    I have recently purchased Tata Photon Plus USB data card. It claims to have the speed upto 3.1 mbps but the speed i am getting is only 20kbps. Its just frustrating and nothing else. The customer care of Tata, no need to say they do not pick the call up untill u get frustrated. every time i make a call to customer care, i have to wait at least 10 minutes.

    Do you think a customer have such a patience to wait for 10-20 minutes just to talk to a customer care.

    Talking to a customer care executive is not less than talking to a Prime Minister or President.

    Never go for it!!!

    this is why dont go for private service providers...
    BSNL is the best and more than satisfactory.

    Try calling them during odd hours like after 10PM for example or very early in the morning and they will pick your call within a few seconds.

    My cousin in Bangalore gets excellent connectivity and speed in Photon.
    There may be something wrong with your datacard, if you can find out the address of the Tata Indicom office in Delhi (I believe you reside in Ghaziabad) go there and create a scene so they will attend to your problem.
    The private sector is worse than the Public sector in India, surprisingly !

    Pathetic Tata photon

    I have a tata photon mobile broadband in B'lore & the speed is pathetic. The download speed is .29mbps and upload is .06 mbps which is awful.

    Is there any other service provider who gives consistently better speeds? What about the new BSNL offers?

    Miserable Tata Photon+ customer service

    Hi All,

    I was very hesitant to post my issue in this forum but Tata Photon+ customer service left me no choice. Tata Photon+ customer service turns out to be having reprehensible characteristics - no commitment, poor technical competency and shamelessness to repeatedly say sorry. I was using Tata Photon Plus post paid connection from December 2009 and I made switch to Prepaid in July 2010 as my usage got limited to travel.

    I raised a connection issue on 17 Aug 2010 and a complaint was registered against it. I got the error message while connecting "PPP link control protocol was terminated" and it doesnt connect to Internet. Later I got a callback and they recommended few steps which didnt work for me. After subsequent followup calls they asked me to visit a Tata Indicom Hub but they were clueless about what should be done and raised a case from their side on 24th Aug 2010. From then on it was a grueling campaign; I was a frequent caller to Tata Indicom Photon Customer Care centre as well as visited almost all Tata Indicom centres in Cochin without any progress on this issue. The sad part which really pissed me off was they never fulfilled any of their deadlines. I remember fews names like Jagan, Azad, Nimesh, Abdul etc. who made commitments to fix it by so and so date but nothing happened. And couple of days back I figured out that I am able to connect when I change the Network Settings to "1x mode only" though it is very slow. I visited Tata customer care centre and informed the same but they still sounded clueless as ever and raised another case.

    Today 15th Sep 2010, its almost 4 weeks, every time I call its the same old story, I feel miserable for being a Tata Photon+ customer. I would like to warn anyone who is considering Tata Photon+ prepaid; Beware you are on your own!!!

    Dear Forum users, please let me know how we can deal with such services whose office danglings say "Performance Guaranteed" and displays lot of customer commitments. Like they will do a call back if you wait on call for more than few mins; for me that few mins didnt come even after 25mins of wait today. So no thing is guaranteed except their "Hello" and abject "Sorry". In the end you will feel like "Hell" and "Sorry".

    Dear Asif,

    I had a problem with Tata indicom eating up the minute I recharged, and after two months of shouting thru my throat, they resolved the issue. They gave back my eaten up bandwidth and also this returned bandwidth is valid until November. None of their recharge lasts more than a month.

    So finally I should say the issue was resolved to my satisfaction.

    It took me -
    - about a dozen telephone calls,
    - a couple of dozens of postings on the web
    - half a dozen emails to all known emails ending with ttsl.in
    - few minutes of telephone audio recording
    - few hours of converting the recorded audio into youtube postable video,
    - few hours of monitoring on the web forums for replies to my post,
    - and replying to those posts in such a way that it grabs people attention and at the same time pisses of a photon rep

    They solved my issue in just 65 days.
    I pray for you that may god inspire them to solve your issue in 5-6 days.

    All the best.

    tata photon plus asshole customer service

    Tata and Relaince are frauds, i bought Tata Photon Plus and the salesman at the Surat Bhatar Road shop assured me that i will get 3.1 mbps if not then they will replace the device and give new one. It only gives 1 mbps and is **** costly the device itself costs 2.5k non refundable, now i want to break this piece of **** device but what a waste of 2.5k it would be. The customer service guy visited our office after complaint, he was so thankful that we did not bust his balls, he says that normally wherever he goes people yell and also beat him up. He was thankful that we spoke to him civilly. Basically he is hired to go to angry customers (all photon customers) and listen to them vent their anger. Then his job is to call his superior and put the angry customer on to phone to the superior who is tucked away in safety. The superior told us, like a ******* doucebag lawyer, quite simple that they have advertised the service as "UPTO" 3.1 mbps, and that it doesn't mean we will always get 3.1 mbps. That mothefucker, the tone in which he said this made me want to rip his throat out. But that's why they send poor thin people to listen to angry customers while they sit comfortable in their cabins. ******* bastards all Tata, Ratan Tata, Reliance, Ambani, they become billionaires by cheating people like this, this one example shows how they must be cheating and circumventing logical and ethical rules. The phone leaks by radio just go to show how these fuckers bribe their way to higher profits at the cost of everyday Indians. They maintain such an air of dignity and build sky high mansions, in reality they are just a bunch of well dressed thugs who have no qualms about cheating people off their hard earned money. I hate Tata and i wish i had forgiven the bad service of BSNL when i went first to BSNL office to buy a USB internet device. Those idiots told us to come after lunch break and so we said **** this government ****, let's go buy Tata, even if more expensive at least we will be assured of good service and good internet speed. Look at teh service and look at the speed of the motherfucking tata bastards. ******* choots they are i don't have enough bad words to curse those assholes. Motherfucking Rata Tata bastard bhosdike, teri ma ki chut, bhenchod why do you cheat customers like this motherfucker, you should say it before we purchase that we will get 1mbps and not 3.1 mbps tmkc maadarchod bhosdike, you will die a bad death motehrfucker, clean up your acts you cheaters or the public will one day riot into your offices and lynch you.

    nothing solved and see their response, shameless assholes of Tata Photon +

    Without solving anything these assholes sent the below email, all they did was get some stupid exec to call and and get me to do some time timepass setting changes on the computer which resulted in no difference in the slow speed whatsoever, their device is not capable of giving speeds above 1.4 mbps yet they advertise 3.1 mbps, the truth is that they have oversubscrubed customers and it is not possible to give everyone 3.1 mbps, so it is like fitting 200 people in a train coach meant for 100 people, bloody assholes, i hate my country because nothing gets done to such cheat companies, i emailed the DoT guy and he simply pointed me to go to the DoT website, he is paid by Tata as Tata lists his email id on their Site, all chors, shameful

    Same problem tata photon speed 150 kbps

    I have recently purchased Tata Photon Plus USB data card. It claims to have the speed upto 3.1 mbps but the speed i am getting is only 20kbps. Its just frustrating and nothing else. The technical reason they gave is that my area of living is not covered under HSIA network and i wont be able to get speed more than 150 KBPS. I am paying bill for PHOTON PLUS where as getting speed of PHOTON whiz...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Can you please let me know where to approach for this problem.*

    They refuse to solve it!!!
