TATA INDICOM EXTENDS DATA ROAMING TO 160 COUNTRIES & 400 AIRPORTS

By July 16th, 2009 AT 3:48 PM

Tata Teleservices Limited, India’s fastest growing pan India telecom service provider, today announced the launch of Global Data Roaming in association with Tata Communications. Tata Communications has extended its global data roaming services to mobile customers through Cyberpass. Customers can now avail data roaming connectivity with a single login internet access across 160 countries on Tata Indicom.

A first of its kind, the data roaming service will be available to all Tata Indicom post-paid customers  – whether they use a mobile, ‘Walky’ or data card. Whats more when they travel, they have a choice of accessing the Internet via dial-up, broadband or Wi-Fi zones across the world. The service would be available with a single login and password enabled by Cyberpass. Globetrotters can now stay on top of their mails, send large files and browse the internet with a simplified billing structure that allows cost certainty when they roam abroad.

Highlights of the Data Roaming service include:

  • International access in over 160 countries and over 400 airports
  • One single login/password
  • Open to all postpaid users
  • Access data across the world but pay in Rupees

“This is a pioneering service introduced by Tata Indicom, another amongst the host of “firsts” offered to the customers. It brings together not only the comfort of a hassle–free and secure billing process, but also the calculations of the bill being in Indian Rupees in spite of international roaming. It further reduces the limitations of availing Tata Indicom services to enhance customer experience,” said Mr. Pradeep Dwivedi, Senior Vice President-Marketing, Tata Teleservices Limited.

“We are delighted to partner with Tata Communications for extending its global data roaming services through CyberPass that allows a host of services like internet access, content access, net telephony, e-mail, etc. through one power packed account !”, he added.

HOW IT WORKS : This Global Data Roaming Service can be activated through a simple registration process at Tata Indicom and “Cyberpass” websites. Once registered, the user can download the dialer from the Tata Indicom website for a hassle-free log-in across the globe. While on roaming at an overseas Wi-Fi zone, a customer can login through the dialer after selecting the appropriate service provider from the dropdown list, and start enjoying the extensive coverage provided by Tata Indicom. Users will also be able to view their Global Roaming Usage by going in to the “My Usage” sub section in the “Cyberpass” website.
