Uninor Unleashes GPRS Tariff War

Uninor Unleashes Gprs Tariff WarIndia’s mobile market, over crowded by around 17 mobile operators shows intense competition – which helps to drop down call rate as low as half a paisa per second and SMS over India costs merely 1paisa! But it is sad data tariff or Internet on mobile Phones is not that cheap.

GPRS/EDGE speed is often too slow to surf Internet unlimited Low Cost GPRS/Mobile Internet is offered by a few operators in 2G segments, incidentally BSNL and MTNL the Govt owned operators offering some attractive limited plans and Unlimited Faster Data Connectivity on 3G network at Rs 2500, well that is out of reach of most people, still you can expect it to be cheap in future.

Interestingly CDMA operators has not entered Internet-on-the-go in that exclusively way, though they are in Data card business with 3.1 Mbps EVDO technology. Tata Indicom recently rolled out Photon+ on mobile, though tariff will keep most users at a bay with a few handset supported! MTS has not entered Internet on the go services (on Mobile Phones) till.

Aircel is pioneer in cutting down GPRS price, offering unlimited net-on-mobile or on PC at just Rs 98 for a period of 30 days. Aircel even has a trial pack of Rs 14 offering unlimited Internet for 3 days. Aircel GPRS speed is not bad, but differs circle to circle, zone to zone and time to time, peak hours offers slower speed and this is applicable to all operators. MTNL has same GPRS tariff like Aircel on 2G network.

Airtel brought GPRS tariff cut down to compete Tata Docomo’s offers, now offering internet on phone/PC 2GB for Rs 98 for 30 days. Tata Docomo is also offering GPRS services, offering 200MB free usage in day and 4GB at night at Rs 95 for 30 days. For high end users Tata Docomo is not a good option. Reliance GPRS is also costly. BSNL has different packs for different needs in different circles; See here. (Check Tata Docomo vs BSNL GPRS – exclusive comparison.) Vodafone has one of the few operators who did not hear to market needs. Recently in Kolkata circle, Vodafone launches unlimited GPRS at an affordable Rs 251 for 30 days. Idea fails to create hype in GPRS market, offering some crappy pack in some circles, basic browsing comes at a 2paisa/KB compared to others’ 1p/KB or 10p/KB! STel has to roll out GPRS.

Now enter Uninor! Though Uninor’s voice tariff failed to attract Indian people, this time Uninor (and Telenor too) understands the value-for-money sentiment of Indians and stirs the market with its GPRS packs. Uninor is offering 3GB internet at Rs 90 for 30 days with free browsing on Facebook, Orkut and Twitter. It’s a damn good deal! Uninor with free browsing on Facebook and Twitter outnumbers Tata Docomo (don’t count Buddynet with daily rental Re1)! As Uninor’s network is less congested, speed is expected to be good enough.

Have a look to compare GPRS(2G) Packs:

Unlimited pack Other pack (taken maximum free usage) Post free usage charge
Aircel Rs 98, 30 days Rs 14,3 days N/A N/A
MTNL(2G) Rs 98, 30 days Rs 14, 3 days N/A N/A
Airtel N/A Rs 98, 2GB,30 daysRs 23, 200MB,3 days 30p/50KB
BSNL(2G) Rs 274, 30 days Rs.219 ,1 GB (day)- 4 GB (night), 30 days 1p/10KB
Tata Docomo N/A Rs 95, 200MB (day)- 4 GB (night), 30 days 50p/MB
Uninor N/A Rs90, 3GB,30 daysRs9, 60MB,3 days 10p/10KB

*Free browsing on facebook, Orkut & twitter

Verdict: As faster 3G Data Tariff at present is quite high, 2G will remain mainstream for next 2 years, if there is no major breakthrough in 3G data tariff. Uninor, which did not take part in 3G auction, will continue to offer more on 2G, GPRS and EDGE. Bet on Uninor!

  • Sanjib November 26, 2011 9:37 am

    thanx for Bsnl,here download speed 150-250 kb/sec…I use 98 rs for 2gb for 30days..nice speed……..

