    Hi ..i am from Pune and basically use my tataindicom broad band 384 unlimited connection for gaming online and downloading movies....

    When the connection is on...trust me ...its the best internet till now in my city...as i have used BSNL 2 mbps in my work place which is crappier....

    The real picture comes out when u r in trouble and u have to talk to the uneducated CC guys (who learn english thru speaking course probably) who r just sitting there and give me a feeling that my complaint is falling on deaf ears and a Complaint no generating machine...

    The CC guys r more worried on giving u a complaint no rather trying to understand the problem...Do they get paid more and a pat on their back from their TL if they give out more complaint nos on a day...GOD KNOWS....

    After that the long wait for the Invisible Service person...whom i have not seen till today......

    God only know how Tata INd...company is still surviving...probably only because of the nonsense tolerating nature of Indians.....but i am sure this will be over soon...

    i have received a bill of 2500 for downloading done in october because of the billing software, i agree that i had downloaded some trial software that time but i keep a track on my downloads which is 5000mb each month, so i never tracked October after i paid for that month.. how can you charge your customer for october in decmber? morover the connection in down minimum 3 times in a month & mostly on weekend when i use it the most.

    To add insult to injury i am getting braodband bills from BSNL in my phoen bill for last three months which i dont have, when trying to file a complaint they are asking me to prove that i dont have BB from BSNL. how can i prove that ?? they must prove that i had takn a connection.. it amazing... i am really upset with the state internet is in our country.

    Thumbs down Wimax sucks

    I have been using Tata Indicom Wireline Broadband serivces for more than 2 years, there have not been any problme except few of the time whenever you need their services.

    Their Customer Services are big time failure.

    Now they move me to the Wimax services as a part of their drive and it just doesnt work whenever i require.

    I am just with Tata indicom as i dont have much options available at my place.

    I am using Tata Indicom's 384 unlimited plan.
    The guy who installed it for me told me :
    A. That the max speeds I will get is 30 Kbps
    B. There might be intermittent losses once in a while.

    However, in the past year or so, i have not seen a single unsolicited outage (except when there were power outages). Also, invariably, I get speeds of 35-40 Kbps for longer downloads as well (uptp 700 MB).

    All in all, I think Tata Indicom rocks.

    Since you are on 384 kbps plan, ideally u should be getting 48 kBps. U can shift to 256kbps plans and enjoy the same speeds which you are enjoying now, but at a lower price.

    i don't know who said this to you ... i am using tata indicom 384 UL connection and i get more than the mentioned speed constantly all the time ... here is a snap of the DU meter stopwatch average download speed for a period of 2min 30 seconds ....



    these kind of rumours about speed only spoils the reputation of a good ISP

    From my side, i give 100 to tata indicom. I have been using tataindicom broadband in my house for last 8 months from now. The connection was served to me after 1 month after filling the form. They said your house is at a very long distance from our nearest connection. My house was just on some 50 feet from their last connection.

    Also, It costs me about Rs.500 per month for 1GB download, which is slightly more costly when you compare it with other broadband service providers. Their service has disappointed me n am thinking to try BSNL service. They are very reliable and there support is simply great.

    Got to experience tata indicom today at Toyota's customer lounge while waiting for my vehicle to be looked at. I should say that i am impressed with the speeds which i got to experience in that connection today. It was just blazing and i felt like i was using my BSNL 2mbps.

    Do you think the BSNL speed is better than Tata Indicom. If yes, then could you please tell me which plan would be better for me as i keeps downloading.

    Well BSNL is a wired connection. So it is bound to be stable at all times unlike wireless connection*. The experience which i had yesterday with Tata indicom maybe an isolated case. BSNL's H500 plans are the best IMO. During the free time, i am able to clock 5.5GB worth download.

    I read some bad reviews but I have had an ok experience with Indicom so far, apart from a batched up installation job which gave me a signal strength of 27 but no connectivity. This was resolved by logging a complaint within 24 hours and after that its been smooth sailing for past 3 months.

    Hope it continues..

    Always ensure u have good telephone cabling and that the exchange is at moderate distance from your house. Else it will be the worst ISP money can ever be invested on.

    Hey,

    I am quite happy with Tata.

