Tata Docomo Removes Capping on 2G Data Plans in 2G Only Circles

Tata Docomo Gprs CappingAfter the intense competition and low tariff days are over, operators are slowing hiking the 2G tariff. This tariff revision is not only for voice but also seen on data segment.

Almost all operators cut down bundled usage on their 2G plans – Airtel, Vodafone and Idea are now offering just 1GB data for Rs 98, Aircel withdraws unlimited 2G pocket internet pack to favor their FUP enabled 3G unlimited plans.

Even BSNL, Tata Docomo and Uninor cut the bundled data usage on most of plans. Reliance does not cut down usage on 2G plans, but they make it in a way something unusable – they cap 2G plans at just 64kbps (still better, as Airtel offers unlimited 2G – after 2GB it’s just 40kbps) as if people may shift to 3G after getting pathetic experience of Reliance 2G.

Interestingly I find something very unusual from Tata Docomo, atleast in Kolkata. Earlier they used to cap the 2G SIMs at 128kbps in Kolkata. I have talked with some Tata Docomo officials, but none of them couldn’t give me a proper explanation of this capping considering in Kolkata Tata Docomo does not offer 3G services.

Some days back I found that Tata Docomo removes that data capping on 2G SIMs in Kolkata as I checked this with three different SIM cards of Tata Docomo GSM. Now the data cap is 472kbps downlink and uplink both.

Tata docomo 2G QoS Kolkata

Virgin Mobile 2G QoS Kolkata

It seems Tata Docomo likes to offer good 2G data services in 2G only circles. I like to see some feedback from TT readers who are from Tata Docomo’s 3G circles regarding the capping status of Tata Docomo. Please use Huawei modem and MDMA to check this speed cap.

Also I find that there is little glitch to connect to Tata Docomo 2G network for internet access. As soon as you recharge a internet pack, the connection may not be established instantly. You have to wait for a while to connect to internet. Data card users can unplug and re-plug the dongle to resolve the issue. You may also see errors (628 & 619) while connecting, just keep redialing for some times it will be connected.

    2) Uninor
    Rate-wise both the operators have same recharge options.
    So please tell me which is better in terms of COVERAGE & NETWORK QUALITY in Kolkata and its suburbs.
    Which one should I go for IDEA or UNINOR?

    I am using BSNL sim (Haryana) in Delhi’s MTNL network in 3G Mode. Recharged with Rs 301 & got 8GB for 60 days validity. It works suberb rather than other private operator. Constantly getting above 200 kbps & downloading speed of above 25kbps. I tried all private operators but no operator dare to give such speed. Few moths back vodafone had the speed of 200-250 kbps but now it seems that it had capped the speed to 128kbps.

  • Jagannath October 9, 2012 11:53 am

    Docomo, the minority foram. Not a single value plan which attracts customers. And there net packs are usually pocket friendly but all time regarding ‘connection failed’ ‘error’ this type of notification. Speed 1-2kbps. Don’t want it…

  • thiyagu October 9, 2012 11:52 am

    hai for 2 years i m using docomo . past 2 months my download speed increased. its range between 15 kbps to 35 kbps. youtube streaming very good . no delay in streaming. 2g speed super.

  • TELETALK October 9, 2012 11:13 am

    tata docomo gprs speed is good in gujarat i check in statistics its go at 250 kbps and i check download speed is 20 kbps to 25 kbps but speed is not stable its very up down constantly but i use reliance gsm 2g great speed its 29kbps to 30 kbps constantly no up down and surfing experience is also great…..

  • anup October 9, 2012 10:54 am

    In up west tata docomo caps its speed to 128 kbps for 2g user. Its lot better than other 2g players in the circle. right now I am using aircel 2g and it gives me pathetic speed of 40 kbps.

  • Arup October 9, 2012 7:45 am

    In my area Virgin(GSM) is just great.OK lets explain its greatness —

    Sim Price-Rs.45[Talk time{main balance}-Rs.25][Call rate-V to V & tata-10p/m,V to O-40p/m{daytime},night-V to V & tata-1p/m][sms-25p/sms,STD-60p/m][Tariff validity-6 months][Internet- 500 mb per month for six month].
    Network is far better than uninor and aircel,I get 23-35 KB/sec downloading speed.
    If Virgin gsm is available in your area then try it.

  • G Badavaraj Gandi October 9, 2012 5:35 am

    @Ramesh Darji
    @ RAMESH – why are you experimenting – just use TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNET which is the old/existing apn, it will work.

    Dear RP thanks for sharing information. I am fan to TT since its launch and good post you are posting for telecom. But sometimes needed information does not comes. In previous article, I have mentioned that I am not able to use New APN, tata.docomo.internethvc with 250 recharge. I am not able to connect with my 2 sim where I have recharged both with 250 in gujarat but it is working for my some friends. there is lot of confusion. when called to customer care, they told that it can be used only for mobile and not dongle but I am not even able to connect with my Micromax A60 handset. My friend able to connect thru dongle also in gujarat. After recharge of 250 I was not able to connect, so after 5 days I have recharged with Rs. 4 thru paytm and I got 1GB 3G data though it is withdrawn and I am able to use the same with old APN TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNET.
    I cant still understand, why it is not working with new APN to my number. Let me know in case you have any details or answer.

