    vodafone sticks work on edge network and are slow..
    use your own mobile and aircel connection for less than 100/month...
    you dont even need to purchase a modem for that...

    Vodafone is offering 3g usb stick for free with the annual package of Rs7499 which comes with unlimited downloads.

    Im wondering what kind of speed can we expect?

    Any idea guys

    As of now, only BSNL & MTNL offer 3G services in GSM. All other GSM service providers offer only EDGE/GPRS service.

    even though the data card is 3G capable, the actual speed would be EDGE/GPRS only.

    However, the same device can be used with 3G services once the same is launched by Vodafone

    Lightbulb Review of Vodafone 3G USB stick

    Currently the stick works on GPRS/EDGE network because Vodafone as of now does not provide 3G services. I have used it in various places in Delhi and in Bangalore also. The speed I got in Delhi was anytime better than that in Bangalore. In Delhi there was difference in speed at different places. Overall I found it fair enough for normal mail and browsing coverage. But if you are looking for watching online videos or some big downloads, I would suggest you should go in for TATA Photon+. I have used that too, it is wonderful. I have watched videos on youtube and had some big downloads with good speed.
    But now I am using BSNL 3G with my SONY ERICSSON XPERIA X1. And 3G rocks. Twice the speed of TATA Photon! Really enjoying 3G ON BSNL. Additionally I am getting free national SMS with 50p per call.

    Unhappy vodafone 3g stick problem

    I very recently purchased vodafone usb 3g stick (model K3570 z). It works fairly well in Kolkata when I took it to my works with my netbook. But it does not work at Uttarpara which is only 10 kms distance suburb of Kolkata. Vdfn's service engineer failed to fix the problem. I think it is their local connectivity problem. Therefore I think it works in metros where the company has stronger network but its performance is doubtful in other areas.

    What is the speed in metros...!! Is it better than normal Vodafone Mobile Connect..?

    I use Vodafone Net ie Vodafone Mobile Connect(VMC) having access point as "www" @ rs 98 for 2 gb ang get a max of 20-34 kbps both in mobile as well as my datacard Huawei UMG1831 which supports speed upto 21.1 Mbps.

    When i use BSNL 3g with my modem it gives upto 350 kilobytes per sec

    Can you please tell me what plan you are using for vodafone and is their any special setting ..

    I am using a usb net connect device as mentioned in my thread. It is purchased from Vodafone Store. I make a monthly recharge of Rs.98/- against which the permissible usage is 2 GB p.m. I have not yet attempted Vodafone's newly launched 3G service. But with the existing EDGE connection, the speed in Kolkata metro area reaches upto 220 kbps with full signal strength available.

    220KBPS means kilobit per sec or Kilobyte per sec

    What is the access point defined in your settings???

    If it is kilobit per sec then the effective speed is 28-35 kilobyte per sec..! that i m already getting in both phone and modem...


    VOdafone yet not launch 3g in kolkata..!! U can see its network but cannot latch on it .. ie register on it. Still in testing Mode.

    Few 3G experience zones(VODAFONE STORES) are declared by vodafone but it will work on their premises ......

    I myself tried to use 3g of vodafone at many places of kolkata like sealdah,tollugunge,santoshpur ..but all showing unable to register .!!
    Hope It will be fixed soon..!!

    Default clarification required please!

    Hi,

    I have purchased a vodafone data stic couple of months back in andhra pradesh. I was told that they would be able to provide 3g speeds in a few months. However, I have now noticed that vodafone did not win the 3g spectrum auction for andhra pradesh circle. So, are they going to lease the spectrum from the other operators or are they going to continue providing me the service over a 2.5g network?

    Thanks.

    so why are you sticking to them, they have cheated you so badly. If I would be in your place then Vodaphone would have forget to cheat any body else in India . Easiest way is to approach consumer court and present your view camly and clearly.

    Wink Vodaphone -Not that bad in Chennai.

    I got aboard Voda train just weeks ago when their 3G was in trial in Chennai (ofcourse free 3G in GPRS prices- no doubt !).

    I have no intention of getting post paid or port to them ever.

    Their customer service sounds ok-( have to pay to talk to CC-no free human help -only Robots if you want free customer service).

    Anyway -I want reviews by any forum members about their Data stick.(K3570)
    CC says it is capable of 21Mbps. Kindly post speedtest.

    For prepaid -Data card@ Rs 1900 + have to buy eiether Rs 549/599 GPRS package.
    ( I have no interest in any GPRS package per se. Just have to use it up in 3G trial before the offer expires)

    Iam aware they will it price 3G much higher than BSNL from April 1st (similar to Airtel/Aircel or may be higher?)

    But the network is good and not clogged like BSNL in the evenings to midnight session.
    So Iam willing to pay a slight premium to Voda 3g vs BSNL's 3G price.

    Going today to Voda store. ( Customer service SMS'd me shop address's at Parrys /Egmore/Mandeveli as we were talking.)

    Matter is not about how much speed you are getting on edge n/w rather why vodaphone is selling usb sticks (capable of providing speeds upto 3.6 or 7.2mbps) to customers without rolling out 3g or even if they had not brought spectrum for particular region.

