Tata Photon Plus Now With Unlimited Plans, FUP Applicable

Tata Photon Plus, pioneer in Wireless Internet EVDO services today launched three new ‘Unlimited Internet Plans‘ with Fare Usage Policy (FUP) on data cap of 5GB, 10 GB and 15GB for its postpaid customers across India.

Recently another EVDO service provider, MTS introduces unlimited EVDO Plan at just Rs999 for a period of 30 days, with a fine print of 15 GB at EVDO speeds and then you can continue enjoying your Internet services, but with a much slower speed of 1X (153.6Kbps).

Following the way out done by MTS, Tata Teleservices brings the same thing to new and existing customers of Photon+. At present Huawei-made Tata Photon+ USB Modem is sold at Rs2399 and if you are committed to their postpaid plans for 12 months, you will get discounts worth Rs200 every month i.e. full refund of your modem price.

Tata Photon+ Unlimited Postpaid Plans:

Plan Name Monthly Rental Hi-speed EVDO Usage (Free) Beyond free usage Discount for 1st 12 months
Photon+ Mega 5GB Unlimited Rs 950 5 GB Unlimited usage at 153.6 kbps (1X) Rs 200 per month
Photon+ Power Surf Unlimited Rs 1100 10 GB
Photon+ Super Surf Unlimited Rs 1500 15 GB

* up to 3.1Mbps downlink, upto 1.8Mbps uplink

Recent market trends show operators are bringing plans with ‘Unlimited’ tag which is offering a certain usage limit at high speed and then you can continue accessing internet at low speed. Analysts says that actually a few people require unlimited at high speed without any FUP. But for general users these plans are good, as even if you cross free usage of high speed Internet, you can still connect to Internet, though at slower speed and you don’t need to pay extra.

Regarding the comparison between Tata Photon+ & MTS MBlaze’s so-called Unlimited plan, MTS is offering cheaper tariff and that comes for prepaid users, while Tata Photon+ ‘Unlimited’ plans are available on Postpaid customers only, and at higher price. You with MTS can get 15GB high speed data usage and then unlimited at 1X speed (144 Kbps) at Rs999 while same package comes from Tata Photon+ at Rs 1500, and add services taxes on the bill at the end of month!

But thinking about roaming facility over India, Tata Photon+ coverage is better than MTS.

To get a Tata Photon+ connection, visit nearest Tata Indicom shoppe/hub where you can check out it. There is a toll free customer care number 1800-266-121 exclusively for Tata Photon+ customers.

    Actually tata photon provides good speed….and it is really helpful for those areas where people need internet connection for their work and they cud n’t go for low cost solution bcoz of poor quality of n/w(like bsnl,vodafone,aircel etc)….bt one thing i must say is dat cost is EXTREMELY high….so plz reduce the minimum recharge amount and increase d amount of data usage also….so that dis product ll b very popular dan other

  • Sip July 7, 2011 11:40 pm

    nah..
    I will stick with bsnl broadband unlimited adsl wired
    what’s the point in going to wireless internet if
    u r going to just double the price,
    hello! there’s no wires, why r u charging us for something invisible
    & don’t broadcast ad saying upto 33mbps download speed when its always lie
    u damned indians, when your download speed hardly reach 80kb/s
    bsnl 256kbps (32kb/s) unlimited wired is RS 499/- month (cheap but they should reduce 100 RS atleast)
    tata photon 256kbps unlimited should be Rs 250/ month. why its not?
    at this rate Indians will always remain worst ISP’s

  • Abhinav Sharma October 28, 2010 5:27 pm

    TATA is cheating each & every existing customer.I have been using the 10 GB plan from last 8 months and wanted to shift to the unlimited plan when they were introduced.But I was disappointed to know that I couldn’t subscribe to those plans as they were exclusively for new customers.Is this the reward I am getting for being loyal with the Tatas ????
    Kindly help me out with saome legal remedies against this discrimination.

  • Prasad Reddy October 26, 2010 7:55 pm

    TATA is a great brand in India…one of the most trusted companies in India …
    Its ok if we get around 200kbps if it were promised 3.1 Mbps… we believe and trust TaTa at all times ..becoz its a friendly and helpful company to the poor and needy .. I wont hesitate to pay more money to the company even the services are less than promised …
    Hats off to Ratan TATA for doing great services to the beloved country INDIA ..

