Virgin Mobile GPRS Tariff Hiked, Now 1GB (Earlier 4GB) for Rs 96

In the line of recent tariff hike on GPRS packs, Tata Teleservices has revised Virgin Mobile (GSM)’s 2G data packs. Now GPRS packs from Virgin Mobile India are just similar to Tata Docomo’s GPRS packs.

In our comments section we have seen several comments that suggest to use Virgin Mobile (earlier offering 4GB for Rs 96) instead of Tata Docomo (now 1GB for Rs 95). I guess Tata Docomo guys have seen it (of course they read it – TT Impact: Tata Docomo Revised T&C on GPRS Packs) and revised GPRS packs from Virgin Mobile.

Check out revised GPRS packs from Virgin Mobile GSM:

Note that Tata Docomo charges 10p/10kB on post-bundled usage of these packs, while Virgin Mobile GSM charges 30p/50kB for the same.

    I was a BSNL GPRS user. Plans are good. But, Browsing is so complicated. After clicking links or buttons such as, it doesn’t get activated or sometimes it gets activated but, the browser doesn’t load to the activated section. At the same time, I can download files stable 32KBPS speed without slowing down. I was using 2GB plan, 2GB exceeds within 20-25 days, losing data unknowingly. Previous month, I have used 1.25GB of DOCOMO. But, I could used it for 26 days. Is there any solutions for above problems? I would like to back to BSNL.

      you can use opera mini for this purpose. i am using android phone and do my 99% browsing in opera mini next. it reduses data use nearly 85% and hence you can enjoy very much browsing. To know amount of data left you can check from ussd and also calculate by gprs data counter.

    From: Ambala, Haryana

    To shower love on their rivals or I should say their sister company Airtel, Idea has also capped speed to 80Kbps in all their unlimited 3G plans from 128Kbps before. 2G pack users also getting capped speed upto 80Kbps on 3G network and if they de-activate zero rental 3G, speed capping is 256Kbps on EDGE network which is unaffected. So 2G pack users better keep their 3G zero rental de-active.

    Docomo is going to lose half of its customers to bsnl n avoid

    if private company is not offering very good service then whats wrong in going for bsnl. its speed is lot better than docomo. bsnl offers more data than others. and if you are using bsnl our money is not going to be in one man’s pocket. its govt. and they will revert back to us with better services. i was always against bsnl but now i think its affordable.
    people complain about bsnl’s customer care, but yesterday i called them and argued more than 15 minutes. the representetive listened me and did what i wanted. so i recommend people once to try bsnl.

    I think TATA should sell Tat Tele to someone else interested in business.

      TTSL acts as it is a tiger, but it is actually a mere rat in telecom sector. It is not even in top three spots in any circle, yet trying to act smart like biggies.

    Tata Docomo becomes bullshit now. Everybody knows their connection gets automatically disconnects every after 30 minute. This policy is now well known to them and the GPRS help desk start telling customers either to bear with it or do port to another network.

    Ambala, Haryana: Yups, they’ve updated all circle pages except for Haryana where its still the same and Himachal Pradesh which is showing no plans at all. The plans are similar in all circles. So now Tata and the MVNO Virgin has GPRS plans on Pan-India basis. No circle specific plans like before which were categorized as reginal packs. :) Hoping for same on T24 website which is currently showing 6GB in 96.