  • Rudradeep October 8, 2012 12:54 pm

    To everyone

    I used MDMA to get the neotiated QoS. I know that MDMA can be fooled, as the data shown here may not be always perfect considering real time experience. But capping from 128kbps to 472kbps is always better, though on 2G you will never get more than 240kbps – in real time it is around 180kbps.

    on MDMA there are many modes you can do for checking the capping.
    3G activated, 3G network selected –
    3G activated, 2G network selected -
    2G activated, 2G/3G network selected –

    for eg I found that BSNL on 3G/3G – 8640/8120, 3G/2G – 240/240, 2G/2Gor3G – 128/128

    @Saurabh also here in Kolkata Virgin GSM was never capped. I find that Aircel generally caps speed at 3.6/7.2Mbps on all SIMs – but without activation of 3G, your 3G access will not be happen. On 2G even your capping is at 7.2Mbps you will get around 180-200kbps in general.

    Here is the status for other operators-

    1. Idea- If you activate 2G pack and 3G zero rental is active, speed caps to 128Kbps. If you de-activate 3G zero rental and only 2.75G is active speed cap at 256Kbps and it practically provides over 220-250Kbps here in my town.

    3G network Negotiated QoS with 3G pack active- 21000Kbps.

    2. Vodafone- 2G network speed cap- 256Kbps and practically always over 220Kbps while downloading. Surfing is also good. Latching is not allowed on 3G network with 2G packs. With 3G pack active Negotiated QoS is 21000Kbps.

    3. BSNL/Airtel- Negotiated QoS- 240/472Kbps and GPRS only network with practical speed 20-40Kbps. No EDGE, No 3G on BSNL. Airtel with 2G pack and latched on Idea 3G network- 80Kbps. Airtel 3G pack latched on Idea- 7232Kbps.

    4. Reliance- Negotiated QoS with 2G pack active- 256Kbps. Practically 100-220Kbps but fluctuates too much ever near the BTS. Reliance used to be consistent at over 230Kbps here but since May, it’s gone.

    @sakthi
    2G PACK ON 3G MODE MEAN, IF U RECHARGE WITH ANY 2G INTERNET PACK AND SURF THE INTERNET ON 3G NETWORK( 3G MODE )…..I.E WE USE 2G DATA PACK OF BSNL AND SURF INTERNET ON BSNL 3G MODE…

    Hi soumo, what is “2G PACK ON 3G MODE “..

  • Saurabh October 8, 2012 12:02 pm

    @Rudradeep,

    It’s not that speed capping is removed in 2G only circles. I’m from Haryana and Docomo has 3G license here though 3G is not available yet in my town. From February this year, the Negotiated QoS in MDMA with Tata Docomo is 472Kbps. Until then MDMA used to show 128Kbps but even after that we used to get speed between 200-240Kbps and that’s why I posted here that MDMA can or can’t be correct. So you should also check it with Mobile Partner or your connection status to know exact speed. Also, there is no connection problem also. You can use instantly after activation. No errors after activation.

    As far as Virgin GSM is concerned, Tata has never ever capped speed for Virgin users in Haryana. Since launch Negotiated QoS is 472Kbps and speed is same as network is same. Besides this Aircel is also using Tata’s network here and Negotiated QoS on Aircel with Tata network is also 472Kbps though practically speed is between 180-240Kbps.

    So Tata Docomo/Virgin/T24/Aircel all shows 472Kbps in Negotiated QoS in Haryana and speed is also same atleast in my area but as far as consistency is concerned, Aircel is better as sometimes download stops on Tata Docomo SIM.

    When I select Aircel’s own network MDMA shows 8640Kbps in Negotiated QoS i.e no capping by Aircel too but practically speed is 132-150Kbps only. So I prefer Aircel SIM with network latched to Tata Docomo GSM in Haryana. :)

    @rudra
    which software have you used here ?

  • Kanchan October 8, 2012 11:54 am

    MDMA’s negotiated QoS can be fooled by operators. Airtel and Idea doing this for a while their QoS shows 472 and 256 respectively but actual speed is not more than 55kbps. If u want to know whether speed is being capped or not watch statistics graphs of Dashboard. When u see downloading going like a straight line your speed is definitely being capped

    Tata Docomo Photon Is Very goods service

  • soumo October 8, 2012 11:43 am

    SECONDLY I NEED TO ASK WHETHER IT IS POSSIBLE TO GET SPEED( DATA CAP-472, WHICH MEAN DOWNLOAD SPEED WILL BE 30-40KB/SEC IN 2G). KOLKATA USER PLEASE CHECK IF U GETTING THE SAME SPEED ON 2G… PLEASE REPLY……….. PLUS RELIANCE HAS STOPPED CAPPING THE SPEED. SPEED CAPPED TO 128KBPS( SPEED- 12-17 KB/SEC( 2G PACK ON 3G MODE ))..

    Dear RP thanks for sharing information. I am fan to TT since its launch and good post you are posting for telecom. But sometimes needed information does not comes. In previous article, I have mentioned that I am not able to use New APN, tata.docomo.internethvc with 250 recharge. I am not able to connect with my 2 sim where I have recharged both with 250 in gujarat but it is working for my some friends. there is lot of confusion. when called to customer care, they told that it can be used only for mobile and not dongle but I am not even able to connect with my Micromax A60 handset. My friend able to connect thru dongle also in gujarat. After recharge of 250 I was not able to connect, so after 5 days I have recharged with Rs. 4 thru paytm and I got 1GB 3G data though it is withdrawn and I am able to use the same with old APN TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNET.

    I cant still understand, why it is not working with new APN to my number. Let me know in case you have any details or answer.

    SEEMS GOOD FOR KOLKATA USER. BUT NOT GOOD FOR ME. IN DURGAPUR( BURDWAN) TATA DOCOMO IS USING AIRCEL SIGNAL.. NO NEWTORK HERE. DONT KNOW HOW LONG TATA DOCOMO WILL USE AIRCEL SIGNAL…