    The customer care is a bit not satisfying but hardly situation comes to call them. The connection is working perfectly fine with negligible issues.

    People who are happy with tata...
    BAKRE KI MAAN KAB TAK KHAIR MANAYEGI!
    one day they'll surely do something u can't even imagine,

    Those who are unsatisfied..
    You won't be satisfied after using any other broadband either, they're all the same... It's business U C...
    Fooling the customer,

    @Offtopic
    We are currently studying Business Ethics and I truly wonder Y V R made to read such crap? When all the companies can do is to first attract a customer to his stable and then start wringing his neck...

    My only wish, may they themselves get a taste of what they give to us...

    Cheers to the business policies of such companies!

    Default Tata-indicom takes back the wimax antenna and harass customers

    In bangalore, the tata-indicom has a different kind of strategy of taking back the wimax antenna and asking the customer to pay for its replacement.

    This happened with me, sadly the next day after its installation itself.and i paid for broadband connection for 4 months in advance(4400/-).

    when i call the customer care repetitively, everytime they say that the issue is open and will request concerned authorities.
    and the nodal officer says that their field engineers havent collected the antenna and will be replaced only if i pay 7700/- for the antenna.

    Earlier(some 6 months back) one of my friend faced this kind of issue and after repetitive requests and harassment, they finally gave back his antenna.

    I think now a days they are planning not to give back the antenna and trying to make money out of it.
    i have read some reviews on this kind of cases, this was mainly happening in bangalore from last 3-4 months.

    I am planning to wait for some more time and if i dont get any positive response, i will file in consumer forum.

    Cool Happy

    I've bee a Tataindicombroadband customer for the last 18 months (1 1/2 yrs), and I'm quite happy with it. NEVER had a SINGLE day of downtime.

    I called their custome service twice regarding queries, and was promptly responded to with all details. Never had to call them for fixing downtime though.

    My planshave been 256 or 384 or 512 unlimited. Consistently been getting the full speed even with torrents. Happy with their "manage my account" feature on their website, I can happily change between their plans.

    Only issue is I keep crossing the 40gb-a-month fair usage mark within 3 weeks every month, and they call me and "inform" me to stay within the fair usage mark. Yeah yeah. Up yours pal.

    Default No guaranteed service and customer care sucks

    I took a Tata wimax 512 for my office primarily because of the static IP address included in their Business Plan. Service was great for Month #1. But mid-way (15 May 09) thru Month #2, service levels dropped to under 10%. Effectively the antenna couldn't connect with the transmitter.

    Three compliants later and 4 visits by service engineers there's still this terrible connection! The reasons for poor quality include birds flying through the beam, people walking (in mid air??? -- The Mahesh Yogi will be jealous) and antenna in wrong position. (Hey Dudes! You Tata guys installed the antenna. Duh!)

    I got super-pissed this AM and whacked the wimax box. And Voila! After 2 weeks of zero connectivity managed to get a 50% signal. I think I'll give the box a kick Beckham-style next and see if makes things better. It can't get worse

    In Month #1 when I was still elated I decided to get a connection at home. Except it seems if you are higher than the transmitter (I live in a house on a hill) you can't get service either; even if there's nothing between you and the transmitter!

    Customer Care remind me of puppies. All slobbery drool (supposedly attentive) but that doesn't achieve anything!

    I'll probably cancel and use good old BSNL

    Default Update on service...

    Hi All,

    My last post was in Oct'08 and my TATA BROADBAND connection (and their service) still rocks!

    A piece of advice (after seeing some very rude posts) - please behave cordially with the customer support people and you will be surprised with the results. This applies not just to TATA but to any vendor in any sector. Put yourself in their shoes!

    Best wishes.
    Please read signature rules.