  • K.Hanso October 19, 2010 2:16 am

    Very true @madhu prasad i’m also using the free 5gb unlimited internet for Rs. 950 a month and trust me it sucks big time. This was my case when i first got the photon+ my connection was so slow that most of the time i could’nt even open pages i contacted C.C but could’nt fix my problem like they gave me instructions to delete temp files and so on but no help so they sent me their so called professional technician but all he did was just opened the website “www.speedtest.net” and that was it and told me he’ll reset the tower and increase the bandwidth but did’nt work and finally they said they’ll provide me an external antenna and even after the installation of the antenna it did’nt work i mean how can it possibly work you should see the antenna you’ll immediately start laughing its just a piece of junk there is no jack to connect the photon usb external antenna socket and no amplifier and now my patience were running out since there was no solution what so ever but sadly i did’nt have a choice because i needed a mobile broadband for my work but fortunately i have a friend who is a computer engineer i told him about my problem and yes!! he came to my place fixed it with an external antenna and the speed went up (1mb+) i was so happy i was showing off my speed to all my friends streaming videos and downloading was a piece of cake but my joy did’nt last long i soon found out that my free 5gb were all used up in just 5 to 6 days now i get speed only upto 150kbps and thought of upgrading to the other 10gb and 15gb plan but does’nt make sense i know i can afford it but its not worth it i wish only a complete unlimited plan would be available soon then tata photon+ will definitely be the best and favorite for the people.

  • sadat October 16, 2010 12:27 am

    i m also getting pathetic download speed for this crap tata photon .it fluctuates between 20 50 100 kbps and never goes beyond that. Downloading a 1gb file is a nightmare and there technicians and custommer care r just boneheaded incompetents tata should either eliminate this photon internet system and bring more stable optical fiber connectivity system which has zero loss of bandwidth or just stick ti mobile services and not to ISPs becoz they suck big time in internet services.

  • madhu prasad October 9, 2010 3:31 pm

    TATA Photon Plus mobile broadband says that it provide unlimited internet for Rs 950 a month, with a speed upto 3.1 mbps but the truth is something different.
    The photon plus speed is nice but practically it never touches 3.1 mbps. It just remain around 1 mbps. In unlimited plan you get only 5 GB of data usage. Post that the speed promised is 153.6 kbps. Now see the 5 GB data usage last for only around 10 days. Everyone opt for broadband for videos playback and video chat hence the 5 GB limit get finished within 10 days. Post that the speed given is around 150 kbps on which forget about videos one cannot make even voice calls. Even leave voice call even surfing web gets so slow that you cant even check mail quickly. You have to wait and wait for HTML pages to open.

    Indian Government says for an internet connection to be called as broadband the minimum speed has to be 256 kbps.

    We get broadband speed for just around 33% of the month, 67% of the month we are using speed of a dial up connection.

    Now does TATA’s Photon Plus so called mobile broadband can be called a broadband?
    TRAI need to step in and make sure that the operators dont misssell the product. I do feel that Fair Usage Policy is good to keep an eye on useless cunsumption for commercial purpose, but a cap of 5 GB is just a pinch of salt. It needs to be not less than 20 GB a month plus post usage the minimum speed should need to be 512 kbps or if less than definately not less than 256 kbps.

    This is Totally CHEATING.

    Theoretically Internet is free. There are suppose to be no charge but only for connection and maintainance, operators(ISP)are suppose to charge.

    We are paying 10 times higher price for 10 times lower speed.

    ……………………….WAKE UP CONSUMER WAKE UP………………………

  • Nihar October 5, 2010 12:51 pm

    I also have a TATAProton Plus Unlimited Plan. The Speed never reaches > 1Mbps. Sometimes it is so pathetic it is < 100 kbps. How Tata is chaging Rs 1100 promising a speed of 3.1 Mbps. This a clear case of cheating by TATAs