    As I know, they can also provide 3G services where they had not bought 3G spectrum. Such as AirTel didn't buy 3G spectrum for KOLKATA circle but they are going to tie-up with other operators(those who bought 3G spectrum of KOLKATA) to bring 3G services for it's customers of KOLKATA circle.

    Talking

    Got Vodaphone data card 2 days back@Rs 1600 Prepaid alongwith Rs 599-1 month u/l Gprs pack .
    Software by ZTE is crap and using too much resources.

    The smart cookies in Voda are yet to activate 3G in the new sim bought along with data card. Showing "E" only even though "144" computer says 3G already activated.

    Same Place,Same Android Phone-Same APN settings-Existing other prepaid sim is doing fine with 3G and giving up to 4.5 Mbps.

    So right now using BSNL 3G sim in Voda Data card .( working continously for the last 15 hours and doing fine with the capped speed @ 1mbps )No heating.

    Have to Bye Pass Voda phone software and connect from the modem with BSNL "APN "settings. Getting blue constant (3G) -(Green means Edge)

    I will recharge Rs 98/2GB in the other preapid 3G enabled voda sim and use it in data card and post speed test.

    Angry Voda stick speedtest

    Ref the above post- using the other 3 G sim Rs 98/2GB recharge.
    Since this is voda sim using the voda software itself.
    Getting around 3.5 Mbps.
    http://www.speedtest.net/result/1219446591.png

    But the sim in which Rs 599/UL pack was re charged along with the data card purchase is still in Edge only. After so many calls and mails Iam getting a bullshit reply that my instrument is not 3g !!My phone is 3G and the data card which they sold (thro which Iam writing now)is working in 3 G.
    The ugly truth- Rs 599 pack 1month-they are not enabling 3G signal.(anyway till April 10th only) Keeping that sim in the phone for now.
    I have not unlocked the modem even though I have down loaded DC unlocker.
    Till this free trial is over ,I wont fiddle with this.
    Using BSNL sim and bye passing the Voda software is cumbersome and it has tobe that way till free trial is over.
    Update :

    Voda 3 G speeds in main roads in Metro is fine.
    Their trial for almost 3-4 weeks is very liberal.
    Everybody gave 3G in 2 G prices max 7-10 days.(Aircel,Airtel)
    Their stupid ZTE K3570Z data card is even ok (modem max speed 3.6)
    and giving 3.2 mbps when used with voda and usual 1 Mbps capped speed with Bsnl. So good enough for using BSNL speed capped 3 g sim for next 4 months.

    But the sim they sold along with data card in which I bought the 1 month u/l GpRS pack is restricted at E speed and not 3 G speed. So unfit to use in data card.
    They say "technical problems " prevent that sim to be upgraded to 3 G! They even say they are checking with Income tax!!!.It is a bloody pre paid sim with rs 50 main balance + rs 599 Gprs pack valid for 30 days. It is going to be thrown away on day 31 !
    So Just keeping it in smart phone. But it is handling my 100-300 emails/daily ok with its 20 KBS "E" speed.

    So a slight bitter after taste after enjoying their true 3 G for 2 weeks in Gprs prices !

    Their service is better in the sense Iam getting constant bull **** contradictory replies thro email and phone .( BSNL will never bother to reply !)

    Iam writing this with their data card using the other 3G sim Rs using 98/2GB recharge and getting above 3 mbps.

    To be fair- the Un limited gprs package is supposed to be "E" . If their had been no 3G trial offer in Gprs prices -I would not have even bought this.
    But bull shiting that my sim is already in 3G and keeping it in "E" sucks.

    Even after this treatment - I will say their network is good and will take a look in their 3 G pricing on April 14.

    My BSNL speed capped U/L 3G is up to July 2nd week any way.

    P.S: I spoke to a "Aircel" dealer rep at my usual phonewallah shop yesterday.
    He says Aircel rolling out Data card+ package on March 31. Iam guessing 3.6 modem with 1 to 1.5 mbps speed with FUP may be 10-15 gb @ Rs 1200??

    Vodafone launched its 3G service in kolkata, Having quite good signals also but no plans released yet..!!

    Vodafone offered free trials but it was pathetic.. Vodafone deducted main balance account for every usage of data..

    My vodaphone is now having -210 balance.
    My friends also have -150 balance(average)

    It is basically free trails..!!!
    It seems vodaphone already recovered 1% of its investment in 3G during trails..


