Will the mobile Internet speed increase now?

Recently TRAI asked all the telecom service provider of India to ensure some points related to their Internet speed. Now telecom companies will have to provide the details of the minimum speed which users will receive after recharging with a Data pack. Not only this the companies will have to make sure that they are delivering that minimum speed for at-least 80% of the time. A major question after this decision comes to mind, Will the Mobile Internet speed increase now?

This step of TRAI is welcomed here. Till now the companies were playing fair tricks with the Indian customers. Companies like Tata Docomo were saying that they deliver the internet speed of 21 Mbps. While some were saying they deliver 14.2 Mbps and all were at least promising the speed of 7.2 Mbps. This was the scenario for both Mobile Internet and Data Card internet. I bet no one ever got the speed of 21 Mbps on their mobile or Data card in India (except 4G which is just used by a few thousand in India).

MTS which is one of the leading telecom provider in Data card market promise the speed of 9.2 Mbps with their data card. I tested myself and got 10% of the actual speed, when made a complaint to them they said you are getting the speed of 1 Mbps and that’s okay. So what a common man do now? Sit back and throw out your frustration somewhere else.

Though TRAI made a great move, now companies will set a minimum speed and will give it for 80% of the time but who will track that 80% uptime or that 20% downtime?  Moreover it  would be great if TRAI would have also made any comment on the minimum speed limit like they did for wireline broadband a few days back (TRAI made 512 Kbps as the minimum speed for Wireline Broadband).

And talking about the Downtime, according to my experience BSNL is the ISP with the highest time of downtime with their mobile Internet. They are down for 80% of the time. They also have call drops problem over their 3G network.

Moreover companies can still play fair tricks. 70% of us do not know the difference between kBps and kbps or the difference between MBps and Mbps. Companies take it as a plus point the always show their speed in Mbps and kbps.  Let me tell you the difference, the Capital ‘B’ stands for Byte and the small ‘b’ stands for bit. There are 8 bits in one byte (1 Byte = 8 bits), which mean a speed of 8 Mbps is actually a speed of 1 MBps. Lets get more clear,  A song is usually of 5 MB (5 MegaByte) which we can download with 20-25 kBps speed of a 2G connection in 3-4 minutes. That 25 kBps speed actually mean 200 kbps for the companies. In the same way the 7.2 Mbps speed is actually less than 1 MBps.

Users need to be aware on such fair tricks. TRAI may take more steps for better internet but until consumer get aware, companies will keep playing such more tricks and cheat you.

Will Airtel, Idea and Vodafone be able to continue 3G ICR ?

The 3G ICRA of Airtel, Idea and Vodafone is again in limelight. DoT is challenging that this practice is illegal and all these 3 companies should stop it right now. It was 2011 when DoT first placed ban on this 3G ICR practice of these operator but all the 3 private telecom companies challenged DoT in-front of TDSAT and after 3 years TDSAT lifted the ban and allowed 3G ICR.

Now DoT is going through all legal process and planning to put ban again over such practice. According to DoT it was restricted practice in telecom technology under old licence regime. Though this process of 3G spectrum sharing is allowed under new Unified Licence (UL). The UL holders are permitted to do such practice but Airtel, Vodafone and Idea won their 3G permits in 2010 under the Unified Access Service licence which don’t allow them to do such sharing of their spectrum.

“We have sought legal opinion on TDSAT judgement. Law officers have been appointed recently so we should get their views shortly. Our view has not changed, but further action will depend on legal opinion,” a DoT official said.

Recently Reliance also started Using 3G ICR service with a 3G ICR agreement with Aircel. They extended their service to 18 circles which were previously just in 13 circles. Thogh just in 13 circles and all total in 333 cities, still Reliance was the leading 3G telecom according to the number of customers.

On 29th April when ban was lifted from 3G ICR all the 3 leading telecos started process to resume their service and introduce their service at every possible place. This was then became a challenge for Reliance to be on top in 3G customer base. Soon or later because of these moves reliance also expanded their service.

But the upcoming thunder seems to be for Airtel, Idea  and Vodafone only as both Aircel and Reliance was nowhere mentioned by DoT in this practice. May be Reliance and Aircel are having the Unified Licence and they are allowed to do such practice.

Well still there going to be a long legal process over this action but if the DoT win and put ban over the 3G service of Airtel, Idea and Vodafone then it will be surely a big loss to all the three and their customer base will get affected.

Here is an image of excel sheet which contains that which operator is using their Own licence for 3G and which on is using 3G ICR.

New Delhi Wi-Fi zone plan is ready to start now

NDMC or New Delhi Municipal council is now all set to launch New Delhi Wi-Fi zone plan. This plan was proposed a long ago and in budget presentation this year Jalaj Srivastava, NDMC chairperson stated that they will not only start the project soon but by the end on the year they will declare the Delhi as India’s first Wi-Fi enabled city.

Vodafone India is appointed by NDMC to set up Wi-Fi services in whole city is phased manner. In the first phase Khan Market will be provided this facility after that Connaught place and other will be served.

