Gaurav Hasabnis Reviews Reliance Mobile Internet in Mumbai

I am using the postpaid GSM servcies from Reliance Communications from the time when they launched their services in Mumbai telecom circle. Approximately close to a year back. From day 1 the company offers GPRS/EDGE services over postpaid connections. But in Reliance things are not so simple for the GPRS access.

Reliance offers two types of Internet services on their Post Paid GSM cards. First is Full GPRS/EDGE services through Reliance Netconnect Platform & the second is Reliance Mobile Internet which is technically more advance version of WAP services.

The Reliance Netconnect is basically accessed through the APN called RCOMNET. Its charged as per minute based plan rather than the usage based. The charges are 60 paise/minute in Peak hours & 30 paise/minute in Off Peak hours. Its a full fledged Internet service & its a TCP/IP connection. We can connect our phones to PC or Laptop to enjoy the Wireless Internet on the move. Also it does not feature any proxies. The speed I get in this plan is generally varies from 180 Kbps to 260 Kbps in Mumbai as well as in Pune. The biggest drawback of this plan is the COST STRUCTURE. When the charges are like 60 paisa / minute, means it is 36 Rupees / hour which is too high. Also the off peak rate is 18 Rupees / hour for night usage which starts after 10 pm.

Reliance GSM actually do not promote this service through their own Reliance World outlets which are Company managed. But as a subscriber of GSM Postpaid services of Reliance we can always use this APN RCOMNET. Also every Postpaid SIM card of Reliance comes with embedded settings for all 3 APNs, mainly for Rconnect, Reliance MMS & Reliance Mobile Internet (RelianceMBWorld).

The second service is called the “Reliance Mobile Internet” which is accessed through the APN RCOMWAP. Its basically a more advance version of WAP services. Now all of you will be curious to know more about it. Its basically a full fledge Internet but we can only access it on our Mobile Phones. It is not possible to connect our phone to PC or Laptop to use it as Wireless Internet like Rconnect facility. The service is filtered through a proxy which disables the TCP/IP protocol which requires for the PC. This Internet is basically using the HTTP Tunnel/Protocol. So basically all our phones which support HTTP Protocol can use this service. Now a days every GPRS enabled phone supports this protocol so no issues here.

Now lets see the cost structure/tariff plans here. There are few plans are available under this APN which are as follows. All these plans are latest plans as of today.

Default Plan 50 paisa / 1MB per session.
Daily Pass Rs.10  for 25 MB Data Cap

(24 Hrs Validity)

Unlimited (Auto Renewal) -Monthly Rs.299 in which Unlimited Downloading & Browsing Allowed without any Free Usage Policy (FUP).

-Monthly Rs.99 in which only unlimited Browsing is allowed & all data downloads will get charged as per the Default Plan.

Value Packs (Auto Renewal) Monthly Rs.199 / 750MB Data Cap

Monthly Rs.99 / 300MB Data Cap

In above plans after the free quota gets exceeded, charges will be 50 Paisa / 1MB per session.

I am currently using the Unlimited Plan 299 pack which is actually truly Unlimited without any FUP quota. But it can only be used in our Mobile Phones. Means we can not use it to have Wireless Internet for our Laptops. Now this connection is HTTP based, there are also some drawbacks attached to it. These are as follows.

DRAWBACKS OF “RCOMWAP APN” -:

1. Its HTTP based Internet Connection rather than Socket based connection. So all those Apps which require only Socket connection wont work. Examples: Many Push Email services Like Nokia Messaging Services, EMOZE Push Email, SEVEN Push Email. Also inbuilt email client in Nokia wont work, as it also requires the Socket Connection.

2. All Messenger application does not get connected due to HTTP Protocol. Nimbuzz, Fring, Ebuddy (which used to work earlier), Palringo does not work here as all require Socket based Connection to the Internet. The only exception here is the ROCKETALK application which is more than a multiprotocol messenger client. Check www.rocketalk.com

3. Some GPS Navigation apps dont work like Sygic Maps, etc.

Applications which work with this Internet Connection on RCOMWAP APN:

Before specifying you the application names, one thing I would like to tell you that all the applications which I have tested or I use are based or designed for Symbian Platform. As I am also a Symbian Beta Tester, I have maximum play with Symbian Smartphones like Nokia N97, Nokia N97 mini, Nokia N79, Nokia N86 8MP, Nokia 5800, Nokia N96, Nokia N95 8GB, Samsung Omnia I8910 HD 16GB, Samsung INNOV8 I8510 8MP 16GB etc. But I have also tested this Internet Connection on Windows Platform 6.5 & 6.1 Pro on mainly Samsung Omnia II I8000 8GB & HTC HD2.