  • Sanjeev Kulshreshtha September 29, 2010 3:53 pm

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I’m writing this last email to summarize the services and customer
    care rendered to me by Tata Indicom for their photon+ product in last
    couple of month.
    1. I am using Mobile GPRS on my PC which provide enough speed to
    browse email etc. I had searched lots of broadband service and
    considered photon+ for my broadband needs.
    2. It was informed to me that photon+ works on the Hi Speed Internet
    Access Net which available 24 hours and delivers upto 3.1 Mbps
    bandwidth.
    3. Now when I approached customer care, it was informed that it is
    only connectivity speed and actual speed available is fluctuate
    between 256 Kbps to 600 Kbps. It shows how false product promotion is
    being done.
    4. Before subscribing phton+, I was confirmed by customer care that
    there is no signal problem in Delhi NCR. However if there is, it will
    be resolved by the dedicated team of technical engineers.
    5. I asked about the unlimited tariff plan but none was available in
    Phton+. Thus I opted 1GB @650 plan.
    6. Since day one of subscribing I was, facing the bandwidth problem. I
    was unable to browse Google homepage or even connect to Network
    whenever I required mostly in morning and evening.
    7. I had registered the complaint through my web account against which
    I had received calls from customer care and inform that some
    additional device will be installed. But no one had turn up.
    8. When I checked the status of my complaint in September I come to
    know there is no record of my complaint in my web account.
    9. Again I had register the complaint through me web account and
    through email also. The thread of correspondence is attached herewith.
    10. I come to know that Tata has introduced the unlimited plan @950
    with cap of 5GB after which speed will be reduced. My usage was
    increasing for which Customer care had informed on asking that some
    updater software consumes the usage. Thus I opted 5GB@950.
    11. After activation of this plan I received the sms that my usage is
    limited to 5GB than charges will be applicable as per tariff.
    12. I’m surprised and contact customer care, and same was confirmed to
    me that there is no unlimited plan.
    13. Than I captured the web image about the plan which is attached herewith.
    14. During this my credit limit which was set to 2500/- has crossed
    and my account was put to inactive.
    15. I have contacted to customer care and I asked to get in touch with
    Team Leader of Customer care. But I was informed that lines are busy
    and put a call back request and advise me that I’ll receive the call
    within three hours. I’m not sure whether this call back request is
    open or closed. But I haven’t received any call.
    16. Next day again I approach the customer care and rigid to talk TL.
    After a long waiting I come to able to talk TL Mr. Nitish who had
    promised to call me within 5 minutes after checking the issue as the
    system is working very slow. After 3 hours I had again contact and
    approach to Mr. Nitish and come to know that he is still working on my
    issue. But the call is still awaited.
    17. I had tried to contact Nodal officer and Appellate Authority, But
    I’m surprised, either phone remain busy or number not available in
    business hours and phone remain unanswered after business hours.
    18. I had asked about the steps taken to resolve my problem and
    contact details of some of the officials of Tata Photon+ But the mail
    was unreplied till yet.
    Now my connection is inactive and Tatas are unable to act on any
    inactive connection and I’m rigid to pay my bills only after the
    resolution of my complaint. I have a simple plea that when I register
    my two complaints my connection was active and all of complaints are
    closed without my consent. It is not the solution that phone is not
    answered. However I’m writing continuous emails. Before photon+ I was
    using mobile GPRS, I also used mobile GPRS when phton+ not worked. So
    there is no problem to use mobile GPRS when Photon+ is inactive.
    I already had spent handsome money on purchase of photon+, there is no
    reason for payment defaults as I haven’t use the services of Tatas as
    much as I paid. So again I pay my bills only after resolution of
    complaint and Tatas are not entitled to bare my services.
    I’ll protest in appropriate forum against services rendered by Tatas,
    expenses incurred in calling customer care, false advertising and the
    harassment caused to me.

    @Madhumita Sen
    currently EVDO is Cheap one comparing to 3G.. but EVDO have limited coverage cos operators not upgrading there Network…
    3G right now only BSNL have 3G network tariff is OK… have wait till other operator jump in 3G market Then only we hope 3G data rates get low…

    if your Area cover BSNL EDVO network then i prefer EDVO instead of 3G cos UL EDVO just @ Rs 750 you will get speed atlest 1.5MB DL and UPL of 1.2MB

  • Madhumita Sen August 27, 2010 11:45 am

    BSNL EVDO & BSNL 3G thousand time better then this tata photon

    Which one is better, bsnl 3G or EVDO ?

  • Rudradeep Biswas August 27, 2010 10:44 am

    @narumanchianji
    BSNL has lowest EVDO coverage, thats y people moving to private operators.
    BSNL 1x netwrk is better than them, but who like to stick to slower 1x! BSNL has to do lot of work to cover india with its EVDO !

  • narumanchianji August 27, 2010 10:32 am

    i am using bsnl evdo for the last 2 years and enjoying truely unlimited net @ 2.4mhz. the actual frequency varies between 500kb to 2020kb based on actual demand of downloading requirement. it is the truely cheapest evdo in india with truely unlimited internet. it is hightime that bsnl gives this evdo based on cdma 1x 2000 wide publicity, since it has countrywide roaming facilty which is most suited for laptops which are progressively taking over from desktops. bsnl must improve the signal transmission levels as well as areas covered by its evdo signals. as of now, by just banking only on cable broadband and virtually ignoring the development of evdo customers, bsnl has already lost billions of rupees of revenue. bsnl should wakeup.

    Don’t hope unlimited from these people. These people can never give unlimited. For such a speed FUP should be atleast 50GB. Better to go for BSNL.

