TATA DOCOMO launches GSM services in Hyderabad, Andhra pradesh.
If you are a frequent reader of this blog, you should have read my initial thoughts on TATA DOCOMO GSM after it was launched.
But the service wasn’t launched in my home town Hyderabad at that time and I was desperately waiting for it to happen. And today, the day has come, as DOCOMO is officially launched in Andhra Pradesh.
Its features are unique and never heard of in Indian Telecom history.
It’s simple, don’t pay for the unused. You talk for 1 min 32 sec, you only pay 92 paisa (60+32 s) and not 2 rupees. So it’s a 1 second pulse and not a 60 second pulse as you would see elsewhere.
As a promotional offer, DOCOMO also offer national calls (STD) at the same rate as local calls, i.e 1 paisa/sec which effectively means 60 paisa per 1 minute and that too without any pre-recharge with any voucher.
For those who love and live on SMS’s, here is a great offer. Now there is no need to pre-recharge with 45 or 55 Rs vouchers to get SMS rates at 2 paisa or 10 paisa.
You just pay for the first 3 SMS’s in a day and get the next 150 SMS free for the day. This offer is for the customers in Andhra Pradesh but if you stay in Tamilnadu you got even bigger offer. You pay for the first 3 SMS’s in a day and get the next 750 SMS free for that day.
And how much does a normal SMS cost you (first 3 SMS in a day)?
Not 1 rupee like other network, it’s only 60 paisa per SMS local and 1.20 rupees national.
The start-up voucher is Rs.49 with life-time validity and of course when some one says life time validity, conditions obviously apply. Here the condition is that you must spend at least Rs.100 in 3 months time.
