Can i know there is any good idea to reduce the roaming charges or there will be a good offer to know that bsnl network is very good in roaming. Can i change the network in AP from Vodafone to Bsnl ? or should i change in the delhi it self from Vodafone to Bsnl ?

  • Ramnik Mongia July 6, 2011 4:19 pm

    Vodafone should reduce roaming charges flat to max 30paisa per min or 1/2 paisa per min.
    BEST FOR ROAMING IS TATA CDMA. Only prob with TATA is that u don’t get choice of hand sets . If companies start making good handsets people will shift to TATA. I have tow connections . One is TATA & other is VDAFONE.

    Best way to capture the max share in the market is REDUCE ROAMING CHARGES .

    Please advise how can I save the roaming charges.

    Consult friends and colleagues and take note of their practical experience. In my view, if your stationed permanently (or maximum use)beyond the Mumbai’s limit, better go for bsnl.

    BSNL is right choice if you are from Vasai but new connection should be taken.. and also port your existing Mumbai Vodafone number to other operators like Airtel, Aircel,Uninor, Tata Docomo , Reliance to avoid roaming in Vasai (i.e in Rest of Maharashtra circle)

    This plan is rubbish at least for Kolkata circle users. STD still cost @Rs1.5 per minute. But BSNL is all flat just 0.49 paise per minute. SO THE RATE WHAT BSNL HAS BEEN DECLARED WILL CREATE WAR AMONGST THE TELCOS. ALL COMPANIES MUST HAVE TO WILLINGLY FORCEFULLY REDUCE THEIR RATES WITHIN FEW MONTHS.

    Saikat C :@Dipankar If people are so disgruntled with Airtel, why they are still No.1 ? Any guess ?

    Because is the best operator in the country…and it will remain number 1..not because it has the best brand, not because it has the best service, not because its the most innovative….but simply because it has a long term strategy for rural india…
    Airtel has already leveraged the urban market for the last 10 year..and now when these idiots are fighting over a market that >80% penetrated…airtel is strategically shifting focus into the rural areas…it has tieups with farmers, IFFCO society and a clear strategy to usher in the next telecom growth..

    people in this forum may think that airtel sucks becuse is charges 5-10p more…but the fact is unlike others airtel is the only one who is a long term reliable and genuine playr in the market

    Others are just bloody brokers who are trying to woo customers by giving them cheaper options….MNP will come and people will switch..but then they will realize what Airtel truely stands for and what reliance/aircel/docomo/mts/unitech etc stand for

    if they started with GSM service like now from begining all over India then Airtel was no where in market
    so u can say Airtel is pretty lucky

    You are quite right and pretty close !
    In GSM technology, tell me 3 names who are worth the salt. Airt…, voda.. then ?
    Even six months back we did not have a 3rd real good operator in GSM on National level in terms of QoS and cust. service & grievance redressal.
    The rules of the game is changing. If docomo and RCL sets up a real good network (RCL already pretty close to it ), then we are going to have a whale of a time !!

    yes sure.
    but the telecom industries were hust minting so much of money out of sms which actually costs them less than 1 paisa.
    but since one industry has reduced the rates in the market, the other industries follow too.
    it is a general trend seen in a market and soon there is so much of price war going on right now i believe to maintain the competition and hierarchy the industries would certainly reduce the rates.
    call rates are to be believed to go below 30paisa/minute or its per second version.
    this revolution would be started by 2010 Feb or March.
    Till then we would have to be settled at a price of like 60p,30p per minute.
    and i dont think sms would go cheaoper than 1 paisa.

  • mukul December 2, 2009 2:29 pm

    nahi dada…i will be really suprised if any new operator would ever enter Indian cellular telecom market again !!! you will see in the year 2010 that next year there will be 12-13 operators and inadequate food for them, so they will fight like made and in the year 2011 some will be dead or on the way out. so after 3 years, there will be maximum 5 to 6 operators left. they would have lost so much of profi opportunity by that time that they will form a cartel and ensure that prices wont drop any further. i dont think prices will fall any further after year 2010.

    mukul :

