TATA DoCoMo is widely known for introducing path-breaking plans in India. They completely changed the face of telecom industry in India by introducing “per second billing” which allows the customer to have complete transparency in billing. The new rollover plans allows the customers to carry forward their unused talk-time and SMS packages to the next billing cycle.
The new Rollover Plan is available in four different types – RO 500, RO 799, RO 1000 and RO 1099 with a monthly rental of Rs.500, Rs.799, Rs.1,000 and Rs.1,099 respectively.
Let me explain you how this plan works. If you purchase the RO 1099 plan, you will get 1,50,000 seconds of free local calls and 72,000 seconds of free STD calls per month. If there is any unused talktime for the current month, it will be carry forwarded to the next month. This means that you won’t lose your talktime and SMS packs since you can use them for next three months.
Anil Sardana, Managing Director, Tata Teleservices Limited says,
“Today I am proud to say that we are launching yet another industry first- The Rollover Plan- exclusively for our Tata DOCOMO Enterprise Customers. Innovation in tariff alone doesn’t give any operator a runaway success – it is understanding the nuances of customer usage patterns and integrating customer needs and value propositions into our product strategy that are key to a sustainable business model. Taking the first mover advantage, we have consolidated an aggressive proposition that offers transparent tariff along with the facility of carrying forward of unused free usage for a period of 3 months – this feature will definitely benefit and interest our enterprise customers.”
The roll over benefit will be applicable for 8 consecutive cycles with each cycle comprising of 3 months. Lets hope that, they start the same service for the retail customers as well in the near future.
Earlier we saw Reliance Communications launching Push Mail VAS to its millions of subscribers, in the competitive spirit even Tata Teleservice has launched the similar service for its subscribers. Tata Subscribers, Indicom and DoCoMo can now read their mails on low end handsets. Like RCom, even Tata Teleservice has tied up with ISeeMedia to deliver this service.
Mr. Zubin Dubash, AVP VAS, New Products Development, Tata Teleservices Limited, said, Push 4 All Mail is a revolutionary service that will change the way people communicate. Customers will have to no longer worry whether their handsets are GPRS/BREW enabled or not since Push 4 All Mail is a ubiquitous service that will provide hassle free easy to use email service on SMS. Today consumer preferences are changing dramatically and as a telecom operator it’s important to listen to consumer’s voice and offer services that make a meaningful impact both in terms of service and revenues.
We are extremely please at the commercial launch of Tata’s newly branded Push 4 All Mail SMS-based push-mail service and look forward to some very meaningful traction throughout 2010,said Anthony DeCristofaro, President and CEO, iseemedia. Tata Teleservices is the first operator in India to offer a push-mail service ubiquitously on all handsets which will revolutionize the way users receive and send their email via SMS, seamlessly from basic phone sets.
Unlike RCom which offers this service for 30 INR per month and 50p for each SMS, Tata will be offering push mail service for just 15 INR and 50p for each SMS.