    According to a Financial Express report, when asked on the development, NDMC Project Director OP Mishra said, “We have roped in Vodafone India for the Wi-Fi services and they have already started working on the project”. He added the Wi-Fi facilities will be available in Khan market within next 15 days.

NDMC said that the whole project is PPP based and they will not handle it to any private company to look after. NDMC will be the sole care taker of the project. Earlier in Dec, 2013 this project was silently started and given a chance with launch in some areas. Below given is the screenshot of Advertisement given by NDMC on 24/12/2013.

NDMC New delhi Wi-Fi zone plan

Though NDMC is calming that New delhi will be first Wi-Fi zone of India but it is to be noted that Gujarat government did this same work in Ahmedabad in Feb 2014 end.  That project was carried out with the help of  Reliance Jio and at present actively giving services. To see details of that project click here.

No one is yet ready to speak on the speed of the Wi-Fi which will be provided by NDMC but PlanDekho exclusively got a report which shows that speed will be near about 5 Mbps. We have enclosed the image which have special condition placed by NDMC.

NDMC New delhi Wi-Fi zone plan speed Condition

Even though speed of 5 Mbps is not slow but as compared to Wi-Fi services of Ahmedabad it is very slow. AMC’s Wi-Fi is giving speed of 40 Mbps. And also AMC (Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation) is providing free access to that Wi-Fi service for 90 days. On the other hand NDMC will provide free access to its users for first 15 minutes.

World Consumer Rights Day special on Telecom by Team PlanDekho

15 March 2014.

Hello Readers,

Happy World Consumer Rights Day to you.

India is second largest country in world in terms of Population, One of the leading economy and a developing country. Trade and Industrialization shown a massive growth in last decade. For those who don’t know, India is second largest country in terms of telecom user population. Things here changed like never before in last decade. In the same last 10 Years Telecom Industry grown magnificently in the country just like the rest of Globe. Various telecom companies emerged out with hope to serve millions of Customers in India, some are doing so while rest are lost somewhere in the population of 125 cr.

Telecom is way of communication to long distance with technological means. But today our post will be limited to mobile telecom services of India. Altogether there are 12 fully active mobile service provider and many Boradband ISPs across India. There are more than 867 Million active customer of Wireless telecom service in India. Bharti Airtel is the leading telecom company with customer base of more than 188 Million.

Airtel is though noted as best customer satisfaction providing company but list of complains raised be Airtel customer is also more than 1000 in a single day. Condition is similar with all the telecom companies in India including the only state owned telecom company BSNL. Below here we will discuss the problems of Telecom Consumers and the way to get their solutions from the telecom companies.

Major and Minor Problems to customers of all telecom companies in India

Wrong Balance Deductions

One of the major problem discussed by customers of all the mobile companies in India. Wrong balance deductions are done in many forms like by cutting extra charge of your call. Sometimes customer complains the deductions of their main balance or Data without even use of the Internet.

Unwanted VAS activation

This problem is faced by almost all the customers. Telecom companies activate services and offers on customer mobile number without any request by the customer. Mainly these services are of no use like SMS alerts of Sport news, health tips etc. Condition is even worse for the customers when the number is switched off and the balance is deducted from the same.

Wrong Recharge Amount

This field is improved much but still cursed a lot since it wipes away a big amount. Many times companies change the recharge tariffs without any prior notice to the customers and when the customer recharge with previous amount he gets nothing and loose the money also.

With clever tricks

Companies play many clever tricks. many times they fool customer and the customer is not even aware of it. One of the technique is STV activation through SMS or USSD. A STV amount displayed by company always include the VATs over it. When we made a top-Up we are charged the VAT also. But with the Top-up amount when we activate an STV we are again asked to pay amount with VAT. Hence custome have to pay tax Twice. But company pay it only once to government.  BSNL customers are lucky as they are not fooled like this.

There are many more tricks through which a customer get financial loss and hence lead ti mental and physical loss. Below are the few tricks which one should take if cheated any how.

Solutions one can look upon

File a compliant 

All the companies are giving toll free numbers to register a complaint. Ask customer care to solve the issue by explaining it the complete issue polity. If possible record the call.

In most of the cases your issue get solved, If not proceed to next step.

Awake them on Twitter and Facebook

If your issue in not solved or you want other customer to know them your issue, post or tweet your issue to the company’s FB or Twitter handle. Your voice will be surely listened.

Still in Problem? Proceed to further step.

Take your issue to nearest Customer outlet

If your issue is not solved go to the nearest customer outlet of your telecom provider and tell them to solve the issue or you will take a legal action.

Not satisfied yet!?! Dive in to next step.

Knock the door of Consumer Redressal Commission

Indian constitution is respectable. Constitution provide rights to customer to legally fight against frauds and unfair practices. Visit nearest Consumer court and file your complaint with all your docs. and evidences. This process is really easy and good. You will get proper justice.

Not only India, the problem of cheats with consumer is existing every where. This is the reason why theme of this World Consumer Rights Day is “Fix our Phone” or “Fair Mobile Service” . We have to shout loud to stop such evil practices otherwise no company gonna improve.
