Another operator to reduce 3G tariffs. This time its Vodafone. Seems like they are reducing tariffs by upto 80%. Complete news here.

Vodafone reduces 3G tariffs by upto 80%

Love to see the rates going down. I am sure that conventional ISPs like BSNL, MTNL must be sweating considering most of the users will shift to mobile internet as tariffs are only going southward. Also the fact that most mobiles nowadays can be used as wi-fi hotspots. So its a double advantage.

I fell for this. Have opted for the Rs 375 for 1.5 GB plan. Hope I don't regret this change.

Me too! When 3G watchdog on phone shows less than 200MB consumed. I've had enough of Airtel, the Vodafone 3G rates look very tempting. Just not sure of their coverage in Bangalore.

I have Vodafone 3G subscription in Bangalore and most of the time the signal reverts back to EDGE regardless of coverage area. I have to manually disable and enable 3G to latch on to the 3G signal. But again after few minutes I see it connected back to EDGE.

Me too have been using Airtel 3G for almost a year now. Give or take a few MB, there is not much difference between what I am billed and what 3G watchdog shows. Also the coverage is pretty good atleast here in Hyderabad. I have the 10Mbps, 1000bucks/month Beam fibre at home and its a pretty tough competition between 3G and beam, both of which are amazingly fast.

Vodafone seems to be at the mercy of Airtel for providing 3g services. My 3g service was to have been activated on 25th June and they kept saying technical issues. its been 3 days since my billing cycle began and I am still on EDGE. when I spoke to Vodafone a few mins ago, they say "Sir technical issues, we will activate 3g within 4 hours from now, when your bill comes you will be charged for VMC used so far and we will rectify the bill, but you will have to call us to get it rectified" Now I wonder, why did I even opt for it!

I hope people realize a vodafone to vodafone 3g speed test means nothing in the real world when using the 3g network for internet email and so on?

I would rather speedtest to UK, Singapore US as major hubs on the internet than the vodafone in network node speeds!

^^^^
A Speedtest is always done to geographically closest server or to your ISP's server. That's the default method.

Your ISP provides a certain bandwidth to it's own network backbone. In other words if I pay for a 8 Mbps broadband connection, it is to BSNL's NOC not to Sprint in the US!

This is the reason why download servers and cloud computing sites are located in different countries/continents. You always choose the server closest to you for best download speeds and response times.

Reliance has awesome service in NCR I consistently get 2mbps and sometimes late evening get 3 + Mbps. I have this on iPad 2 and I love the connection. 5gb unlimited plan. The only downside is 40kbps GPRS speed once 5 gb is consumed

I am so looking forward to 4G :P

I am not tracking 3G as of now as i mostly use my laptop on the move.

However, query for regular users, heard 3G rates are down and speed/coverage is good in pune.

So is it time to replace regular broadband (Primary internet connection) with 3G? is it cost worthy? is there any provider with "Unlimited/night" download.

Pls do share your reviews. I am using idea.
