Tata Docomo 2G and 3G data rate reduced by 90%

Tata Docomo has reduced its 2G and 3G data tariffs by 90 percent.

Following the footsteps of Bharti Airtel and Vodafone, Tata Teleservices, which operates under Tata Docomo brand, said the new volume based charging (VBC) will be applicable from 1 July 2013 for its existing as well as new prepay GSM customers.

Earlier, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone slashed 2G internet tariffs in their select telecom circles.

Bharti Airtel has also reduced its 4G tariffs by 31 percent.

Tata Docomo says the revised tariffs will be applicable on 2G data packs – RC 126 (1.5GB for 30 days), RC 149 (2GB for 30 days) and RC 249 (3GB for 60 days) and 3G data pack – RC 255 (1GB for 30 days).

Once customers use their free 2G or 3G data quantum, they can continue to access mobile internet by paying 1 paise per 10 kb instead of the earlier 10 paise per 10 kb data, enjoying 90 percent discount.

This proposition will be applicable even while customers are roaming on Tata DOCOMO GSM network nationally.

“This will increase data penetration across segments and a 90 percent discount will serve as a customer friendly yet clear differentiator for our customers,” said Gurinder Singh Sandhu, head Marketing, Tata Docomo.
