Soon after the telecom majors like Idea and Airtel announced rate cuts in their 2G charges after Vodafone took the initiative by slashing up to 80 percent rates, Tata DoCoMo also followed suit and announced a 90 percent cut in their data charges.
According to the revised rates which will be applicable from July 1, on exhaustion of the free 2G and 3G data units availed by recharging by Rs. 126 (2GB for 30 days), Rs. 149 (2.5GB for 30 days) and Rs. 249 (3GB for 60 days) and 3G data pack – Rs. 255 (2GB for 30 days), customers will be charged at 1 paise per 10 KB for additional usage instead of the earlier 10 paise per 10 KB.
Interestingly, Tata DoCoMo has made the rates applicable for even the 3G data, thus making their 3G charges even cheaper. The revised rates will however be applicable only across 19 service areas where it provides services.
