    Default What’s the speed on 975 recharge (3.6 or 7.2 mbps )?

    Hi ,


    I have recharged 975 plan on aircel 3g, I got 2.5 GB for 30 days.




    Before recharging I have asked aircel executive in aircel office that are aircel towers in Warangal capable of 7.2 mbps, he replied it has got nothing to do with towers sir , speed depends upon only on recharge what you do.

    After recharging I came to know that towers at my place are capable of only 3.6 mbps. I am using umg 1831.



    Guys it’s not only in BSNL ,even private operators do provide wrong info & cheat us. The only reason why I took aircel 3g is becoz of poor browsing from BSNL at my place.

    Current aircel speed

    @mdheeraj86


    Even if the tower is capable of 7.2Mbps, your assigned profile shows only 3.6Mbps.

    Yes, I am also having the list of plans offered by Aircel show room. The 975 plan is 7.2Mbps.

    You should make a complaint to the Customer Service. They may not be aware that we can check the assigned profile / speed through MDMA.

    So, the struggle continues here also ( like with BSNL )!

    No updates on this.

    called CC twice and made complaint , i have also sent e-mail.....i should be getting

    avg speed of 4-5 mbps if this plan runs on 7.2 mbps.... RIGHT?

    Downlink shows 3.6 mbps when i checked in MDMA

    Browsing 100 times better than BSNL 3G ,haven't had a single disconnection

    on aircel 3G until now.....I looks i have to stick to aircel as i don't have many

    ISP's at my place ,though it's costly


    Current AIRCEL 3G speed on 975 plan.

    browsing has always been good in AIRCEL for me.

    At times latency is high ( it's common in wireless connection right ? mostly u

    will have it in between 150-250 ms.

    3G tariff too high but i don't have many ISP's at my place.

    I am thinking to have MTS in may, it has low network congestion when

    compared to others.

    If BSNL improves it's service i will get back to it again.

    This 2G>3G trick is good only for downloads not for browsing ,adding to that

    it doesn't connect every time

    Default MTS Emblaze just introduced in Andhra

    MTS Emblaze -CDMA-similar to photon/Reliance Net Connect/BSNL Evdo
    works ok if the signal is good.
    My next door neighbour in chennai is using it.
    last month they had an offer Rs 999-modem + 999 1 month un limited.( I think the offer is still on) FUP -12 GB
    But the best plan thy have is Rs 1000/ plan.
    Rs 500-700 will give you only 2-3 GB.
    If you want to spend Rs 1000/12 Gb- then go far it.(I heard Roaming is not automatic) and not Carry forwardable ( That is why I did not go for it + Andhra -till recently only 1X speed not Emblaze)

    MTS - MTS voice is very cheap. Lot of cost consious people in TN are using MTS voice when they gave too good offers when they launchecd
    Rs 500 CDMA phone.
    That kind of people dont want to change phone and dont mind MTS phone only beacause of very cheap MTS to mTS tariff ( free I think)
    In Tamilnadu -MTS Emblaze BB-good coverage.
    recently when I was in OOty- Photon was dead- Only BSNL+ MTS had coverage in the hill station.
    Ask the MTS show room guy to bring his net book+modem and check signal strength in your house or use your freind's modem in your laptop first.
    Unlike GSM modem-CDMA modems are dead money!!

    oops i thought mblaze have carry forward option.

    i think tata photon + has carry forward option , i will go for that next month.


    Does reliance net connect plus & bsnl have carry forward option?

    i won't spend 1000 a month......i will always prefer carry forward option, just like aircel 975 plan which has carry foward option.

    If i don't download any thing 1.5 Gb is enough for browsing 2 me

    Tata Photon Plus -pre paid -if you have 80-90% signal in your home- is ok.
    You will get 0.5 to 1 mbps max but browsinfg is ok.
    You can charge Rs 1000-10 Gb and next month charge (minimum-30 day coupon) rs 250-250 mb and carry forward. ( the way Iam doing for the last 4-5 months as Iam using BSNL 3G etc)
    My wife has comapny given Reliance netconnect- it is good .
    we have compared Photon/Net connect -side by side in our rspective note books.
    Reliance is slightly better+ all India Coverage ! (photon not so).
    I went and thouroghly analysed Reliance net connect before I bought Photon.
    Reliance is good for post paid only with a fixed monthly expense. Net connect pre paid is more expensive compared to photon and not carry forwardable ( at that time)
    If I dont travel and stay at home I dont need a fixed high commitment on mobile broad band - So I thought at that time.
    Now in 2011-after 3 G- I have lot of options.

    I suggest you explore "the antennae" to improve 3 G signal too instead of investing rs 1800 or so in a new CDMA modem ( can not use for any thing else un like GSM modems)
    For heavens sake dont take any "time based plan " ( I mean 100 hours/200 hours etc)
    they royally screw by slow speed ( like bsnl is doing in un limited 3g plan)

    Any way go to Reliance web site/show room and analyse "pre paid only" plans and see c/f ok.
    if not check whether photon signal is good in your case and you can go as it is carry forwardable.

    But they will hit you for rs 1800 or so for the modem ( I paid Rs 2400 last year!)



    [QUOTE=mdheeraj86;324880]
    & bsnl have carry forward option?
    You are in a better position to check this out as I have one and the only Rs 4200/6months 3G sim. ( till july 2nd week)
    In your current BSNL 3G -Rs 606 (1+5GB) sim- keep some 200-mb un used balance on the 29th day and
    recharge rs 100-250 mb or rs 200-500 mb-as per latest bsnl 3G recharge plans )

    and see whether it carry forwards in to the day time usage mb balance
    or terminates the left over 200 mb and starts afresh with the new pack.

    1800 is just one time investment for device , 1800+1000 = 2800, it's a bit high in a month but have to go for it. later on 300-400 rs wouldn't be that expensive for me ( as it has carry forward option)

    I had enough with BSNL 3G right now EVDO looks better option for me

    I have good signal in tata photon at my home.

    I Also have bsnl land line connection, i thought of going for home 500 c + plan

    but i am worried about their wrong charges . some where in this forum some one got bill for night usage also . That guy has 2-8 unlimited in 500+ plan.

    You will have any 1 problem out of this 3 in bsnl 3g

    1) horrible browsing
    2) speed cap ( don't know when they will cap speeds for which plan)
    3) frequent disconnections


    Thanks ulysses for your detailed info, i still have 2GB left in aircel 3g , probably it will end in may as i only use for browsing.
    I will only take decision only in may. If i find any decrease in aircel 3g tariff say 2 Gb for 700 instead of 975 for 2.5Gb i will go for aircel instead of new EVDO connection.
    If i wanted to download anything i will downgrade my 3g sim and i will recharge 98(2gb) or 270(6gb) and migrate again back to 3g and use when it get's connected only
    I may go again back 2 bsnl 3g data plans if they provide me good service as they did last year. i had same signal strength form last 1 year & browsing was good last year, it was even good in first half of 606 plan.
    i don't have any day or night balance left in 606 plan.

    Still i got 1.5 GB left in this plan & it's expiring on 5th may, as aircel has carry forward option on may 5th i will recharge with 92 pack ( 100 mb @ 3.6 mbps for 30 days) and my speed will be limited to 3.6 mbps.

    On 975 plan my avg speeds are in between 3- 5 mbps
