Tata Indicom: Internet Options

One of India's leading telecommunications operator, Tata Indicom is also known for providing internet services. Tata Indicom Internet is marketed as Tata Indicom Photon. Tata Indicom plans are compatible with its mobile phone plans; users can, therefore, easily access 3G whether they are customers of postpaid or prepaid services.

Tata Indicom Photon, or simply Tata Photon, made available through Tata Photon Plus, Tata Photon Whiz and Tata Photon Max. Amongst these three, the first two are structured similarly to 2G mobile services - which is to say that Tata Indicom plans for these two are available as both prepaid and postpaid. Tata Photon Max, on the other hand, is a fixed rate service with speeds up to 6.2 mbps, making heavy browsing and downloading a piece of cake.

Moving back, while Tata Photon Plus offers speed up to 3.1 mbps, Tata Photon Whiz offers speed up to 153.6 kbps. What makes Tata Photon Whiz a viable option then is that unlike Photon Plus, Photon Whiz also functions as a mobile phone and allows texting and internet usage at the same time. This facility may seem a bit outdated in the present context of 3G, but for those with restrained budgets and usage this might as well prove optimum. Amongst other Tata Indicom plans for internet usage is Tata Photon Plus for Mobiles, a service for accessing the internet in context of 2G compatible handsets.

Be that as it may, all of these - indeed, Tata Indicom Internet as a whole - is a fully wireless service premised through data cards. This makes Tata Indicom Photon one of the easiest ways to access the internet for all those who travel a lot and those who change addresses frequently. You can also view videos on the internet, access youtube and a lot of other entertainment-based websites, making it a ful hands-on experience.
