TATA DOCOMO Launch Unlimited GPRS service for Prepaid Users

Last month we have published about newly launched TATA DOCOMO GSM service. That time the main concern about value added services. I think GPRS or mobile internet was one of them. At the time of launch they have given an option for GPRS but that plan was on "per KB basis" which was little costly, if you are a frequent user of internet on mobile. Now because of competitive market in INDIA, TATA DOCOMO has taken one step further with "Unlimited GPRS Plan" at very cheap rates.

While other premium operators like Airtel, IDEA provide unlimited internet with minimum rent of 15 Rs a day, TATA DOCOMO is giving Unlimited GPRS pack in just Rs95/month. Well its cheaper than Aircell Pocket internet which costs Rs98/month.

Packs available with TATA DOCOMO

* Rs.15 GPRS Pack:
This is a pre paid recharge pack of Rs.15, allowing you unlimited internet access for next 3 days. Just select DOCOMO internet APN on your GPRS handset.

* Rs.95 GPRS Pack:
This is a pre paid pack of Rs.95 allowing unlimited internet access for up-to 30 days. Just select DOCOMO internet APN on your GPRS handset.

To activate any of the packs mentioned above, just visit nearest retail shop and purchase recharge voucher.


Just SMS internet to 52270 and save the settings as default on your mobile.
Or configure as follows

Connection Name : TataDocomoInternet
Data Bearer : GPRS
Username : blank
Password : blank
Homepage : blank
Connection Security : Off
Session Mode : Permanent
No proxy required

"blank" means you need to leave it as it is.

Well TATA DOCOMO GPRS works pretty fine on mobile because of EDGE network. We were able to get a speed of 60 Kbps ( i.e. kilo bits per second). But this depends on network condition. Now we have to wait for 3G services from private operators, which may get launched next year. Because of competitive market in INDIA, I think INDIA will host cheapest 3G services in World.

  1. I got my 30 day GPRS activated for DOCOMO for just Rs.48/-. I have tried it at couple of places in Bangalore and the service is extremely lousy. To add to my misery, I tried to reach the call center and the lady tells that all the agents are busy on calls hence drop in an email. When I mailed them as per IVR request, I got a quick canned message requesting me to reply back with my location and phone number, which I did. However, the canned message keeps repeating every time I drop them an email. Not worth it.... Uninor is much better serice compared to DOCOMO.
