Tata Docomo 3G Bandwidth and Speed tests :


The bandwidth and transfer speeds purely depends on the following:

  1. Distance from the tower ( Coverage/ Signal strength )
  2. Network traffic ( Depends on area you live )
  3. Mobility  ( Whether moving or Idle )
  4. Hardware used ( Some hardware isn’t  capable of reaching high speeds )
  5. Interface to your testing hardware ( USB / PCI interface )

Tata Docomo 3G bandwidth via Speedtest.net :

Though their network is capable of HSPA+ bandwidth upto 21.6 Mbps the handhelds you use will always restrict it. Devices capable of delivering upto 3.6 Mbps and 7.2 Mbps are common in market now. This is what speedtest.net test from Maharashtra and Bangalore uncovered.

  1. The Speed tests looks impressive. Just one info to the readers: One of my friends has got a BSNL 3G data card in Hyderabad. It’s not working even in the heart of the city :) It seems they don’t have installed the 3G equipments moreover even if it gets connected it’s not consistent.

  2. Speed test result from Rajkot http://twitpic.com/34fce2

  3. I drove to Modinagar & Meerut just to try 3G but it didn’t transfer even a bit of data, although connection was ok. I am very frustrated after wasting 5 hours. It sucks.

    looks like all speedtest results are fake.
    i have tata docomo 3g enabled connection in Chadigarh and using it in heart of city(Docomo customer care claims that 3G is fully functional in my area) but the download speed is not even upto 120Kbps.
    I called Docomo customer care more than 10 times for but no resolution.
    Thier Technician closed my compalin claiming that NOKIA N97 MINI do not support high speed 3G internet connectivity(Shame on him, he dont even deserve to be in technical team).
    I called back Docomo customer care again….but to resolution
    I suggest everybody to think 1000 times before using Tata Docomo 3G or use but never rely.
    My SPECIAL SUGGESTION TO HIGH BP patients……you may loose temprament due to their(DOCOMO TEAM) silly comments and dedication NOT to resolve customer problems….

    Hi ! I m from Ahmedabad, TATA DOCOMO 3G roxxx.

    In torrent downlads, minimum i m gettin 150 KBPS & maximum is 500 to 520 KBPS. If d 3G speed is slow, check that ur device supports minimum HSDPA 3.6 Mbps.

    For best results, use a device that support HSDPA 10.2 Mbps….
