Tuesday, November 9, 2010

CHANDIGARH - Tata Docomo, the GSM arm of Tata Teleservices Limited (TTSL), Tuesday launched its 3G services in the Punjab and Haryana circles.

Tata Docomo’s 3G services are powered with technology support from its partner NTT Docomo of Japan, a global leader in these services.

“With this, TTSL has simultaneously launched its 3G services in all the nine circles — Punjab, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh-Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh (West), Karnataka, Kerala, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Maharashtra,” said Deepak Gulati, executive president, mobility business division of TTSL, while talking to reporters here.

“Our 3G rollout across all nine circles will be completed this year itself. This service will bring better voice clarity through high-definition voice, fewer call-drops and high-speed internet access,” he added.

Tata Docomo’s 3G offering starts off with the various introductory services including applications like video-SMS, video-streaming, mobile television, ultra-high-speed data transfers and route-finder.

“After nearly a decade of success in providing 3G service in Japan, we are delighted to have lent our technical and business know-how to TTSL, our strategic global partner,” said Ryuji Yamada, president and chief executive officer of NTT Docomo.

“We have picked the best telecom circles in the country from the perspective of cumulative market potential for our 3G services. We will cover 51 per cent of Indian towns with a population of over a million and 60 per cent of towns that have over half-a-million people,” he added.

A Tata Docomo spokesperson said that they have announced attractive plans for consumers.

The voice plans are competitively priced and, as an invitational offer, all purchases and recharges of 3G services done before Dec 31, 2010 will get an additional 100 MB of data free per month, for the first two months, he said.
