Uninor rolls out data services for prepaid users

Uninor's internet browsing services will be available for free trial till May 6 and after that, at a base tariff of 10 paise per 10 KB.

Uninor has announced the launch of data services based on GPRS for its prepaid subscribers across the nine states it is present in.
Uninor’s internet services will be available for free trial till May 6 and after that at a base tariff of 10 paise per 10 KB. Subscribers could also opt for myconnect 9, priced at Rs 9, valid for three days with free browsing of up to 60 MB and myconnect 90, priced at Rs 90, valid for 30 days and with 3 GB of free browsing. With both plans, usage beyond the free data limit will be charged at 10 paise per 10 KB and accessing social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn will be free.
A Uninor spokesperson told Telecom Yatra that since a majority of subscribers use prepaid connections, it has first launched data services for them. He added that data services for post paid users will be launched soon.
Uninor also has an automatic device setting server which enables automatic download of GPRS settings on a handset as soon as the SIM is inserted. The system detects the device make and model and automatically sends data settings to the phone. Uninor’s mobile portal has six icons on the homepage including those for social networking.
Uninor is a joint venture between Unitech and Norway based Telenor Group. The Telenor Group has invested a little over Rs 6135 crore through new shares in the joint venture to hold 67.25 per cent stake in the company, which holds a pan India license to offer mobile services in 22 circles. At present, Uninor’s services are available in the eight circles of UP (West), UP (East), Bihar, Orissa, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh.