    Thumbs down TATA Broadband Pathetic Service - Always Local Server down in Coimbatore 641006

    I am having TATA COMMUNICATIONS broadband connection in coimbatore. For the past 5 weeks (from may 15th to june 20th 2009) their LOCAL SERVERS have been DOWN very very frequently, about NINE TIMES. The last being on 17th june 2009, till today its not rectified. Takes about 15-30 minutes to log a complaint in their call center. I spoke to the 1st level customer service personnel to the floor level supervisor to the Manager numerous times, sometimes even 2-3 times in day.. no results so far. The call center guys has always have a standard reply "pls give us a last chance, within 6 business hours it will be rectified" what a joke!. I Went personally to their local office in Coimbatore and there is no designated person to handle customer complaints, there are only technical engineers and they don't bother about customer service! They dont even seem to monitor their LOCAL SERVERS. Only after a customer logs a complaint they try to wake up from their sleep. I have tried all means to get their attention from visiting their local office, to call center to Continuous mails to their NODAL OFFICER in chennai and nobody seems to care. VERY PATHETIC ATTITUDE SPOILING TATA BRAND. [after several visits to their office, the reception guy who takes complaints finally allowed to talk to one engineer named Kumarasen 9281053005 who said will follow up the issue, only god knows..]

    Angry worse response to tecnical related issues

    when ever the net is not working . Their speed of response is very poor . They do not care for their customers . They only use one word 'work in progress'. There is no one responsible. There is no commetment and assureance . There is no proper explanation as to why there is a delay . we do not know whom to approach during unexpected dalay . These call center are only trained to say that , we will forward your request to our seniors by adding priority comment . inspite of calling 5 - 6 times in 24 hrs , there is no reaction or response .


    I FIRMLY SUGGEST DO NOT USE TATABROADBAND SERVICES . THEY ONLY LOOK FOR PROFIT AND DO NOT CARE FOR CUSTOMER SERVICE .

    THANK GOD WE HAVE OTHER ALTERNATIVE .

    I too had a bitter experience with tata indicom. That is why I switched to Airtel. Airtel is definitely much much better than tata indicom, though it is a bit costly!!

    i am using Tata indicom ADSL broadband service for the past 5 years and i will say, that i am 60 percent satisfied with their service.

    signed up for Tata indicom back in 2005 and it started with a time based plan of 30 hours per month and a monthly rental of 800 bucks. the speed was 512kbps and download speed was 64KB/s in utorrent. the speed was consistent.

    over the course of time, time based plan was insufficient and switched to their business plan of 3GB per month. i was using a ADSL USB modem. i have had no issues with the speed as it was always constant.

    my adsl usb modem died slowly and now i have got the TAD100(teracom) adsl2+ modem and changed to the Flash 384 plan which is too good.

    only problem now is that it is expensive compared to the other ISPs. i pay 1300 bucks per month and i do get disconnections atleast once per month and they take minimum of 3 days to rectify it. am always thinking of switching to BSNL's 500 plan, i wud be saving 700 bucks per month.

    Hey guys, not to break the flow or anything but I've been using Tata Indicom BB since June 2007 and have been relatively happy with their service. Sure there were times when they totally slept on their job and didn't attend to queries quickly which made me pull out my hair at times. But since the past year or so when I switched to their Wimax connection (before i was using a Dsl connection) things have been better. Sure i have some occasional slow speeds and very very rare disconnectivity but for the most part they have been better too. Maybe i was just lucky or the stars were shining on me or just that they are able to offer good service in my area I don't know, but I do have to give 'em credit.

    Thumbs down CRAPYYYY Tata Indicom

    TATA indicom photon sucksssssssssssssssssss..............

    i got this Tata indicom photon+ in Mumbai on a rush thinking being well advertised and Tata brand, it gtta be good. Called the agent home who assured me that being pre-paid it would work in major cities like Delhi and Bangalore etc. This was Dec 2009 when i got 1 GB plan for Rs.650/-.

    It worked awesome with very good speed for a month in between which out of curiosity i called the customer care to know how much of my allotted limit/GB's have i used? or in other words how much more i can use etc. For which none of those people back-end could comprehend information in their systems . Being pre-paid it would show a balance of Rs. 2 only ( again something they dont understand) whereas your recharge amount would be whtever it is like my Rs.650/- which also never was in their system.

    Jan 2010 my 1 month got over, with the customer care still clueless about my limit etc. and i didnt get my next recharge immediately which should be ok in prepaid coz that is part of the facility, that it should work whenever i want i can recharge and use.

