Tata Photon Plus is available up to a high speed of 3.1 Mbps. It is important to state here that speed or connectivity quality of Photon Plus depends on number of factors. These factors include: The time of surfing such as morning or peak hours, during which capacity is divided and speed is slow or night time when there is much less usage; total number of Photon Plus users at a time. There are many Tata Photon Plus base stations covering their respective and particular areas or jurisdictions. So, the speed also depends on the number of users accessing the Net at one time; the signal also gets weakened because of obstructions between the base station and the location of the user. For example, if the user is using the Tata Photon connection at the basement of a building then the signal strength is significantly reduced; Photon Plus connectivity speed also depends on the server capacity of the websites accessed by the Photon user. The servers of other sites may be slow to respond and hence slow speed. Another factor is the location of servers accessed. The server of a site located outside India takes longer time than a server located in India. For example, www.google.co.in is accessible in less time than www.google.com; the number of simultaneous open windows or sites also affects the speed. Opening more web pages in multiple windows divides the speed and speed is lowered. If the user is downloading and uploading data at the same time, then speed gets divided and hence slowed; Photon Plus speed also gets affected by the number of hops between Tata and the end user. Hops or gateways between Tata and the user, such as VSNL and others, significantly decreases the speed of Tata Photon Plus connection. So, the capacity responds according to the speed or capacity of other hops or gateways