Now applications which work with this APN RCOMWAP on Symbian Nokia & Samsung & Windows Platform 6.5, 6.1 Pro devices:-
Opera Mobile 10
Opera Mini 5
Gravity (Twitter Application)
Google Maps
Nokia Maps 2.0
Nokia OVI Maps 3.x
News Hunt by ETERNO INFOTECH for News paper reading
GARMIN GPS Navigation system
SNAPTU
GMAIL from Google
Orkut App from Google
Google Search by Google
Facebook Application by Nokia
ROCKETALK Social Messenger
160by2 web sms application.

So you will ask then whats the great advantage here? The biggest advantage is that all those smart-phones based on Symbian & Windows with full touch screen can enjoy full fledged Internet access that also in pretty high speed ranging from 180 Kbps to 290 Kbps (RCOMWAP APN, tested in Mumbai & Pune in various parts of both the cities).

I am using this connection currently on Nokia N97 mini & Samsung Omnia HD I8910 16GB. The real feat is when I got the instant connectivity under this APN while travelling Mumbai to Pune in Intercity Express. I was getting very high speeds around 220Kbps on average through my travel. The only exception when the Train was traveling in the Ghats Section from Khandala to Lonavla. I tested this connection for many times traveling in different trains for Mumbai to Pune travel & its works superbly.

People who want instant & blazing fast speeds on their Smartphones based on Symbian like Nokia 5233, 5230, 5800, N79, N96, N95, N82, N86, N97, N97mini, Nokia N900 (Maemo 5), Samsung Omnia HD; also non symbian touch screen phones like Samsung Jet, Samsung Corby series, LG Touch series & Windows Platforms like 6.5, 6.1 pro headsets can really enjoy this Internet connection more fruitfully. Basically every GPRS enabled phone can use this Reliance GSM Mobile Internet services but Smartphone users will enjoy more.

One more thing that Reliance has improved its Reception in GSM category in MUMBAI & PUNE at very exceptional speed & its one of the best Mobile Operator for the GSM services in the Country. All these above discussed Internet connections are also available on Reliance GSM Prepaid cards but I have not tested the same so can’t comment on it. Also once you have subscribed to any plans under Reliance GSM Mobile Internet services you get Pan India GPRS/EDGE services without any Roaming DATA charges wherever Reliance India GSM network is available. Currently Reliance GSM is available in 23 circles all over India.

    Reliance has the worst coverage in my area….How they are supposed to provide good 3g coverage if they don’t have a proper 2g coverage ;)
    Never rely on reliance…I have had many problems with automatic activations and balance deductions.
    BSNL is the best :)

  • AK October 28, 2010 9:24 am

    GOOD NEWS ! After lot of lot of efforts – I got the Reliance GSM NETCONNECT service – in pune. I tried the CCare for the service, but as stated above there was no proper responce. Then I got 99 plan ON from Rworld, there after again I called reliance GSM CCare and asked my plan is not working and u are charging me, they gave me complaint no. etc, I thought – this again will go in to messsss. But I got a call from theit centre – they activated my service – now NETCONNECT showe “E”-EDGE letter in the connection symbol. My push mail started working etc etc all is working… I think Rel CCare – purchased a nokia n97mini- did R&D and came back. Over to this – I confirmed on call – about how usage will be charged, they said – It will be under 99 plan only and no additional/different charges for NETCONNECT & WAP service. Let me take a month to find out this. Hope after a week I dont get a bill in large amounts…..

  • AK October 26, 2010 4:40 pm

    Using Push mail is not possiable for n97 mini on Reliance GSM, It wirked well for me on Idea GPRS. But reliance says they do not provide GPRS facility. Now what is further, change to !dea or other operator which provides GRPS!!
    Today I called CCare – they said I have GPRS 99 plan active – I had activated it on Rworld – when I asked where is service then – then – “we don’t have GPRS service” – I am confused with RGSM

    Hello All,

    Can any one let me know ‘Is it possible to use Fring via rcomwap?’

    If its possible then how to use it.

    I have Nokia N73 mobile, Reliance GSM connection, and activated both rcomwap and rcomnet service. What I have seen is Frings works with rcomnet which is very costly but it does not work with rcomwap (as written in this valuable article and from my experience).

    I want to use Fring via rcomwap (just to save my money).

