RCOM Prices 3G Broadband Similar To EVDO

This is not unexpected: Reliance Communications, which a couple of days ago, announced the launch of its 3G broadband services in Delhi, Mumbai, Chandigarh and Kerala, has priced mobile broadband on par with its EVDO Reliance Netconnect Plus service, or just marginally higher. In comparison with the prices for 3G services (below), EVDO services are priced at Rs. 650 for 1GB, Rs. 850 for 3GB, Rs. 1099 for 10 GB. EVDO doesn’t have a 21 GB plan, probably because with 20-30 kbps (inconsistent), one is hardly likely to breach that limit.



The data cards, interestingly, for the 7.2 Mbps and 21 Mbps are priced differently. Now, with 3G services now available at the price of EVDO, why would anyone opt for Reliance Netconnect Plus? Because of coverage. RCOM is in the process of expanding its coverage of EVDO services to 150 towns, and even though it has promised availability of 3G services across circles, we’re not sure if coverage within circles (or indeed within cities) will be as comprehensive as that for EVDO. So I wouldn’t through away my EVDO card yet. Hopefully, within a few months, pricing of EVDO services will come down as well.

Among its 3G services, RCOM has also launched Mobile TV, powered by Apalya. The service is priced as follows:
