MTS Launches EVDO Data Plans for Mobile Customers

MTS Launches EVDO Data Plans for Mobile CustomersContinuing the commitment to data segment, MTS India – the voice and data service provider on CDMA technology brings most exciting data plans for its mobile subscribers.

So wait is over for MTS customers, who were waiting for plans for using internet on mobile. It should be noted that MTS has launched many data enabled CDMA handsets – most of them are supported with EVDO Rev A (3.1 Mbps downlink/1.8 Mbps uplink).

Many users move to GSM operators because of GPRS offerings as there is no dedicated data plan from CDMA operators for accessing internet on mobile. The new data plans from MTS are currently available in Kolkata, West Bengal and some selected circles.

The best parts of these plans are you will have EVDO access, not slow 1x access at best price, and can tether with PC via USB or Bluetooth.

Here are the STVs for Data Browsing to MTS Mobile Customers:

Recharge Value Bundled Data Validity Extra usage, post-validity usage
Rs 4.99 15 MB Plan Expire exact after (+)23:59 hrs, from time it has been activated. 10p/10kB
Rs 7.99 30 MB Plan Expire exact after (+)47:59, from time it has been activated. 10p/10kB
Rs 31.99 200 MB 7 days 10p/10kB
Rs 97.99 2 GB 30 days 10p/10kB

To activate the plans, you have to fulfill the following:

  • CDMA handset (EVDO supported) with MTS OMH RUIM Card. In case you are buying MTS Net phone (Ivory, Buzz and Alive) in Kolkata & WB, you will get OMH RUIM with 10 GB EVDO data per month for 2 months with FRC. If you take only OMH RUIM with out MTS branded phone, you will not get this data benefit.  In Delhi and Mumbai you can have 10 GB EVDO data per month for 2 months with OMH RUIM and selected FRC.
  • EVDO activation by sending VASACT<space>HSD to 51230 (TOLL FREE).

Recharge can be done via e-recharge from retailers.For any help call MTS Customer Care 155 from your MTS Mobile.

    Wow Welcome move from MTS. This is the plans all the CDMA users are waiting for long time. Those use-LESS(especially for data plans) Reliance and Tata Indicom should offer these plans in their network for the sickened CDMA data users in India.
    Thanks MTS. Also please expand your network.

  • Bharat September 12, 2011 11:49 am

    “more or less comparable to gsm 3g plans”???

    What a joke mate?can u explain,which gsm 3g operator in india giving 2gb high speed data @97.99 INR at both handset n in teathering to pc mode???

  • Avishek Ghosh September 12, 2011 9:08 am

    @palash

    MTS does not blocking any 3rd party application..i am able to use all 3rd party apps i.e. Opera,bolt,nimbuzz etc with mts connection in both of my samsung handsets i.e. Galaxy pop cdma n metro tv..
    I think ur problem is due to samsung handsets..sometime samsung cdma n dual gsm+cdma handsets have this types of problem,i earlier faced this problem in my duos 169 with the gsm connection(in that set,only uninor sim supports internet on 3rd party app but other operators sim card does not)..
    So i am sure that their is no problem frm mts end..
    Check ur handsets in service center to sort out this problem..

  • rajiev September 12, 2011 7:32 am

    nice startin!its gud for health