  • Fahad August 27, 2010 10:07 am

    But the problem with bsnl evdo is , it won’t get connectd in a single try as in photon +

  • Vijayan August 27, 2010 7:10 am

    I know Tata Photon Plus

  • Sam From Kashmir August 27, 2010 4:29 am

    sahi hai bai kashmir main b unlimited and the speed was so koooooool like weather…. 2 to 3mbps…

  • sachin August 26, 2010 11:33 pm

    bsnl GPRS and EVDO ARE THE BEST AND CHEAPEST . And when they say unlimited they MEAN unlimited.

    but for private companies unlimited means very very limited.

  • zareef August 26, 2010 11:26 pm

    and TATA dont have Proper EVDO Network u only get 153kbps in small cities

  • zareef August 26, 2010 11:24 pm

    BSNL EVDO & BSNL 3G thousand time better then this tata photon

  • Ramit August 26, 2010 8:55 pm

    @sai
    BSNL EVDO truely unlimited plan available @ Rs. 750 /month.

  • sai August 26, 2010 8:02 pm

    @Praveen

    But prices are high .

  • Praveen August 26, 2010 7:06 pm

    Better to go for BSNL EVDO where it is ‘truly unlimited’ :)

  • madhav August 26, 2010 4:15 pm

    Tata docomo offers gprs – 6GB download (average speed 200-250 kbps)for just rs.95, where as tata indicom evd0 – 5GB download for rs.950 (average speed 400-500 kbps), so its unfair and fraudulent of tata’s to charge 1000% more.

    accepted, the speed and value propotion is different for gprs and evdo, but even considering the same, evdo should be offered at rs.199 for 5-6GB download which is fair and honest pricing… considering the global cost of per GB of bandwidth is just 10 cents/GB or Rs.5/GB.

    hence tatas are no better than the chor reliance. they are just the same with different faces and perceptions. behind all of chem are chors and frauds… charging customers unethically high tariffs.

  • Prasanth Ramakrishnan August 26, 2010 3:29 pm

    yeah, after the kill of ” conditions apply ” by introducing ” simple ” plans by reliance.., now they have come up with FUP..!!! just another trick to keep moving ahead the sales..!
    what i dont understand in INDIA is that, even though there are many telecom operators, none of them is customer loyal.. every one trying to sell their product with keeping the promise they mean to..!
    when i was new to wireless internet, i was confused to take which one.., well tata photon, giving a good advertisement, i opted for it.. that was the day i realized, they market the product which is not as promised.!, the speed always keeps on fluctuating.. not to wonder if no one got 3.1 mbps atleast once, after they bought tata photon..!!
    business is getting mobile every day, it will kill the wired broadband in a matter of time… to take the era to mobile broadband..! if these operators trend to charge and cheat the customers like this before the implementation of 3G , one can imagine now how it will be after that..!
    when it comes to mobile broadband,You take up a connection because it has speed and it is reliable,but there isn’t any meaning in giving unlimited @ 156kbps..!! the gprs plans which comes at 99rs are far better than to spend 950rs for 5gb..!!

  • sachin August 26, 2010 2:32 pm

    ALMOST Rs.1000 for 5 GB that’s alot.!!!!!
    and discount is going towards discount onlny for 12 months and not for ever so its almost 1000 for 5 GB TOO EXPENSIVE.

  • BK August 26, 2010 2:03 pm

    the tata rep tried to trick me yesterday by saying 5 GB at 3.1 Mbps and after that unlimited at 2.7 to 2.8 Mbps….being a telecomtalk reader you dont easily fall for such business tactics….

  • BK August 26, 2010 2:01 pm

    How can you say …free usage of high speed Internet…when you’re paying 750? The word free usage has also been similarly abused like the word unlimited. eg… 2Gb free usage for Rs 48 etc…

  • Fahad August 26, 2010 1:29 pm

    Crap plans…
    Nothng special in these plans…

    Better to opt for 1 year subscription…

  • Mahmood Junaid August 26, 2010 1:21 pm

    even in america companies had started giving data with fair usage policy

  • Raghu August 26, 2010 1:16 pm

    everyone has started cheating customers by saying UNLIMITED AND AFTER THAT THEY WILL SAY FAIR USAGE Policy is applicable. this is new way of cheating the customers. better TRAI interfere on this and make it mandatory that if it is UNLIMITED it should be TRULY UNLIMITED :)

  • Rajat August 26, 2010 1:08 pm

    Agree with hardeep. Unlimited is the most miss guiding word today used by the telecom companies. Also the avg speed one gets from Photon plus is 153.6 kbps (1X). Reliance is better any day. I have used both…

  • hardeep August 26, 2010 12:52 pm

    UNLIMITED WITH FUP…..!!!!!!! SUDHAR JAO

  • Sougata Das August 26, 2010 12:41 pm

    Great news, now i am waiting for Reliance netconnect unlimited offer.

  • Ankur August 26, 2010 12:41 pm
