Tata Photon Plus EVDO actual speed in Bangalore or Hyderabad


Right now I am with Airtel 900 unlimited broadband plan and I was wondering if I should take the new Tata Photon Plus as I heard some good things about it here in Bangalore. But I am not sure what is the actual speed it is right now giving in Bangalore. I am writing this article so that if anyone is using Tata Photon Plus in Bangalore or Hyderabad, I would like to know the actual speed and connectivity.

I have already tried the BSNL EVDO service in Bangalore and the speed as well as connectivity really sucks in JP Nagar and HSR layout area (this were the two places in Bangalore that I have stayed during the time I was using BSNL EVDO). So, I would like to hear from someone who has actually used the Tata EVDO. Please share where in Bangalore you have used it and how is the connectivity and speed out there. Hope to hear from someone soon. Cheers guys.

Update: I have written a review on the internet speed, network quality and customer service of the Tata Photon Plus. Please read the same on my tata photon plus review article. Please note that the average speed that I am getting here in JP Nagar Bangalore is about 25KB/Sec. That is about 256Kbps internet speed and that is NOT at even close to the 2Mbps speed that we see on every road-side banner space these days. Please be aware of it before buying the same. But of course the speed also depends on where you are staying. The best thing is to call a Tata Photon plus executive and ask him to give a SPEED DEMO at your house. That way you will have an idea how much average internet speed you will be getting.

    Photon plus supports internet connections with data rates up to 2 Mbps (downlink from the network) and 1.8 Mbps (uplink to the network).

    Average data rates are roughly 500 Kbps to 1 MBPS. Actual speed depends on the network conditions.

    I dont think it will be of much speed. I have also used the BSNL one and the speed is really bad. Downloads at about 3-4Kb/sec that also with disconnections in between.