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Amit

  • Dritesh May 5, 2010 8:19 pm

    Finally its posible to conect to pc through Rcomwap it is very easy.1)first conect to pc on rcomwap apn it is easy like rcomnet apn
    2)then go to Internet explorer and click tools>option>conection>double cick o ur modem(which u r curently conected ex.NOKIA **** USB MODEM)
    3)mark on proxy port field and fill it with 10.239.221.22 8080 and mark also on use bypass all which is neary under the porxy port field.
    and thats it now u can open all sites even it ssl suport like gmail orkut yahoo mail and download any kind and any size of file.

  • jatin March 30, 2010 3:33 pm

    i have been using reliance gsm for the last 1 year now.. i had lot of expectations abt the network considering the good quality of the reliance cdma network, but i must tell u that its not great at all.. the network keeps fluctuating.. its not good inside the buldings.. call drops are a regular feature.. no improvement yet.., pls comment..

    GAURAV :

    Raj :
    I am using LG KP500 (LG Cookie), RGSM GPRS/EDGE services just S**ks here in AP. Frequent “Connection failed” mesg annoys you to use RGSM GPRS service., More over
    RGSM GPRS services with APN is not working with any application like Opera Mini, Bolt Browser. When i called Customer Care PPl, they said that RGSM GPRS service work only with Inbuilt Browser. It wont work with Opera Mini kind of 3rd Paty Browsers.,
    Pls discuss about this issue.,

    Hello Raj,
    Applications which I have tested & mentioned in my Review as working apps actually works without any diff settings. Also Opera Mini 5 works very well. Only in Opera Mini 5 in advance settings u need to select the connection as HTTP.
    It shows that u have not read the review fully & calmly. In Mumbai I only get 2 APNs for Internet one which is RCOMNET & second is RCOMWAP. RCOMWAP is HTTP based but RCOMNET is full TCP/IP APN.
    Also there are issues with handsets like LG touch phones as these are based on the proprietary operating environment. I have clearly mentioned which handsets I have tested with these 2 APNs.
    Pls read it carefully. Thanks

    Dear Mr.Gaurav,
    Thanks for ur response & Comments. I want to tell u tat i commented after completly reading ur post & testing things on my mobile.

    1) I tested with HTPP option using Opera Mini, Unable to connect.
    2) I tried the same with Bolt Browser using Preferences option by selecting HTTP.
    3) Why should Reliance Customer care people should say that Browsers other than in Built browsers will not work for RGSM GPRS service.
    4) To confirm the same even i spoke to RGSM GPRS Techincal Team, they also confirmed that browsers other than inbuilt browsers or not supported for RGSM GPRS.

    Awaiting ur response., Thanks in advance !!!

    @vishal

    @vishal

    U idiot that link shows usb modem speed in both airtel and idea links. Where is the connection speed claim as u have mentioned and challenged the author? People like u r just nonsense. If you have debated on this modem speed then you are complete waste. Author is talking about the connection speed he is getting and not the modem speed. I also work in respected mnc mobile operator in mumbai. What author says can be possible because at a given time if users are very less occupied with data slots then its possible to get such high speeds. We are giving upto 300 kbps edge speeds in some parts of the country but that does not mean everytime you will get that speed.

    I can not belive u have debated with the author with this modem speed claim rather the author is saying about the speed he gets on that operator’s connection.
    U really wasted author’s time and our time to see whether what you are saying is right or you prove the author wrong.

    I think editor should take action against such idiot commenters like vishal.

    Hey gaurav, I really liked your review. You have mentioned every aspect about the plans as well as its drawbacks and plus points. Good work gaurav. Keep posting such reviews.

  • GAURAV March 29, 2010 10:51 pm

    @vishal

    If it does not matter to you what connection speed I get then its ur problem & not mine. What I have experienced I have mentioned there. Also I have clearly mentioned that its kilo bits per second. Apart from that these are actual download speeds in kilo bits per second at various places in Mumbai. If u have problem or doubt then its your issue & I cant help u out. Just because u have doubt or u feel it suspicious that does not change my experience with it. I have openly shared my experience with this connection with its advantages as well as disadvantages.

    Also when I have written this review the RCOMNET charges were 60 paise / minute only, because I had confirmed with Reliance World outlet in Mumbai which is closer to my residence. Its good that you have got the updated rates & you have shared with all of us. Updating the article is not my hand.

    Request to editor: Can u pls check Vishal’s claim taht RRCONNECT (RCOMNET APN) rate has changed to Rs. 2 / MB all over India? If it is true then please update the same. Thanks

    Also Mr. Vishal, I have written this review to share what experience I have with Reliance GSM Postpaid connection’s Mobile Internet services in Mumbai as well as in Pune & not to beat anyone’s knowledge or challenge anyone.