  • Dolly Sharma October 21, 2011 1:04 am

    Hi frnds.. I want to use Unlimited packs for orissa circle,, is there any network which provide unlimited plans for orissa ( jashipur) in prepaid..
    kindly suggest !!

  • coolboy October 15, 2011 9:17 pm

    uninor and reliance really rockks. they offer upto 30 kbps speed.

  • antony October 4, 2011 8:37 pm

    The only reason i still have my BSNL landline is because of broadband internet, which now costs Rs.750 per month unlimited usage and with tax comes to around Rs.850 per month. Speed is 512 kpbs. If tata photon or DoCoMo and anybody can match this tariff and unlimited plan, i will disconnect BSNL due to their pathetic service.

  • Bromaster September 17, 2011 1:42 pm

    Sunny bro this happens on almost all networks as I have seen.
    Tata Docomo,Aircel and even Idea do it that after you use 50% or more of ur data limit they decrease the speed to ultra low amounts.

  • Sunny July 7, 2011 5:12 pm

    uninor optimize speed after 2 Gb usage on recharge of 6 Gb gprs pack of Rs 90. My speed optimized to 4 KB/s from 20 Kb/s when I use 2 Gb data from My 6 Gb data recharge. This Speed optimized to my brother also and we are from two other circle. There customer care not accept it, but it happens…

  • Amit.g November 3, 2010 1:12 pm

    @Pratap Madgulkar
    Yup bcos nokia x6 has got EDGE CLASS 32 so it offers good speeds

  • Pratap Madgulkar November 3, 2010 1:01 pm

    hi people ,

    I have taken new nokia x6 , and i am using reliance GPRS with it .

    very good speed for web surfing at minimum rates .

    it offers Rs99 / month [2.5GB DD]

    I was having another phone of nokia 6500Slide which was not giving so much of speed.

    speed depends on area – time – phone

    on phone and on laptop speed it very good .

  • dablu October 28, 2010 4:20 pm

    Praveen r u joking???? Aircel speed of 34 kbps….. Aircel sucks…. if any 1 wants speed take uninor….

  • Jitendra September 29, 2010 12:24 pm

    Dear reader,

    After I faced problem with Uninor GPRS connection and it’s speed (which I till date not resolved). Now an unique problem i’m facing with same card my talk time balance is getting reduced automatically. While activating my new account with Uninor I have recharged this account with RS 50/- and without using this card for making any call my balance gets reduced day by day, it was reduce to RS 45 then to RS 25 and finally to RS 15. When I realized this problem I have call customer care and they were not able to track or resolved my problem, so I thought of visiting same Uninor store from where I had bought this card, but it was not helpful it just waste of time. They had check with my account and were not able to resolve the problem. They give me assurance by saying we have raised your complaint to concern department and it will be solved within 72 hours. I was very happy to hard that but now it is the fourth day after I had logged my complaint but still my balance it not reverse or nor any call I have received.

    And finally I have reached to a decision to close down this account. I’m sure if the service will stay similar for more one month or two they will soon have to shut down them-self or will have to sell it to some better telecom company.

    I’m sure I’m not unique case there might be many more like me….. frustrating with Uninor services.

    Jitendra :
    Hello Friends, I would like to share my bad experience about Uninor. I guess this is the pathetic service i have ever received. on this sunday I had bought new connection, my only purpose to take this connection was to use internet on my phone as I do have a multi Sim phone and I’m already having Vodafone as my master Sim card. but since Sunday I have not get uninterrupted service. I have done top up of rupees 50 and my balance is getting cut off without I using this phone for any call. I have taken Rs. 90 pack for 3 gb for a one month validity. but most of the time it is not get connected or speed so slow that even if you browser continuous for a month due to speed you will not even reach to 500 mb in total.
    And the bad part is that even if you called any time to their Help desk you will get the answer that “Sir system is down for last one hour or can you please call us back in hour and so… so that we can answer or resolve your problem. but even before you get your query answer they will say….Sir is there anything else I can help you?….”
    So friends I don’t want you to go through the same…… better go for something else or ready face more worst experience than this.
    I have not written the complete incidence as it will be time consuming for you and for me to.
    But i will suggest learn from my experience and take the correct decision.
    Thanks for taking your time out to read this, it will definitely save your future headaches.

    yeah bad service i ever seen very slow speed i was not succeeded to open any site even in one hour
    Only Error “Gateway failed” shown in pc

    the impotent vodafone is no where in the scene of gprs for prepaid users. it does not have the capability to perform/provide gprs and satisfy its customers. it is bothered and interested only in milking postpaid users and cares a damn for its prepaid user. f@#$@ vodafone. only when mnp comes we can get rid of this acute pain called vodafone.