    Saurabh :Vodafone, Airtel and Idea are assh0les.They won’t reduce the rates as low as Reliance and Tata Docomo.The rates would be low but they would surely more than reliance and tata.Sms rates haven’t gone down since a week after Reliance introduced 1 paisa schemes.The only problem with Reliance GSM is its network.Apart from network Reliance truly rocks.On the other hand Vodafone and Idea have superb network in Maharashtra.But Airtel seems to be a bigger asshole than vodafone and idea because it does not has good network and still it charges more.So go for Reliance.On the other hand 5 more new companies are launching their services like Onida, Aircel etc.So we would certainly see a drop in call rates and sms as we’ve already experienced it through Reliance.

    if a mobile operator does not have good network to offer, what is the point ? if telenor today prints a brochure with rates of 25 p per minute for std and local, what is the value it will have ???? nothing. you are banking on these new guys…they will offer low price BECAUSE they do not have network. take my word, see this same docomo and reliance gsm after 3 years. they will raise the price once their network is properly in place. saste mein to kachra hi milega. achhi chee hamesha thodi mahangi hogi… can you give me any other example of an established industry where the best quality product is available at the lowest price ???

    there is MNP , so after 3 years again changed to some cheap operators

    thats why i dumped airtel and taken vodafone postpaid connection
    i have to travel extensively all over india and in some circles like kerala,haryana,UP(w),Gujrat Airtel network is not good in some places and i cant log on to other network like idea,aircel,reliance,vodafone
    now with vodafone in roaming i can select any network including airtel

    Saurabh :Vodafone, Airtel and Idea are assh0les.They won’t reduce the rates as low as Reliance and Tata Docomo.The rates would be low but they would surely more than reliance and tata.Sms rates haven’t gone down since a week after Reliance introduced 1 paisa schemes.The only problem with Reliance GSM is its network.Apart from network Reliance truly rocks.On the other hand Vodafone and Idea have superb network in Maharashtra.But Airtel seems to be a bigger asshole than vodafone and idea because it does not has good network and still it charges more.So go for Reliance.On the other hand 5 more new companies are launching their services like Onida, Aircel etc.So we would certainly see a drop in call rates and sms as we’ve already experienced it through Reliance.

    if a mobile operator does not have good network to offer, what is the point ? if telenor today prints a brochure with rates of 25 p per minute for std and local, what is the value it will have ???? nothing. you are banking on these new guys…they will offer low price BECAUSE they do not have network. take my word, see this same docomo and reliance gsm after 3 years. they will raise the price once their network is properly in place. saste mein to kachra hi milega. achhi chee hamesha thodi mahangi hogi… can you give me any other example of an established industry where the best quality product is available at the lowest price ???

    @Fahad
    Sunil Mittal once says By 2011 airtel will be the biggest and trusted brand in India
    now it seems by 2011 Airtel will be out of telecom market in India

  • Fahad December 2, 2009 12:00 pm

  • kaushik December 2, 2009 11:54 am

    Vodafone in bihar local & std 40 paise
    cheap than reliance

  • kaushik December 2, 2009 11:47 am

    Airtel thinks they are the BAAP of telecom in INDIA,thats why they wont roam with other network.
    In case if in roaming there is no airtel network but vodafone,idea etc are available still u cant logon to their network
    On the other hand vodafone,idea still depends on other network as well as own network on roaming

  • Saurabh December 2, 2009 11:17 am

    Quite disappointing !

  • Ram December 2, 2009 9:18 am

    I think, this plane is not suitable one for all. In privies days incoming call charge is 1Rs/min, now it will become 0.9Rs/ min. So there is no loss for the company.Only deference is 10p.

    When compare to all other network, Reliance is best. The Reliance is offering 1p/s (60p/Sec) in home network and roaming also. Same like Reliance offering 1p/SMS in home Local/ National/ roaming (recharge with 11rs) and full talk time (recharge above 75rs). When compare to all other network, reliance is best. Once number priority option comes, most of the people will shift to other networks.

    One small request to reliance is “have to improve the Coverage” otherwise reliance is best network (at present- all the aspects like cost wise, connectivity, free colour tune, no extra taxes……..)

  • Vineet December 2, 2009 8:56 am

    At this moment reliance all plans (local,std,sms and roaming) are best.

  • avtarkaint December 2, 2009 8:55 am

    this time reliance is best

  • Tej December 2, 2009 5:40 am

    It means vodafone not reduced roaming charges on other network

  • Rohit December 2, 2009 2:20 am

    Poor Business in India.
    We Indian Like and Live with Cheap and Best and i am Switching to Reliance in a day or 2 from Vodafone.

