Tata Docomo increases 2G tariff in a bid to equalize the 2G and 3G tariffs

By December 26th, 2014 AT 1:12 PM

Tata Docomo which is often praised for offering the most affordable data packs in the country have silently hiked the 2G tariff in Punjab circle. The Rs.95 pack which had 600MB of 3G data now offers only 475MB. 1GB Data pack which was charged earlier at Rs.126 is now hiked to Rs.148. The Rs.56 recharge which used to give the users free data usage of 350MB now gives only 300MB of free usage.

This hike in the 2G prices seems to be an attempt by Tata Docomo to force users to switch to 3G. If we compare the price difference between 2G and 4G than it can be noticed that it is almost nil. 1GB 2G pack will cost Rs.148 and 1GB 3G pack will cost Rs.175.

Airtel has also reduced the validity of the 3G packs making it one of the costliest 3G services. The 3G speeds in India are suffering yet operators are hiking the tariffs and we feel that its high times operator start boosting the speeds and increase the FUP speeds. Here are some screens that depict the price hike in Punjab circle.
