Photon Plus 3.1Mbps unlimited Internet for Rs.750/month

So if you’ve been attracted by those catchy ads of Tata Photon plus mentioning Unlimited Internet at just Rs.950 per month, here’s the catch. While it is really unlimited, you’ll only get the photon plus speeds of 3.1 Mbps up to 5GB, beyond which the speed reduces to the normal 1x CDMA speed of 155 Kbps. So essentially, this is just an addition to the initial Tata photo plus tariff of 5 GB for Rs.950 per month, which is no doubt useful.

If 5 GB is just too small, there are two other Unlimited plans:

Rs.1100 per month plan where 3.1 Mbps speeds will be up to 10GB and

Rs.1500 per month plan where 3.1 Mbps speeds will be up to 15GB, beyond which, the speed will decrease to 155 Kbps.

Decreased price

If you didn’t know, Tata Photon plus post paid USB Modem is only Rs.2499 now. Added to that, you will get a Rs.200 discount in your monthly bill for 1 year from the date of activation. Which means that if you choose the Rs.950 unlimited plan, you’ll only be billed Rs.750 (plus applicable taxes) for 1 year, which is not a bad deal at all.

Speed concerns

A lot of Tata Photon users complain that they do not get the speeds advertised. Before you buy a Tata Photon device, please be sure that your area is served under its special High speed network. This network is different from the traditional Tata Indicom CDMA network. Please call the toll free number 1800266121 to know if your area comes under their high speed network coverage. If it doesn’t, then you’ll only get the 1x CDMA speeds of 155Kbps (even this is up to the ISP, the speed which you’ll receive will be much less). If it does, depending on the time, proximity to the High Speed tower and number of concurrent users, you should get a speed of (plus or minus something) 2Mbps (Mega bits)  or 256 KBps (Kilo Bytes).

Note: Tariff and speeds are subject to revision. As on June 2013, the tariff plans for Tata Photon Plus (prepaid) are revised as:

Rs.700: 2GB, Rs.750: Rs.3GB, Rs.1000: 6GB, Rs.1200: 11GB.

All the above plans are unlimited with speeds reducing from 3.1Mbps to 155Kbps after the mentioned data usage.

Postpaid plans are also similar to the above and are slightly (by Rs.50 or so) cheaper than prepaid.

    airtel gprs is very best from others. only RS 98 for one month & get 2gb free download.

  15. hey i want to know the actual price of that and the max speed also plz reply as soon as possible……


  17. bsnl evdo is not better. its the worst solution you can go for.

    they had charged me 650 pm for usage of evdo card. those people promised a minimum download speed of 60-80 kbps. however in reality thank lord Ganesha if you get even a speed of 4-5 kbps.

    they are running a corporate scam and are fooling people worse than tata or reliance.

    i have discontinued my service (even when i tried to do so i went through a thousand different harrasements) and even discontinued the 500c+ home broad band scheme, as they have slashed the speeds during the night time (2-8 am) from a minimum download speed of 160-175 or 198 in good days, to a miserable 30-45 kbps. that too is not fixed.

    i suggest getting a good smart phone, an airtel sim and the rs 98 gprs plan which provides 2gb usage.

    i use the n97 mini with airtel Sim (i got this free). connected to laptop with data cable and using IDM i get download speeds of 12-14 kbps.

    right now i am reduced to basic internet work. that too slow and painful as a conversation with your mother in law. i cant download games., no question of downloading movies and i feel that i have gone back to the days of dial up.

    i wish scrotal cancer upon the bastards of bsnl.
