Reliance Communication Brings Mumbai, Pune & Hyderabad under Pro 3 Network

Reliance Communications has silently expanded their CDMA Rev B phase II services, Pro 3 to three new metros – Mumbai, Pune & Hyderabad. Initially the service was limited to Bangalore & Chennai.

Unlike MTS (Ultra offers up to 9.8Mbps) & Tata Docomo (Photon Max offers upto 6.2Mbps), Reliance Pro 3 is using 3 carriers to boost the downlink upto 14.7 Mbps.


Rcom was the pioneer of CDMA technology in India, they launched Rev A based Netconnect+ – first 3rd generation mobile broadband in India. However that was during Mukesh Ambani’s leadership. Later Ambani brothers split & broke up the Reliance empire. Younger brother Anil took the charge of Rcom.

Rcom entered into GSM segment in 2006-2007 and following that their CDMA business was heavily compromised. It’s good to see that Rcom is pushing data over CDMA platform too.

Details of Reliance Pro 3 including postpaid plans (no prepaid till now), device details can be seen in our previous post.

Benefits for EVDO Rev. B Users:

> High Data Rates – Downlink speed up to 14.7Mbps and Upload speed upto 5.4Mbps
> Very Low Average Latency – Increases connectivity between browser and web page server
> Data Traffic Regulation – Base Station Towers can handle more users along with exciting REV. A in particular Cell
> Advanced QoS – More packets can be transferred with in particular limit resulting increasing download speed by 2x

Many users complained about poor speed on Pro 3. We like to see our readers who experienced Pro 3 sharing their experience with us.

I brought Reliance CDMA Pro3 from Pune to Patna and I am getting only 30kbps/sec speed at Patna. Can anyone suggest whether Patna has got EVDO or Rev A network coverage or not?

I subscribed to Reliance Pro 3 for the plan Rs.999 (40 GB). But the main problem in Pune is that Rev 2 coverage is not yet available in most of the areas. So, it works on Rev 1 just like normal NetConnect+ dongle.
Reliance should focus on increasing the Rev 2 coverage in Pune. Otherwise it will be cheating the customers. The speed we get is 1 Mbps (~100-120 KBps actual download).

I agree with Praveen. I am from Bangalore and I have not seen the speed going above 1.5 Mbps when I tried to download.