    Feb 2010 i put in another Rs. 650/- after which whenever i plug in the USB and try to connect it would show that my "user-name password invalid on the domain". Called cust-care maharashtra whose IVR rattles off in marathi ( i am not a marathi hence cannot comprehend what the lady is saying) ... call the darn agent who sold me the device and he says some utterly stupid stuff and refuses to pick my calls. Called Delhi customer care who refuse to identify a Maharashtra number under their domain, for work i later travel to Bangalore, where the customer care tells me "Madam, i have not made the product" ...

    Somehow get through the Delhi customer care number who dont reject customers based on the region the number belongs to ... and they as usual are clueless and say that it is a technical error. called technical team and they ask me to re-install. i do, the thing again doesnt work shows same error ....

    Found an alternate source of internet and hence wasted my Rs.650/- on the photon and let it be till about May 2010 end when i wanted the photon functional. Another series of locating dealers in delhi ( they tinkering with my photon USB and even my laptop for possible errors) dont have a clue on how to get it functional. Found Tata Indicom technicians in an area called Vikaspuri in Delhi and they tinker with my Photon and check its circuits etc aftr like a 2 hour wait ( where other really frustrated indicom users were screamin around and having a verbal duel with the highly complacent staff) ..... the device they say is fine and hand me 1800266121 as another Photon specific customer care number to call... i call the number to a highly idiotic/dumb executive who again cannot comprehend information i ask.. what is my usage? why is the number blocked? what does my error mean? what am i supposed to do next? - the answers were in the tune of " ummmmmmmm... repeat the error" ( like 20 times), " check your laptop/system", "your balance is 0", "your user-name and pswd will be told by our technical team", " we will escalate the matter" ... hehe they must have escalated and sent 1000's of emails to other equally dim-witted *^%##'s. The technical team is clueless on the phone on what to do and hence tell me that they will send somebody to my residence in 2 days by 9:33 am of the 2nd day... 1 day passes, i call em back to confirm time .. they ask me to wait till 9:33 am of day 2. Day 2 9 am i call to ask whether they gnna perform a miracle in 1/2 n hr and i really flip! ... he asks me to wait nontheless.... i mean HOW DUMB CAN THOSE PEOPLE BE?????!!!! ... they send nobody and nothing is done!


    i return to the Vikas puri technical centre of Tata Indicom and narrate what happened with the 1800266121 number provided.....now ask me to shuttle around to a Tata Indicom co-co centre i.e. True Value service where the Relationship executive clearly tells me that finding backend info is NOT his work and hence has a verbal duel with the cust-care on the phone and the technical person who sent me there. They "escalate" complaints against each other... i am in d meanwhile frying in the Delhi heat being made to run to and fro!!!

    I threaten the technician and raise voice levels to subdue every other complainant in their office and he tells me he will ask a senior frm their Jail Road, Tilak Nagar ( delhi) office called Anjali to contact me "immediately"... hehe AS expected its the next day today ... and no "immediate" call from the lady ....

    now buy and get stuck at your own peril!!!

    Pardon the intrusion, i am a Reliance guy, my only exchange with Tata was when they denied me a connection for "feasibility" reasons, and it turned out to be a good thing for me too.
    I have said this on the You com subforum, and i say this here, why on earth don't you use the readily available online tools to determine the quality of your ISP and compare those test results instead of discussing your experiences subjectively. Unless of course, you are discussing customer support and billing related issues.

    I am on the 600 kbps plan @ 649 plus taxes per month which includes a modem and landline telephone with 150 free calls, installed free of charge without any deposit. And 600 kbps does not mean 512 kbps.

    Default Dont go for TATA Indicom Broadband(Worst ISP)

    Hi guys,

    I have experienced very bad service provided by TATA Indicom.

    I have taken TATA Indicom service twice and both the times the service was not good. Our internet connection goes down in night time, whereas works fine in day time(Which is very annoying). This happened from past 3 months or so. And forget about the wifi connection, it's really not that great, if you raise complain for disconnectivity then they(TATA Indicom Costomer care) will tell you that there are some building in between the receiver and transmitter that are affecting your connection(Which i feel is not genuine reason). And i have paid 1100 Rs/month which is higher than any other ISP with best services. They take the money in advance and then dont provide service because they are getting money so they dont worry in providing good service afterwards. I wont be going for TATA Indicom in future. So if you reading this thread of mine then please avoid going for TATA Indicom broadband(either Wired or Wifi) unless no other ISP is available in your Area.

