Tata Docomo has recently introduced its SmartLife plan which provides the users with 3G data for a price even lesser than that of 2G data packs.
The plan is priced at Rs. 246 which provides Rs. 219 worth of talk-time with lifelong validity. Users just need to recharge with Rs. 4 within 48 hours of the Rs. 246 recharge and 1Gb of 3G data will be credited to their account. The validity of talk-time is as per the core validity of the SIM, whereas the validity of 3G data is 30 days from the date of activation.
3G speeds are far superior than that of 2G. This plan should be the first choice for any normal internet user. However, its not recommended for users who download a lot.
Cost of the data plan:
The first recharge is of Rs. 246 which provides you with Rs. 219 worth of talk-time. So, you’re giving away Rs. 27 (246-219).
The next recharge is of Rs. 4 which also gives you 6 free local calling minutes. So, here the cost is Rs. 4
The total cost for the 3G pack comes out to be Rs. 31 (27+4). You’re getting equal talk-time for the rest of the amount. So, its not worth counting.
