Airtel vs BSNL vs Tata Docomo 3G Tariffs Comparison

on January 28, 2011 – 12:53 pm58 Comments

We decided to compare the 3G Tariffs from Airtel , BSNL and Tata Docomo in the Bangalore,  Karnataka Circle. This circle was chosen because it is the only circle maximum Operators are offering 3G as of today.

Reliance was not included because it has launched 3G in this circle.This comparison only takes into account the Prepaid tariffs and our main focus is on the Data Usage charges. We have included Video Calling charges too. We have omitted the basic cost such as the SIM procurement charges.

While we have paid lot of attention to the numbers in this comparison , feel free to let us know in case you find any mistake.

Base Data charges without any Packs( Pay as You Go )

BSNL is the most affordable with charges of 1paise per 10 Kb while Airtel charges 30p per 20 Kb.

So it works out to Rs.1 per MB on BSNL, Rs.15 per MB on Airtel and Rs.10 per MB on Tata Docomo.

Minimum Plan Charges

While both Airtel and BSNL require only basic validity and talktime , Tata Docomo requires that you choose Rs.350 plan with free talktime before subscribing to Data Packs.

Unlimited Data

BSNL offers unlimited Data at Rs.1499 per month. You can get it for Rs.700 per month with 6 months advance payment.

The maximum data you can get on Tata Docomo is 15 GB for Rs.2001.

Airtel has a Flexi Shield plan which offers 1.25 GB for Rs.675 . You are charged 1p per 100 Kb or 10 paise per MB after that. So theoretically you can get an extra 13.25 GB for Rs.1325.

So the maximum you pay is Rs.2000 for 14.5GB of data. After reaching this limit your speed is dropped to 20 Kbps.

( It’s been confirmed by Airtel that maximum charges are Rs.2000 under the Flexi Shield plan)

    I have taken Airtel prepaid EG reharge of 750 with 4 GB data on 29.10.11.  Speed is very good and i am feeling less outages compared to MTNL who charges Rs 1200 in postpaid for 1 GB data.
