    Default TATA Indicom Photon is Best

    Yesterday i went in TATA indicom Shop their i saw TATA indicom photon demo. I checked speed on 2 sites it shows me 1.8 mbps and 2 mbps while download speed i checked by downloading songs it shows 25 to 30 speed. Not bad compare to plug to surf. It's best option for USB data card user. Compare to other USB data card photon giving good download speed.

    The new USB Modem device forming part of its Photon service also allows you to make voice calls, Send & Receive SMS. It also supports your Laptop/Desktop PC earphone and microphone.

    Thumbs down it is definetly a joke.

    I found photon+ is the worst internet service ever in my life. I am sure the person who is writting "good" for photon+ is from the tata teleservices itself.

    the device is worst, speed is too slow (as slow as 153.6 kbps)
    customer care persons are good for nothing....

    I request you, please dont confuse others. it is a seen........................

    the downloading speed on photon drops to 30-40kbps when u start d/w big files but while surfing its around 1.8-2 mbps they throttle the speed as soon as you start heavy d/w

    I think the same thing they are doing to me even with my limite plan for which I pay 882rupees for only 120 hours a month!

    the servers I hardly use are at 150 or moe kBPS and those I use the most with premium acc are at 6-7 kBps..a fall of 170-180 kBps in speed over night as with premium acc I used to get 200 almost everytime in peak hour(morning3-30 to 5-20 am)

    If it is not solve in 2 days I will atleast make 15-20 members get rid of their photon plus in chennai only,I am utterly disgusted with them

    Cool Tata photon-Best (or Worst?)


    Went today to tata indicom show room to extend my Photon Plus (usually 30 day expiry) & charged Rs 250/250 mb/30 days. I still have more than 6 GB (left over from a 10 Gb/Rs 1350/30 days /recharge/3 months ago).

    Still 10 Gb costs Rs 1200 (No ! we dont un limited bull **** @1 x speed) .
    I told them 3 G -15 Gb @ 3 mbps is selling around Rs 1500. So they should price 2 G -10Gb @ Rs 500-700 !!
    They were saying their network ( CDMA) quality is better.
    Then I told them the same technology/similar speeds - is available with BSNL EVDO un limited @ Rs 750. They were eager to pack me off and attend the next customer..
    They are basically catching newbies ( like I was a year back -when I wanted mobile broad band).

    From your posts - I come to know that they are screwing their post paid hourly customers with reduced speed. ( like BSNL 3G is shifting the 6 months U/L customers)
    But Photon Plus Pre paid GB Data pack customers are getting full speed (1 Mbps usually) as they hope we will finish it faster and come back for more !

    Thumbs down Biggest cheaters

    Please don't go by the original post, that must be some marketing guy from Tata Indicom. They should change their slogan from "I carry speed" to "I carry s**t". I'm a victim of their Photon Plus pre-paid plan. Their customer care is hopeless, to say the least. They don't stick to their SLAs. They will solve your problem only "tomorrow". I'm still waiting for that "tomorrow".

    Lightbulb Tata photon

    if any of you haven't use MTS try it, ask for demo at your home from MTS. I am sure you will forgot TATA photon. though MTS is new in market but it is proving very cheap data plans. one of the rocking plan is 999rs 12gb(3.1 mbps)+CDMAx1(144kbps) after 12gb uses, and another rocking plan is near about ~490rs 3GB(3.1 mbps) data.whereas photon just give 1gb at 3.1 mbps for price of near about 500rs. And MTS speed is rocking too, even more than TATA photon. i have used both of them in very good connectivity area and found MTS really Rocks.....
    just Give a try and I am sure you will save nearly 6000rs per year(500 per month) with MTS(Cheap plans)
    Thanks

    I've recently bought Tata Photon. I'm highly disappointed with the service. They have junks in their customer care who even cut the call, if pressed for resolution or escalation. I've never seen such a behavior with any of the service provider.

    I've submitted the verification form twice. But it was mishandled by Tata Photon and they've disconnected my connection despite promising to activate it within a day. I've made more than 20 calls and emails. Every time I got a different response from the customer care. The issue was dragged for a month despite SLA breach and several request for 48 hours extension. Finally, they've stopped responding to my emails.

    Overall it was a worst experience. Please.. Please .. Please do not buy a tata Photon even if some one offers it free. I'm saying this despite being a tata employee. It doesn't fit to be in a Tata group.

    I can share the conversation I've had with helpdesk. It was a painful experience.
