Reliance and Tata Indicom have now come out with USB
modems that provide
broadband speeds theoretically upto 3.1 Mbps in major cities with
National low speed roaming in other areas. A client of mine told me that
his friend uses a Reliance one and clocked upto 1.5 Mbps on it.
Do you have links to these plans? Thanks in advance.
I am thinking of subscribing to one of these plans:
The reliance guy had called up and asked if I would like to see a demo
before purchase. I was surprized to hear such words from a Reliance customer
care. The last time I had a reliance connection was 4 years back and their
customer care was pathetic that time.
So I have this Tata Indicom Data card since 2006. Works great. Have
used it at various places - from dusty Panvel to streets of Delhi to
lanes of Kharagpur to beautiful campus of NIT Durgapur/Calicut. That
is the end of happy story.
I called up the Tata Indicom to enquire if there a upgrade path for
old users/customers to somehow move to these super fast new USB
devices and plans also known as "Photon". They said nopes, the only
way is to chuck the old one ( no refunds of course ) and buy a new
connection from scratch, thusly pay installation fees of INR 3500 for
the new device or such. The dude told me to contact the Nodal Officer
Sugna Shetty ( 022 65102309 ) if I wanted to complain about this.

FYI, Tata Indicom CDMA USB modem (the post Photon version) is totally
useless in sector 14 Vashi where I stay now.
Tata Indicom support staff (Vashi) tell me "Sector 14 mein
'feasibility' nahi hai saar".
From day one, Tata Indicom has been giving me huge
packet losses in
Mankhurd ( 70% to 90%).
I feel cheated by Tata Indicom's wireless internet service and would
not recommend it to any user.
