Airtel USB Modem Micromax 200G at Rs.2000

In between the heavy advertising rolls of Tata Photon plus and Reliance Net Connect one may not even be aware that there are other alternate USB modems out in the market. Now this one is about Airtel USB modem, a device manufactured by Micromax (MMX 200G). It’s cheap at Rs.2000 per device and works in a GPRS/EDGE network.

Why should you use Airtel USB modem?

If you already have a wired broadband in your home and want a wireless Internet accessing device for occasional travels, this could be the thing to look for. Mind you that Tata Photon now also is available in Prepaid mode, which is best suited for Occasional travellers. Since MMX 200G works on a GPRS/EDGE network (Tata photon uses UMTS/HSDPA network to provide high speed internet), speed may not be sensational, but it does the work well.

What’s even better is that, if you already have Mobile Office installed in your phone, you needn’t even go for a special recharge to get connected. Just insert your Mobile Office enabled Airtel sim card, and it works right out of the box.

If you didn’t know, Airtel has brought back the RC 98 Unlimited GPRS pack (up to 2GB) with 1 month validity. Just recharge your mobile with Rs.98 and go on your tour with MMX 200G.

I happened to test this device on Windows 7 (yes it does support Win7 besides, Windows Vista and XP) and found the speed to be varying between 10 and 110kbps (See the screen shots below). Don’t confuse between kb/s and kB/s (1 byte is 8bits).

200g 200g1

This speed is no where near my Home broadband of 512kbps, but keeping updated on the things is all I need when I go out of my state, not the speed.

If you have keenly seen the image, you might have noticed a Mail icon. That’s not a mail but a messaging icon. MMX200G supports SMS messages from your PC. Which means you will receive sms messages on your PC while you are using your sim card via this modem for Internet.

Update: This USB modem is now phased out by Micromax. It now has various 3G modems (which also support 2G data, in case you don’t have 3G in your area).

  2. I’m using airtel micromax 200g modem the speed is very slow.
    This automatically disconnected connection before 5-10 minutes please how to solve this.

    • 200G is basically a 2G Data card so you can at best get 2G speed. Even though you have a 3G data plan, this modem is not capable of 3G speeds. This is a really old data card any way and has been discontinued by Micromax. Purchase any new 3G data card (along with 3G plan) and you’ll get faster speeds.

  3. Help me !

    here is the GPRS & EDGE network max. download speed in Delhi. All the network providers provides currently this speed, u try anything but u cannot get more than this speed which is:-
    Max. Download Speed of GPRS = 5-7 Kbps. Its sign is ‘ G’.
    Max. Download Speed of EDGE = 25-32 Kbps. Its sign is ‘E’.

    Your mobile automatically switches between EDGE & GPRS.
    You can increase download speed by ” Disable automatically update programs “. This program update whenever you connect to internet. you cannot see this. Use IDM the fastest download manager ever.
    Or get a more high speed internet connection.

    • i also using the same with airtel sim card but i et only speed of 10-40kbps..

      reply

    • you used in which sim in the data card micromax 200g it give you 100to 200 kbps speed
      it cannot in this 200g data card if it give 100to200 kbps speed your data card is very good like 3g data card………..

  53. HOW IS RATE FOR MICROMAX 200G MODEM?AND 3G MODEM?AM USE FOR AIRTEL SIM FOR MICROMAX USB MODEM…

  54. Guys! I purchased a micromax 300g yesterday… It costs Rs. 3200. And BSNL 3G sim costs Rs. 206… I recharged Rs. 175 to do unlimited internet for 1 month… Download has no limit!!
    During the day, it gives a good speed of 200kbps.. And at night, after 11p.m., it gives a whopping speed of 350kbps and above…!! It’s a good value for money.. Go and purchase it today..!! The micromax software is also supported by Windows7 Ultimate.

    It’s just a simply outstanding and mind blowing internet device from Micromax!!

    • 350kbps is no whooping in 3G network. I constantly get speeds of over 1Mbps without the use of any USB device, by simply connecting the phone to my laptop using a PC suite.

      • which mobile u have use to get it

      • hai sriraj …

        congrats for getting that much speed..

        please tell me which phone ur using and whats the connection.. i think no phone has the capacity of giving that much speed .

        • What does phone’s capacity has to do here?
          I’ve used Airtel’s 2G Sim with Micromax MMX 200G USB data card and got those speeds. I think I tested it around 8 in the morning.
          FYI, When I’m out of Wifi range and have something urgent to do, I connect my Airtel mobile to my laptop using Nokia (I use Nokia 5800) Ovi suite and get similar speeds. Of course the speed will be much less as the day progresses as most Bandwidth will be occupied by Voice calls.

      • How this give?

    • dear,
      we read yr exp..but 175 3g no sceem in all up any network sceem only
      2g sim 296 bsnl local (poor network) is allow but other com..as tata docomo

      thanking u
      basu

  55. give me micromax modem price list with gsm &cdma normal

  56. sonjoy borphukan

    my mmx200g modem is not work properly,when i try to conect to the internet the show disconecting.my airtel mobile no is 9678320378.

  57. I bought a Airtel USB modem, manufactured by Micromax (MMX 200G).In my experience i can confirmly say that ,it is not a speedy device with poor service.Most of the times its net work speed is between 1kpb to 15kpbs and sometimes will be zero.(i inspected my computer by experts -OK ,to confirm any system problem). like Yahoo sites sometimes it will take 10 to 30 minutes or more to perform even the areas where full covarage available.The service providers are not interested to solve such a problem,like this by many users , except some wague answers .The manufactures(if technological problems) or the service provider(insufficient band width) should rectify and solve the problem,otherwise eliminate the term ‘High Speed’from its website or advertisement.

    • 200G is NOT an High speed device.
      One user mentioned earlier that the best time to use the 2G network for Data purposes is early in the morning. I did so, and I got speeds of 100kbps. My 64 bit Win 7 Ultimate OS would have definitely helped me in the cause.
      I keep saying this, and I say it again, 2G network should not be considered as a replacement of your Broadband and should not be used on a computer. It is rather meant for mobile phone browsers that can compress the content and deliver web pages faster.

    • first check ur tower is near to u…,
      next use tata docomo sim recharge with rc 95 u can get 6gb for 1 month its speed is high…,
      im using that now…..,

  58. I dont think so the speed which is shown in sreen shot is correct, beacuse 2 g network speed will not be more than 60Kbps, in case u want to check d actual speed try out this link. ‘http://speed.kify.com/meter.php,

    I am using tata indicom USB and my bandwidth is normally more than 100Kbps, before writing this post just checked bandwidth it was 133

  67. which service provider provides extremely high speed internet for micromax 300g deta card

  68. Hi! I want to know that does all sim card works in micromax 200g & 300g data card. Please give me the answer.

  69. hello sir,
    i m using airtel micromax200g modem the speed is worst,,uptodate i want 2 change my connection which prepaid connection is better…….fr using in the micromax 200g modem

    • Changing the network wouldn’t make any difference, provided your current Airtel signal is really worse. If you need extremely high speed, you should go for 300G device that can access UMTS/HSDPA network.

  70. i am using airtel micromax usb modem,when i connect it i get a pop up message saying ‘this device can perform faster if u connect it to a hispeed usb drive’,but the problem is that i already have hi speed usb ports,but still i get that message.
    any one can help me with this problem????

    • Its not a problem. No matter to what port you connect it to, you will still get that message. That message ‘ this device can perform faster’ is regarding the USB when used as a storage device but not the browsing speed.

  71. speed is very less.