    No Wonder “Videshi Mobile Company” are kicked like Simon was.

  • Sahil December 2, 2009 12:20 am

    GUYS …any idea when reliance will alunch in goa circle..m badly waiting for it.

  • Sahil December 2, 2009 12:17 am

    this info is wrng…thr RV is of 74rs ..check the website guys…

  • Rohan December 1, 2009 11:46 pm

    Lets kick vodafone doggie outta indian market firangee

  • Sahil December 1, 2009 11:24 pm

    this is unfair as the customers might have already migrated to the per second billing plan will have to again pay the charges for this plan. By launching more attractive schemes everyday, all companies are playing a cheap and dirty game

  • Lucifer@Indian Freebies December 1, 2009 11:05 pm

    Finally vodafone came with some offer but still reliance is far better with its plan :)

  • Fahad December 1, 2009 10:38 pm

    Definetly thr r 2 plans one per sec and 2nd per min

  • Vinayak Pai December 1, 2009 10:36 pm

    @Ashish
    exactly. Is it a printing mistake or is there any per minute option as well?

  • Fahad December 1, 2009 10:32 pm

  • rajiev December 1, 2009 10:24 pm

    i m delhi idea postapaid user and i m waitin for mnp. i will surely go for reliance.

  • kaushik December 1, 2009 10:18 pm

    sumanth :

    naveen :hahahahaha, ask the DoG of vodafone to catch up with Reliance or it will miss the bus, AIRTEL and VODAFONE CUSTOMERS GET READY,,, U ARE GOING TO GET BUSTED ONCE NUMBER PORTABILITY COMESSSSSSSSSS INN. DO SU SU in ur pants, JAIIIIIIIIIIIIII HOOOOOOOOOOO RELIANCE

    mnp is going to be delayed by these b%%^$%^. so lets not rejoice yet.
    http://www.business-standard.com/india/news/mnp-likely-to-be-delayed/377922/

    even delaying of MNP cant save Airtel or Vodafone or BSNL or IDEA from reliance/tata.
    Airtel for last 6 months is going either 2nd or 3rd in overall customer addition
    these addition of docomo is not only due to offers but also network coverage
    wait for 6 months dococmo will be one of finest networks of India alongwith RGSM

    ved bias :
    I think this plan will wrk only for prepaid customers…… and wat abt the postpaid customers……

    According to Vodafone, its Post paid users are VERY VERY VERY RICH and they do not worry about burning a hole in their pocket… But in real, they are poor (not financially) fellows waiting for MNP..

  • Prasath J December 1, 2009 9:56 pm

    They took this much time, to get a new name for the tariff only…!!! :D :D :D … Vodafone ticket… If they didn’t launch this people will buy ticke for them to fly back to UK… ;-)

    Roam @ 70p/min is better than Airtel, but as usual much much COSTLIER than Reliance and Docomo.. Then what about POSTPAID users???? Most people who roam regularly are POSTPAID users only… VODAFONE once again proved that its POST PAID CUSTOMERS are :D :D :D :D :D :D :D ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) … You all know what I meant, right….

    So only BSNL is left out to reduce the roaming rates… And I am sure, Idea will follow and even Aircel also possible…

  • kaushik December 1, 2009 9:53 pm

    Plan enrolment fee is different for different circles
    they should charge an unique price for all circles like reliance or docomo

  • ved bias December 1, 2009 9:52 pm

    I think this plan will wrk only for prepaid customers…… and wat abt the postpaid customers……

  • Ashish December 1, 2009 9:42 pm

    Please get your mathematics right 1.5p per sec makes 90p per min

  • MANDEEP December 1, 2009 9:19 pm

    this is the unfinished and poor copy of reliance or tata docomo because these companies are giving calls at 1p /sec to all network while roaming but better and cheper than airtel.

  • Denny December 1, 2009 9:09 pm

    I don know how many enrolment fee we need to pay for this fellows. I hope once MNP comes they need to go back to UK.

    So none of the operators are ready to reduce their sms rates apart from Reliance.

    Waiting for MNP !!!!!!!!!!

  • Fahad December 1, 2009 9:00 pm

    Betr than airtel……

  • Fahad December 1, 2009 8:59 pm

    Wow the plan is mindblowng for a vodafne custmr …bt wat abt f**king sms charges wen wl u reduce that…plan z awsum bt sms chargs r faltu…