    ]Really Worst ISP(TATA Indicom) i have ever experienced.

    @Grimrocker: You've put it down pretty well. I was also lucky for quite a while, but not so lately.

    Since the poll is closed, I'd just put in my rating here. In all fairness, I'd rate their service: 3.5/10.

    Default Change Needed

    It's surprising to see that there are a good 37% people complaining about the horrifying service of Tata Indicom, but we as qualified professionals are not ready to do anything about it. Let me ask you this. All of us are in a service industry today, with some minimal interaction with clients from other countries.

    In our interactions with them, do you think they would take such nonsense from us and if not, then why are we taking all this? If we are in the habit of delivering great services why aren't these companies?

    We need to raise a voice and a voice that can be heard. I can't see a reason as to why when so many people can complain, why can't we push these issues to a Tata Indicom and make them work on it. They would not leave us if we don't pay our bills so why should we leave them if they don't deliver.

    We need to build the change and ensure we get what we are paying for. After all, we are not asking more, right?

    Cool Used Tata Indicom ADSL Broadband as pre paid for 3-4 years

    In 2005 I got a Tata Indicom pre paid broadband (256kbps unlimited at that time). Later put a router to share 3-4 pcs at home with 386kbps unlimited .
    I used to recharge Rs3000+ every 3-4months. I stay in heart of town .so I never had any down time issues. But I have seen lot of customers shouting at their office when I go to renew.
    It was reliable and got a service rep with in 24 hours if there was a problem.
    But Tata is expensive right now compared to airtel/reliance or BSNL.
    Since we are using 2 USB broadband (Reliance & Tata photon) in our respective notebooks most of the time,stopped renewing tata wired broadband.
    Right now no wired broad band at home. BSNL UL 1100 will be my choice if i need a wired broad band . ( but a pain in the ass to go to BSNL office,liason with JE, line men etc and get it done)

    I paid a sum of 1124/- for the 256 infiniti plan.I have submitted my pan card, and the identity card of my company, along

    with the check of HDFC. I think this was on the 27th.

    On the 29th I had a verification call, and the next day evening that is on the 30th evening at 3:00 when i was at my work

    place, I had this installation incharge ( Mr. Chandrasekhar Rao) come to my home for installation, and has called me from my

    dad's mobile ( my dad was in my house then), and informed me that he has installed. He never performed a browsing check, but

    he took a signature from my dad, saying that the installation is complete.(P.S: My dad is not aware of internet, and stuff).

    My dad asked him to open any website, and show it. And he said it will come within 15 minutes.

    And i came back home, and found it was not connected, and the data light on the modem was not responding.I called up mr

    chandrsekhar on the number he left in my house. He picked up the fone and said he will call me back after 10 minutes, after

    i reported the problem. I agreed to that and hung up the fone.And it was after one hour's wait that i had decided to call him

    back, as he has not turned up. I called him for about 25 times !!!, and he never picks up the fone, and it was already 9:30

    by then.So i called up the customer care at 60607070 and registered a complaint. The next day morning on the 1st december, i

    called him again, and he does not pick the fone. And again, I have tried from a different number, and he picks up

    immediately.'Now he says he will come to my house at 12:00 in the noon'.I waited till 1:30 and no response yet. I called up

    the customer care guys, again, and they say they have registered an other complaint, and they will get back to me for sure

    that day. I waited. And now a guy comes to my house, and checks the information ( router settings) and asks "ME" what

    happened. I had to tell him the whole story again, and he says, That is not his responsibility, and it is only the job of the

    installation guy, and goes away. Now i call him, form the same number which i have called that dat morning( chandrasekhar

    rao). Now he does not pick up the fone. I had called him several times. I went out and tried from my friend's mobile, and he

    picks up the fone, now. I kept my cool, and asked him an update about the same, he says, he will make sure, it is done that

    day, and claims he has known the problem area. I havent disturbed him till that evening. In the evening at 6:00 I call him,

    and he cuts thye fone, I call him again, and some one else picks up the fone, and says, He is not there !!!.