    But it offered quite good speed .. I got 3.22 Mega-bits-persec down rate.. ie basically 290 -400 Kilobytes Per sec in IDM

    Vodafone wont be any different than others..
    speed differences are due to facts like mobile broadband is based on signals sent from the tower of whose strength can be changing from time to time..
    and when a new service comes into market, its more speedier than when it runs on full capacity...
    enjoy the bright times of 3G shine

    If you have good signal and if you are on main road (not inside colony) ,you can get up to 5000 kbps(5 mbps) d/l and 2.5 u/l.
    But average speed after the initial high was 3500 kbps d/l in chennai till 2 days back ,when I let the trial expire (Iam yet to recharge 3 G data pack. I might do rs 1250/5GB/30 days after a few days )
    You need to find where you get good signal by keeping sim in 7.2 mbps smart phone if you have and check in your place.
    But your card (3570z I think) is capable of max 3.2 mbps and u/l may be less than 512 kbps.
    So you may get between 1.5 mbps to 2.5 on average.But in that card not more than 3.
    If this is better than BSNL 3G ,then you can keep it.
    Are you on Post paid ? what plan? Introductory Rs 599/stick plan is for GPRS. 3 G trial @ 2G prices are only for a few weeks. You might get a stiff bill later .

    Default good speed, bad customer service and senseless plans

    I have been using a Vodafone 3g USB stick. While the speed is good - the customer service experience is horrendous. On their helpline 111 most of the executives have no clue about 3g and keep transferring the phones and ultimately hang up with out resolving complaints - average time on a customer call is over half an hour. Billing too is messed up.

    The speed of the device is quite good and better than say a tata photon.

    However they dont have any unlimited tariff plans the max available is 5 gb/ month in postpaid. 6 month validity postpaid plans are useless as they still apply the per month usage restriction and there is no provision for carry forward.

    Prepaid also seems similar - however as of date there is no clarity on the 6month prepaid plan in terms of monthly rests.

    Default Worst service of Vodafone 3G USB Stick

    I have purchase Vodafone 3G USB Stick 1 1/2 month before. I reside at Mira Road, Mumbai Circle. Till date I can't access 3G service. for this USB Stick i have already paid 2600/- rs. At the time of purchase Vodafone Sales person promised about 3G service activation. Please think twice to buy any service from Vodafone.

    VODAFONE : is a day light robber...!!! It seems that vodafone try to rob ppl without providing anything..!!
    Same case is for airtel n others..!!

    Ultimately I get stuck with BSNL 3g (speed max 3.6 MBPS) but quite cheap..!

    1st 3g stick and software of VMC lite is like a bullshit...
    its speed in 3g network is just ok in Mumbai...abt 1-2 mbps..
    and GPRS service is like worst in all over mumbai..cant able to open google and facebook...
    and for what reason they r demandin for such high price with its bullshit service...
    tata photon and MTS are best...

    @superfuzz

    dear friend, you dont know my pains..
    My father he has a DAPO Reliance phone ringing from last 8 years.
    My mother has this vodafone from last 7 years.
    both are paying to these two big-robbers like true followers.
    and they are like real followers, like that of Osho's or Sai baba. if i try to tell the menaces of these companies to my parents, they over-react and tell whats my problem if they are getting a monthly bill and good services. (considering the same services are available at half price in prepaid).

    the biggest argument they raise is the love for their numbers which are old. when i tell them about MNP, they regret that the services would be interrupted.



    i can leave Papa's Reliance CDMA phone for the sake of its crystal clear voice, but about Vodafone i will not. because it shows 2 bars max at our home in Nainital.. all the others are good here.. we live not too far.

    Default Totally F#@$& up

    I bought new vodafone SIM & took Rs95-2GB-30days plan through their website. After that, I top-uped SIM by Rs50. But I was not able to get 3G signals, SIM forcing to keep EDGE signal[2G] even though my blackberry supports 2G,3G,2G/3G modes. So, go through some forum's, and to activate 3G, I texted ACT 3G to 144(for prepaid only), then after 10mins, I got msg "3G is activated". I put on 3G mode,,,wow,,,Now I able put on mobile on 3G mode..gr8. Then I put SIM in my berry & connected to laptop for browsing. SPEED was totally awesome 789KiloBytes[DU Meter Soft] & 650-750KB [IDM] then I disconnect my internet to check MAIN BALANCE,,,..its 3Rs,,,what?? but I recharged it with Rs 50,..where that goes into? then I realised that m*f* voda was NOT using GPRS, thats f* 3G (n even had no plans). So I called everyones fav Customer Care, I told him, I amNOT able to use GPRS balace (i checked it calling *141*9# == 2047GB), he activated my GPRS n giving very sweet greetings. I checked my MAIN BALANCE == -92 I never ever seen this balance before,,,gr8,,,voda trick man... That CC make me, to pay again for 95 GPRS plan,.... STILL I am NOT ABLE TO access internet or even call to CC,,,bcoz -92 balance So made me to recharge forcefully Rs100(got 86)& Rs20(got 15).........................................AFTER ALL by paying totally app 300 & I cant access ANYTHING,literally,,......

    I am from sri ganganagar, rajasthan and i recently bought vodafone 3g usb stick k3570. Since 3g is not launched its running on Edge network. The speed is very very slow, and network crashes more often than not. Whats the expected speed on edge network ??, coz i am getting a mere 80-150 kbps, which is a GPRS speed on mobile phones....so just keeping my fingers crossed for 3G

    I am confused about 3G launch as i am not getting confirm answers from vodafone guys.....Are they going to launch 3G in rajasthan or not
