Tata DOCOMO to slash 2G and 3G Data Tarrif from July 1
Tata DOCOMO has joined its Vodafone, Airtel and Idea by drastically slashing its 2G and 3G data tariffs by 90 percent. Gurinder Singh Sandhu, Head Marketing, Tata DOCOMO said that the move is driven by mobile internet adoption and usage acceleration. The reduced rates will be applicable from July 1 for its existing as well as new prepay GSM customers across the country.
The revised tariffs will be applicable on 2G data packs, RC 126 (2GB for 30 days), RC 149 (2.5GB for 30 days) and RC 249 (3GB for 60 days) and 3G data pack, RC 255 (2GB for 30 days) and other circle specific packs in the similar segment.
Once customers exhaust their free 2G or 3G data quantum, they can continue to access high-speed mobile internet by paying only 1 paise per 10 kb instead of the earlier 10 paise per 10 kb data; thereby enjoying a 90 percent discount. This proposition will be applicable even while customers are roaming on Tata DOCOMO GSM network nationally.
Vodafone India has chosen to lower 2G data rates in Karnataka, UP West and MPCG and will be rolled out nationally in phased manner.
Bharti Airtel also slashed 4G data charges by 31 percent to expand its fourth-generation wireless broadband services in Bangalore, Kolkata, Pune and Chandigarh.