  • zareef April 25, 2010 12:33 pm

    in my place till know No change in speed…

  • Rohan April 25, 2010 11:38 am

    Unlimited plans are always slow. Best GPRS speed is of Docomo and Bsnl. As Bsnl have 8 to 10 settings it is faster than the rest. If u get slow data transfer move on to next settings. I get 40kb/sec of dwnld speed & sometimes 20kb/sec always.

  • rajiev April 25, 2010 8:33 am

    all network speed r same , depend on their time or how far is ur tower

  • Mazhar April 25, 2010 7:36 am

    Hi Uninor gprs speed is very slow compare Vodafone gprs. vodafone gprs speed is better than Uninor.

  • S M Ashiq April 24, 2010 6:47 pm

    Wrong information about Reliance GSM

    Reliance is providing 2 unlimited Gprs pack

    Rs.26 – 3day unlimited usage
    Rs.107 – 14day unlimited usage.

    for one month it will only 214, less than BSNL unlimited per month.

  • Prasath J April 24, 2010 6:30 pm

    Any data mole$ting charges apply in Uninor’s GPRS plans??? :D :D

  • vinay April 24, 2010 6:12 pm

    additional mb rates. uninor 10 rs/mb n airtel 6 rs/mb against mtnl rate of 1 re/mb?? too costly !!!

  • Max April 24, 2010 6:03 pm

    @MaNoJ
    Manoj at present Docomo is giving best speed compared to all but its tariff is not friendly one 200mb(day) & 4GB (nite). Next to docomo is aircel but its speed is not stable & will annoy u very much

  • Max April 24, 2010 5:56 pm

    EDGE speed is completely dependent on network congestion. in metros u ll get slow speed where as in class B towns speed will be good.
    Though aircel has cheapest GPRS/EDGE tariff it provides slow speed & it fluctuates all t time.Airtel i guess completely engaged in voice services rather than data services tat’s y still tey have GPRS enabled towers in some places. Uninor is the hope for many ppl but should see whether they will give consistent speed or even they will follow aircel. Also speed depends on the device which we use, class 12 EDGE provides less speed than class 32. At present im getting upto 300kbps in Aircel with my new E1550 modem & hope tat speed will remain consistent. i used to get avg speed of 215kbps in EG162G modem.

  • Ganesh Srinivasan April 24, 2010 5:45 pm

    @velu
    I agree with you from technical view point, but x and y speeds I mentioned earlier are from marketing point of view

  • mahesh April 24, 2010 5:25 pm

    Reliance netconnect speed is very good. It is bit costly. Three days unlimited costs 26 rupees and 14 days unlimited costs more than hundred. But the average speed is around 216kbps in my area.

  • Abhijit April 24, 2010 5:21 pm

    Bsnl is best in terms of coverage, speed, roaming but here in Maharashtra Bsnl does not offer any Gprs plans for prepaid users it has just 5ps/10kb default plan so not a good plan.. Aircel has unlimited plan but speed is to pathetic so no use at all.. Idea has faster speed but very costly rs.25 daily with unlimited 1 day usage so no use of this at all.. Vodafone has rs.95 for 2 GB for 30 days but no socket connection available so very faltu operator and should send them to UK back.. so airtel & Docomo are best here in Maharashtra..
    As uninor is launching soon in Maharashtra so Docomo here has just launched FATTE BOL offer in which 1GB free gprs for every month for whole one year and also TATA 2 TATA free 277mins which include(Indicom, Docomo, Virgin GSM CDMA)that too every month for whole one year in just rs.94. so no competition to this offer by any operator until yet in Maharshtra including Mumbai cirlce from TATA DOCOMO….

