MTS India, the relatively new mobile operator in India, has launched their mobile broadband services MBlaze and MBrowse. These services are relatively cheaper than the similar services by other operators: like Tata’s Photon+, Reliance NetConnect+ and BSNL EVDO.
MTS MBlaze has two types of USB modem devices: Premium (Rs 2299) and Standard (Rs 1999). The premium device comes with a micro SD card slot. Hence, it acts as USB modem and pen drive both. MBlaze service provides up to 3.1 Mbps data speed for downloads, and 1.8 Mbps for uploads. Both devices are plug-n-play enabled, hence don’t require driver installation CD.

MTS is offering free surfing for selected websites like Wikipedia for a limited period.
MBrowse is CDMA 1x internet service by MTS. This service also has the competitive tariff plans to attract users. The MBrowse USB modem is priced at Rs 1499, which is the lowest price for any USB modem in Indian markets.
MTS has a policy to offer cheaper devices and services. Other similar services like Tata Photon and Reliance NetConnect have a tough competitor now! :)
