Tata DOCOMO has joined its rivals Vodafone, Airtel and Idea Cellular by drastically slashing its 2G and 3G data volume-based charging (VBC) tariffs by 90 per cent. The reduced rates will be applicable from July 1 for its existing as well as new pre-paid GSM customers.

The revised tariffs will be applicable on 2G data packs — RC 126 (2GB for 30 days), RC 149 (2.5GB for 30 days) and RC 249 (3GB for 60 days) and 3G data pack — RC 255 (2GB for 30 days) and other circle specific packs in the similar segment.

Once customers exhaust their free 2G or 3G data quantum, they can continue to access high-speed mobile Internet by paying only 1 paisa per 10 kb instead of the earlier 10 paise per 10 kb data; thereby enjoying a 90 per cent discount.

This proposition will be applicable even while customers are roaming on Tata DOCOMO GSM network nationally, the company said.

“This promotional offer reinforces our position as a pioneer in providing innovative and value for money services to our customers.

“Customers can now enjoy uninterrupted, high-speed mobile Internet access at the most attractive prices available in the market. This will increase data penetration across segments and a 90 per cent discount will serve as a customer-friendly yet clear differentiator for our customers.” said Gurinder Singh Sandhu, Head Marketing, Tata DOCOMO.
