^^^You are talking about your experience in Bombay or Poona? You find Docomo clearer than Vodafone?

Don't know about Vodafone, but here Docomo cannot match Idea's (which has been my main number) coverage. That includes inter city in-building coverage, and coverage on outskirts. Handset battery consumption is higher with Docomo. The only area where Docomo scores is the tariff. However, I guess, the voice clarity is almost comparable.

Had been to a trip to Mahabeleshwar yesterday. We had Docomo, Idea, Aircel, Reliance GSM between us. My observations en rounte to Panchgini and Mahabeleshwar (in order of performance) -
  • Idea - as expected, overall the best coverage. Not that even they it have all areas covered, but its better than all the others.
  • Docomo - Better than I had expected considering its just over a year old. However, many areas in between the 2 hills stations were not covered. Coverage in Mahabeleshwar is especially needs improvement. However, voice clarity was good, where coverage was there at least where I used it. Data connection did let me down on several ocasions en route, in car, from Poona to Panchgini - just would not connect.
  • Aircel - Coverage seemed just next to Docomo; however the voice clarity was not as good (not too bad either). In short, it seems similar to what it is in Poona - not great but not too bad. Not tried their GPRS/EDGE. Have heard it can be damn slow.
  • RGSM - By far the worst of them all; and by a large margin. Very large areas simply not covered and voice clarity was very bad in the one call I made in Panchgini. As everyone might know, voice clarity is really bad, in fact often just unusauble, even in Poona and wherever else I have used it. Simply put, its the worst connection you can have.

So overall tho Docomo did not let me down too much, they need a lot more work if it is to match Idea's reliability and coverage. I hope and expect them to improve with time.

Default Re: Tata DOCOMO

I've never had a good experience with Docomo, they may be cheap but they always somehow manage to activate services that I haven't subscribed to. Resolving the issue online isn't difficult, but after 2-3times I got sick of constantly having to contact them every second day.

So I've never recharged Docomo since a year and stayed with Vodafone (where I've never had any issues in the past 6 years - touchwood). No matter how cheap TATA Docomo is, the network coverage hasn't been good, and the way I've always been wrongly charged will ensure Ill never go back.
