TATA DOCOMO 3G Services Launched

TATA Teleservices has begun the big-bang advertisements to promote its 3G services. The promotions began well over a week before Diwali - to capture the festive mood and to mark an important era in the Indian telecom space. Tata Docomo is the second operator to launch 3G services in India and is the first private operator to do so. BSNL being the first. Tata Docomo 3G services will run on world's most advanced 3G Technology - HSPA+ (also known as 3.5G+) which is capable of handling speeds up to 21mbps!

After activating the 3G the users will get 100MB free data download that is valid till 11th Nov mid night. The details are officially available on TATA Docomo web site.

  • Else send a text message like- ACT3G to 53333(toll free)


Or

In some areas send LIFE to 53333

Some users have been getting irrelevant replies to the SMS while few others were guided to a link http://divein.tatadocomo.in . This link if followed, doesn’t respond as it seems like TATA DOCOMO server has been crashed down due to overwhelming response or they are not meeting customer demand. Even when users approached the customer care, executives are either totally unaware of the issue or have limited information to help solve the issue!
