Two days back Tata Docomo revealed its 3G tariffs , now Tata Docomo launched Tata Docomo 3G Mobile Broadband devices. The prices of the HSDPA device and Data cards looks reasonable, especially the HSPA+ USB Modem has 21.6 Mbps maximum speed and costs Rs 3500.When you compare this with current mobile broadband devices in the market, for instance Airtel 3.6 mbps modem costs Rs 3800. So I think the prices are reasonable, if you wish to get high-speed devices.
I waited for 3G, but two months back when I moved to Bengaluru for my training I was forced to buy MTS MBLAZE mobile broand device for RS 3000, which promised 3.1 Mbps speed. But frankly the maximum speed I got in good netwok condition was 650 to 740 kbps. So I think its time move on for 3G devices, but currently the only option is Tata DOCOMO 3G devices.
