MTS to Roll Out RevB Ultra Services in Kolkata and Cities

After receiving 3rd carrier on 800MHz band and unified licenses MTS India is in full swing to upgrade their existing high speed data network.

In Kolkata MTS is ready to roll out its RevB services, MBlaze Ultra. I found these Ultra dongles available on their retail showrooms.

It can be noted that MTS India is the world’s first operator to roll out Evdo rev b phase 2 network, which can deliver upto 9.8Mbps downlink. Tata Photon Max uses rev b phase 1 technology to support upto 6.2Mbps downlink.

Currently MTS has two devices – Ultra dongle (ZTE AC2792) and a Ultra MiFi device, priced Rs 1299 and 2199 for prepaid and postpaid respectively.

For Bundled offer, new prepaid customers need to pay Rs. 1399 to get an MBlaze Ultra dongle along with 10 GB data usage with 30 day validity. While existing postpaid MBlaze customers can get an MBlaze Ultra dongle by paying just Rs. 750 with complete cash back as an up-grade offer.

MTS Ultra tariff plans

Hopefully there are similar developments are going on in all other cities where MTS is present.

Update;  MTS India has presented this service in the Market as 3GPLUS network (Evdo Rev B Phase II), the network coverage of 3GPLUS network will be available across all its 9 circles of operations i.e. Delhi, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kolkata, Uttar Pradesh (West) and West Bengal.

With most 3G BTS powered by HSPA 7.2Mbps by private 3G/GSM operators, MTS will certainly have the edge over them with Ultra services.

    I had a Mblaze 2G dongle. I was promised 3.1mbps but I got 300kbps only sometimes.
    All the other times I got 200& below. Here it says in 3G Mblaze will deliver 9.8 mbps but I dont know that they will keep up their promise.

    rs 1498 for 20gb means rs75/gb… but rs800 for 5gb means rs160/gb ! if they can offer rs75/gb, why not for small users? one customer cosuming 20gb and 20 customers consuming 1gb each, whats the difference to the seller, (MTS)? if they offer rs75 for 1gb for 1month, a boost is usage will also be seen… they can also sell 20 dongles to lock 20 customers. what kind of sells department are they depending upon?

      Fine proposal with explanation.

      Very good commend, MTS should reduce the data price to get popularity in India.

    Still Pathetic EDGE and 1X Service Provide by the Operator.Where there is not any presence of EVDO/3G whereas wi-max is there and price also skyhigh.

    Everage Customer side need 100/GB(+/-),then customer can enjoy the benefiet.How many operator will comes to see Price Vs Speed Vs User Experience&Customer Pocket.

    The problem is the initial investment for dongle. To overcome that their plans need to be cheaper than GSM which is not viable for them.

    20 GB @ Rs. 1498/- is very costly at a speed of 9.8 mbps…20 GB is will be finished in one or two weeks after normal usage (including YouTube videos surfing). They should provide 100 GB atleast @ Rs. 1500/-.

    MTS should ideally use all three carriers of 1.25MHz to offer EVDO RevB Phase 2 services upto 14.7 Mbps and become a pure play Data operator instead of wasting one carrier on voice services which are not popular on the CDMA platform despite of the enhanced voice clarity. Data is their only hope for survival in the market provided they offer low tariffs.

    • Rudradeep Biswas October 25, 2013 1:04 pm

      As they have their voice customers, right now they can not use all 3 carriers for data.
      They are looking for continuous 5MHz on 800MHz and will go for LTE.

      There are also reports that MTS India started LTE trials!

    By the end of 2014 there will be 8 operators offering 3G services in every circle maybe 9 if DOT auctions the AWS 1700MHz band as well, and all of these will offer cut throat tariffs to stay in the game with the increased competition, an end user having an unlocked 3G dongle can easily pop in the sim of any operator of his choice and get the desired services. In such times MTS will still be offering locked EVDO RevB data cards with primitive sky high tariffs, and even if it offers phase 2 9.8 Mbps, the 3G operators will be offering 21.1 Mbps. Wonder who will invest in buying these Ultra crappy data cards. And as far as free data roaming goes once the GSM operators become Pan India 3G operators even they will provide free national data roaming.

      If Reliance Jio comes with cheaper data plan, MTS will be compelled to follow the suit !!

    Waste of spectrum.

    BSNL upgrade it’s 3G BTSs to 14Mbps in Kerala.

  • chandr October 23, 2013 10:21 am

    These are of no use with high tariffs.