  • velu April 24, 2010 4:32 pm

    @Ganesh Srinivasan
    Ganesh it will not applicaple for wireless for reduced bandwidth reduced rate. because the same amount of spectrum will be used for the connection.

  • Ganesh Srinivasan April 24, 2010 4:03 pm

    Every operator is bad in speed in Bangalore. Also I find speeds are better with Prepaid than with Postpaid connections [I have tried many operators, same story]. Overall Airtel,BSNL and Docomo are good for data speeds with Airtel and BSNL good in coverage / roaming. I am betting big on these three for Apple iPad when it launches in India

  • Rahul (Tech India) April 24, 2010 3:31 pm

    MaNoJ :
    Which operator is providing better speed??

    BSNL,Airtel (except Karnataka),Vodafone and MTNL are good in speed.Tata Docomo is also good but the coverage and network specially indoor area as well as roaming is very poor so docomo is not best option. There is no tariff war by Uninor, because still its default gprs data tariff is 10 time higher from BSNL/MTNL and also from Reliance too

  • MaNoJ April 24, 2010 3:22 pm

    Which operator is providing better speed??

  • dev April 24, 2010 3:15 pm

    I am just waiting for MNP, first thing i will do, ill convert my 5yrs old VF number to aircel.
    for lowcost calling 1p/2sec local & GPRS Rs.98 for 30 days unlimited.

  • Keshav April 24, 2010 3:13 pm

    BSNL mere liye bhi best hai. In 3G, first pay as you use. Charge is 1p/10kb or less. But for me approximate charge is 16p/mb with 10kb pulse rate. A lot of time I find cricket scores, news etc with last call charge 0.00 INR. It also works on 2G network & in roaming (Mumbai & Delhi also) with same rate. When I surf with this on computer, average cost is 3-6 rupees per hour. Speed is too good. For 2G, BSNL is expanding it’s EDGE coverage over current GPRS. So BSNL is the best.

  • vineet1806 April 24, 2010 2:23 pm

    Vodafone bihar gives unlimitd gprs@98 for 30days.

  • Rajat April 24, 2010 2:04 pm

    Bsnl ie best hai mere liye bcoz no charge for unlimited 3g means browsing and downloading is free but it’s only for me.

  • Ganesh Srinivasan April 24, 2010 1:59 pm

    Wait for 3G to get launched and within few months from then, mostly by end of 2010, 3G unlimited rates will settle down at Rs 500 a month. Like the shakeout in voice call rates, the shakeout in GPRS rates are bound to happen. You would have plans like up to X GB at X mbps and beyond that unlimited at Y kbps speed.

  • San April 24, 2010 1:56 pm

    Gr8 peice of work RDB.. yaar it helped me lot!! Thanks man.

  • rajiev April 24, 2010 1:46 pm

    idea bakwas,nice is bsnl. but what about delhi circle there is no bsnl.is it works on roaming

  • dev April 24, 2010 1:44 pm

    There is one major drowback with Unior GPRS ,its dont have all in coverage,so while in roaming,where Uninor dont have its own network using GPRS through supporting operator network will nt b possible/or its cargeable 10p/10kb.

    airtel & aircel gprs is a good option compaired to other.

  • Nikhil kHURANA April 24, 2010 1:43 pm

    MTNL delhi has still not the plan ….it is for mumbai MTNL…….delhi subscribers r still waiting for unlimited plans…..when will MTNL delhi launch….

  • raj April 24, 2010 1:38 pm

    Really Fantastic Image for comparison of GPRS tariff.,Good work Mr.Rudradeep Biswas..
    I’m using GPRS services of last two Idiots (Vodafone & Reliance)., They eat people’s money in de name of GPRS.

  • Vignesh April 24, 2010 1:35 pm

    There is no use keeping Data caps when the GPRS / EDGE speeds are pathetic to say the least …at the most they r useful in browsing WAP based sites on mobile phones

  • Adi April 24, 2010 1:18 pm

    This really isn’t a war when considering what Aircel/MTNL is offering. They need to move to unlimited bucket plans and drop data caps.

  • mohan April 24, 2010 1:13 pm

    NICE PLANS I USE AIRCEL IT IS GOOD COMPARED TO OTHER OPERATORS