    Also even Airtel the No 1 operator in India does not claims or shows what speed they give on EDGE services on any legal document. Here I don’t need to show anyone what Reliance claims. But rather I have shared what speeds I have experienced.

    Rather if you have any link to show what RCOM claims on any document legally or any link on their site then pls give it to telecomtalk so they will post it & all of us will get knowledge on it.

    Rather keep challenging & keep doing criticism just because u don’t agree with it, I personally feel if you posses as you claim such a vast knowledge & experience then pls share with telecomtalk or with your own blog. That will help all of us including me to understand many things which we don’t know in a better way.

    Thanks and I am not going to reply any more to Mr. Vishal’s comments. I have lot of work to complete rather than just replying to his comments.

  • vishal March 29, 2010 7:51 pm

    @gaurav u should update this article ASAP bcoz rcomnet apn no longer charged by 60 paisa minute its 2 ruppes per mb now all over india, irrespective of time. u can confirm it by calling c.c

  • vishal March 29, 2010 7:47 pm

    @ gaurav it dosent matter what connction speed ur gettin, the thing only matter is real time download speed of different types of files of different size which gettin downloaded in specific time slot which u never specified in ur article and that thing is suspicious. and that 236 kbps speed is true to indian mobile network providers. if possible post or show legal link of rcom which claims that speed can lies beatween 220 to 260kbps. dont go on my knowledge i will beat u anytime on that. its my open challenge to u.

    well on 28th there was some work going on many cell sites in Mumbai for better reception by Reliance GSM team.

  • GAURAV March 29, 2010 6:49 pm

    @vishal

    Buddy technology is already implemented by Huwai in China for 512 Kbps speeds over EDGE on on diff Mobile operators in China. The wikipedia links are not always updated.

  • GAURAV March 29, 2010 6:43 pm

    @vishal

    already given reply to ur query. pls check on page 4 of comments.

  • GAURAV March 29, 2010 6:41 pm

    vishal :
    @ author can u explain that 220 kbps to 290kbps speed in detail is it real downloading speed? bcoz gsm edge not support speed beyond 236 kbps, then how do get 290 kbps speed? r u mad?

    hello Vishal

    The mentioned speed are connection speeds which are measured in Kilo bits per second. Its not download speed. Download speed is measured in Kilo Bytes per Second. U have to just divide the mentioned speed by 8. Bcoz 8bits = 1Kilo Byte. Yes these are true speeds which are measured by special USB modems from Huwai which can give u upto 512Kbps connection speeds. Also these modems works on both type of connections means Socket as well as HTTP. Reliance uses compression techniques in Mumbai as well in Pune for its RCOMWAP APN. Whatever I have said has documentry proofs. Without confirming anything from the company I do not mention it anywhere.

    Also all latest FWs in Nokia Symbian smartphones which are mentioned in my article including the Samsung Omnia HD can give you modem speeds upto 512 Kbps. When u say GSM EDGE can not support more than 236kbps speeds that only shows ur thorough knowledge about the technology used in current days for EDGE. The 236 kbps is average modem speeds always mentioned in Nokia Phone’s specifications but that does not mean that u can not get speeds more than that. With latest FW (FirmWares)all these companies keep updating their phone modem drivers & this changes their ability o handle diff speeds. These modems which are used inside the symbian, windows smartphones are bit diff than the modems we use for our PCs.

    Currently Nokia N97 mini with its latest FW 11 can give u upto 384 kbps speeds.

  • Abhijit March 29, 2010 4:23 pm

    After reading this article, I think many have shifted to RGSM as it has cheapest default plan in RCOMWAP APN at 50ps/1MB compare to other operators…. That is why from yesterday onwards I m getting slow speed while surfing ,comparatively before..

  • vishal March 29, 2010 3:20 pm

    @ akash . EDGE can carry a bandwidth up to 236.8 kbit/s (with end-to-end latency of less than 150 ms) for 4 timeslots (theoretical maximum is 473.6 kbit/s for 8 timeslots) in packet mode. This means it can handle four times as much traffic as standard GPRS. EDGE meets the International Telecommunications Union’s requirement for a 3G network, and has been accepted by the ITU as part of the IMT-2000 family of 3G standards. It also enhances the circuit data mode called HSCSD, increasing the data rate of this service. EDGE is part of ITU’s 3G definition and is considered a 3G radio technology

Uninor is about to launch some good GPRS plans & all its towers are EDGE enabled & they use best equipments.

    in my location reliance give speed of 256kbps max & 153kbps min

  • Rajarshi March 28, 2010 1:34 pm

    RGSM’s (apn:rcomwap) prepaid connection has just 6-10kbps speed in west bengal.