    December 2nd:

    Morning i tried calling him, and he never picks up the call!. I called the customer care again, two times the same day, and

    they say, somebody will be calling me and they never never called me. I waited, under the benifit of luxury that its a

    sunday.
    December 3rd:
    Monday, evening, Mushtaq calls me from the TATA INDICOM office, and he starts trouble shooting, on fone. I asked him to go to

    my place, He says, its simple and refused to come to my home.As i was in office, I asked him to call me by 7:00. He did!(

    good sign atlast, somebody stands on his word). I was there at my computer, after two hours of trouble shooting, he

    identifies, that wrong cabling was done.( after he realises that the DSL(link) light does not respond, even if he downs the

    link from his end.And now he says, the cabling guy, will go only in the morning, as there will be no lights.as it is already

    8:30.I had no other choice, but to go back to my office, as i cant connect to VPN any more.Mushtaq says, that the cabling guy

    will only go at 10:00. And he says, that i will get a call and then, They will come down to my house. I told him that i will

    go late to the office, the next day, and he promised, more sincerely.

    December 4th:its 10:00 , and no one calls me, its 11:00 no one calls me, 11:30 i call up the tata indicom, technical guys

    landline number ( which i have stored the previous day) and they pick up the fone, and cut it right away, for 3 times, while

    i have continuously been calling them, for about 10-15 times. Now i havent given up, after abnout 30 times, mushtaq picks up

    the fone, and says " yes". I kept my cool, despite all the frustration, i have. I identify myself, and ask him about the

    update and he asks, some KK to tell him the status, gets back to me, and says," I have told them now, they are leaving, and

    now you will get it in an hour.If not please let me know." I asked him to give me his mobile number, and he says he doesnt

    have the mobile number. And then, after requesting, he gives me his mobile number.After one hour nothing happened. I call him

    up, and then he says, he will send an engineer. And the engineer never came, I had to start to my work place, and i Left to

    the office. I call him from my office, he claims, it has been done, and i ask my folks at home to test. AND guess what sir? (

    it's the same).I called the guy, he says, the engineer is on his way. I called him after 2 hours, he said, the engineer just

    started he will come. At 7:00 I call him, and he says, within thirty minutes the guy will be at my house, and again and

    again, I have to call, them, They never take accountability and call m e.I am not a very rich person, And i have spent about

    110/- on my mobile. "ONLY" for these calls. Now he too has started disconnecting the fone.I had no option and have decided to

    ask for refund. Now, i call the customer care, guy ( with a balance of 25 rs). I am kept on wait ( understandable). I try to

    reach the billing department, to ask for refund.He says, he sees my log and starts apologizing, with which i have been vexed

    up already. I quickly asked him for refund or to put to the supervisor. Now, he says, one sec, and puts me on to Dubey form

    tech team, and this guy ( inspite of having the complaint logs on his screen) asks me, about the lights status, as if i dont

    know anything about it,and asked him to transfer me to the supervisor, he put me on wait until he gave me his, complaint

    number ( which i dont care about). I explained him that my mobile balance is very low, and asked him to put across the,

    supervisor, immediately, he wouldn;t do that. He wants to give the complaint number, ( like he is trained before his call

    centre career started).And that guy never comes up.,...... AND MY BALANCE IS left with only 60 paise.

    I call up Mushtaq on his number, and he JUST DISCONNECTS his fone. And now, after a while ( that is when i have started

    writing thispost( which took about half an hours productive time of mine, and ofcourse, it would take the same productove

    time of your's)i call him up and he disconnects., and even now, when i am writing this , and there you go " switched off this

    time.
    From the legal point of view, i can penalise these guys in the consumer court, and also under the sections 24 and 415 for

    cheatign

    --THATS "TATA" INDICOM!!!

    @ Tata Indicom
    I have had first hand experience with your customer care and I personally wont recomend any of your products. I was a die hard fan of Tata sky but you did your best to make me think otherwise and you just succeed in doing that as well. The only Tata product I now use is Tata sky and that too because I have invested in a few of your set top boxes and it would cost me a lot of money to switch... Be assured I will make the switch as soon as the set top box economics changes in my favor.
    Your Tata sky guys been deducting money from my account for over a year for the service they haven't been providing all this time and now you refuse to refund or even look into it.
