The award has been given by one of the reputed names in the analytics industry – Nielsen! The moment I saw this, I was slightly convinced that this product should perform relatively better than most other products in the market. I planned to give this a try. Called up the Tata marketing guys, and asked for the demo – 8 days ago. Finally, I got this curvy dongle today. Super fast service!
Installed the software, fired up the program, connected! Tested multiple times in 2 locations in Chennai – city (Guindy) and suburb (Urapakkam). Just check the following screenshots.
Tata Photon+ speed in the city – tested between 3 p.m – 5 p.m
Tata Photon+ speed in the suburb – tested between 8 p.m – 10 p.m
Well, the product of the year is not even capable of touching the minimum broadband speed! For this the company expects a rental of Rs 1500 for 90 days, and for a miniscule 6GB data usage! Ain’t this in other words known as crap?
It’s just plain bad that I’m not gonna be a part of Tata Photon’s elite customers – anytime soon.
