3G price tariff competitions between telecom operators of India | Tata Docomo tops the race with attractive tariffs for 3G services
New tariff rivalry is going to be seen in Indian telecomÂ industry. Operators, who have tried to attract the customers by reducing the tariffs of 2G mobile services in competition with each other, are now implementing the same rule with regard to 3G services. Tata Docomo which has introduced 3G services in private telecom industry, is challenging its competitors by implementing revolutionaryÂ â€˜per secondâ€™ billing method of 2G services to 3G services also. RemainingÂ telecom operators are also going to introduce 3G services soon, there would be an interesting tariff prices competition in the market.
Tata Docomo is ahead of the race
Tata Docomo starts the rivalry of tariff prices by providing 3G voice calls as cheap as 0.66 paisa per second. According to this plan, it would cost Rs. 0.40 per minute for 3G calls while it is Rs.0.60 per minute for 2G calling. But it depends on the package chosen. Because TataÂ Docomo is offering per second plan, Bharti Airtel,Â Vodafone and other private operators would also be following per second billing.
With theseÂ attractive packages, 3G services would also be getting much popularity. BSNL is now itself offering 3G services in Andhra Pradesh while Airtel, Idea, Aircel got licenses to operate these services. According to the present tariff offered by Tata Docomo, user has to pay at least Rs. 500 monthly. In the next few months, with the commencement of services from other operators, this amount would come down. Lowering the tariffs due to competition in the market is now itself showing muchÂ impact on the income of telecom operators. For the purpose of getting 3G licenses, companies have to spend more money in bidding. In this scenario, it would be a real challenge for telecom operators while this tariff competition would be a festival for customers.
