Tata Photon plus, EVDO based wireless high speed internet access service (HSIA) from Tata Teleservices introduces new prepaid data plans.
Tata Photon plus prepaid plans also includes some unlimited plans, not in true sense as after certain usage on high speed internet speed will be lowered down to 1X speed.
Now Photon+ prepaid packs are starting at most affordable Rs 100. Photon Plus also has unlimited postpaid plans.Tata photon plus’s Huawei-made USB modem is priced at Rs 2399, a little bit higher than MTS or Reliance’s ZTE modem of Rs 2299.
Tata Photon plus can deliver maximum download speed of 3.1Mbps and upload speed of 1.8Mbps – in real experience speed remains around maximum 2Mbps which is enough for on-move internet access.
Every Photon+ Prepaid activation includes 1GB free data usage for 30 days. There is also a first recharge coupon of Rs 300 that will give you 4GB data usage for 30 days.

Another EVDO player of market, MTS Mblaze offering 12GB at high speed for 30 days at Rs 999, keeping this in mind Tata Photon plus prepaid plans are overcharged, stay away from this if you are a high data user. But those are occasional user & requires all India roaming can choose Tata Photon plus. Currently MTS is present in 11 circles with HSIA services (except Andra Pradesh)
It is really disappointing that while BSNL reduced its true unlimited data pack tariff on 3G enabled high speed wireless GSM network, and offering unlimited data on EVDO at just Rs 750/month private CDMA operators are showing no sign of being a partner of data revolution in India.
