 and going up to Rs 2,000. For Rs 500, a subscriber will get 750 minutes of local and STD calls and 250 MB of 3G data. For Rs 750, it will be 1250 minutes of calls and 500 MB of 3G data. The Rs 1,000 plan will give 2,000 minutes of calls and 1 GB of 3G data and Rs 2,000 plan will offer 5,000 minutes of calls and 2 GB of data. Prepaid users also have a Rs 350 plan that gives 500 minutes of calls and 150 MB of 3G data.

In addition to this, subscribers can also top up 3G data plans with Rs 200 (200 MB) and Rs 500 (650 MB). These packs are valid for 30 days. Prepaid users can also top up with Rs 90 that will give 100 MB of 3G data and will be valid for seven days.

For Internet Tablets and USB modems, Tata DoCoMo offers tiered unlimited plans according to speed. Subscribers can check the maximum speed compatible with their device and choose a plan accordingly.

Users can also choose from basic plans at 3.6 Mbps speeds, which are priced at Rs 500 (650 MB) and Rs 750 (2 GB).

      Hi Kiran,

      21.1 Mbps is the theoretical speed that HSPA+ technology can provide. We believe that it is a good practice to price tariffs according to speed offered. What is the use of paying for 21.1 Mbps speed when your device is capable of doing just 3.6 Mbps? Probably you missed, but these plans are based on data usage. The faster the speed the more you pay for the same amount of data.
