RCOM Rolls out GSM Pan India

by CXOtoday Staff    Dec 31, 2008

Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group ( R-ADAG) launched the GSM mobile telephone services recently. The mobile service will span across 11,000 towns and over 340,000 villages with a capital infusion of Rs10,000 crore.

 

This was a strategic move to prepare for the third generation services (3G). Reliance Communication s CDMA network currently spans over 20,000 towns and with its GSM mobile service it will double its coverage over the next few months - according to an official statement.

 

Anil Ambani chaiman, who launched the services from the Reliance centre said the rollout happened six months ahead of schedule, with the company having secured the frequency spectrum for the services only in January.

 

‘Our strategy has always been to serve all customers on a nationwide basis,’ Ambani said, when asked if his group proposed to bid for pan-India 3G radio spectrum or four-five cities.
