  1. I am curious about the reason for sale and share agreement..Is this an arrangement by which a single entity does not own 10mhz thus avoiding rule violations.Because on one hand rcom sells spectrum to rjio and on the other acquires spectrum from MTS and the merged entity (rcom+mts) wants to share spectrum. Can any one enlighten me
  2. according to the above agreement The subscribers of RCom will be able to access RJio's LTE network under the reciprocal sharing and ICR agreements.
  3. this is the scenario According RCOM investor presentation if you are on 800 MHz band today and you are moving to 850 MHz band, depending on the arrangement that we have with Jio in terms of spectrum sharing and trading, you may have two scenarios in the circles; where you have more than 5 megahertz versus just 5 megahertz. So, there could be a migration -- complete migration of CDMA into LTE coming on the back of the falling prices of LTE ecosystem in case of 5 MHz circles, or CDMA could concurrently run for a while in parallel in case of more than 5 MHz spectrum. So, this will depend upon a circle to circle strategy . http://www.rcom.co.in/Rcom/aboutus/ir/pdf/RCOM-2QFY16-Earnings-Call-Transcript.pdf
  4. Hello Can any body inform as to what are the mobile internet net packs in prepaid . I plan to use mobile internet net pack for basic web usage in chennai .
  5. i am writing here after longtime...i beleive MTS can continue as told by chitshar see todays BL as well as ET. Hon SC is going to pass seperate order in respect of MTS/Sistema shaym
  6. Rcom has given a road map for CDMA during the the con call . extracts are below CDMA is RCOM’s core business having a very healthy customer base which is delivering a very healthy data revenue growth through HSD platform across 1,000 towns. We have taken a couple of initiatives which are helping us to sustain the voice part and exponentially grow the data part of CDMA. Currently there is a choice of about 70 handsets available in the market, and to which we have added 7 more handsets in the price ranging from Rs. 2,000-2,500 up to Rs. 13,000. We are also looking for a high end smartphone coming into this category. Also, we will be the first operator to launch branded CDMA tablet in the market very shortly. So the entire ecosystem of devices is being actively pursued. Thus, we are doing 2 to 3 specific initiatives at a time, growing the network and also at the same time enhancing our distribution reach and launching the attractive devices for exponentially growing the data part of CDMA. The device lead strategy, which Shamik just talked about, is coming from both proprietary devices as well as open market devices. Proprietary devices, both in terms of entry-level handset as well as high end handsets. And there is a the value strategy that we are offering. The core of our CDMA business has been built on unlimited callings. We have fairly large on-net community and the propositions will be strengthened through plans like Mera Plan. full version : http://www.rcom.co.i...RCOM_3QFY12.pdf
  7. MTS seems to have gone one step ahead and is making one of its android handsets is being made availble at flipkart.Since MTS is having plans to bring more smart phones in to its fold, we can await more offers from the e-tailers who are preparing for amazons' launch very soon in India. pl see here http://www.flipkart....89-f281891a517f i have no idea about the quality of the phone
  8. really nice !this proves that innovations can be based on the situations in india without aping USA's cdma market! OMH was another india specific solution
  9. i really wonder if the reports of these broking firms are worth looking at . just sample this The technology(CDMA) did not allow a subscriber to change the handset or the service provider
  10. Help Wanted To Buy A New Netbook

  11. http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/todays-paper/tp-info-tech/article2162559.ece Consumers can seldom voice their frustration on telecom issues and hope to get a sympathetic hearing. Tuesday was such an exception. And so, when the Minister for Communications and IT, Mr Kapil Sibal, called consumer user groups to discuss issues related to telecom services, complaints poured in. They ranged from lack of transparency in tariff plans and loading of unnecessary charges without consumers consent to pesky calls and delayed refunds on security deposits. “Operators sit on huge sums of money, which they collect as security deposit. If and when it is returned, why is it not being paid back with interest?” said Mr Ajoy Eric Lal, advisor to Consumer VOICE. Mr Lal also demanded that India should move away from the current definition of broadband (speed of 256 kbps). “The current definition gives consumers zero experience…We need to define the broadband quality with clear figures, specific parameters, and upload speeds,” he said. Telecom Users Group of India (TUGI) said there should be a single tariff plan for all pre-paid mobile consumers. “SMS should not be charged more than voice calls, that is, one paise per second. Also, all value-added services should be brought under the ambit of regulation. These should not be left up to operators, under forbearance,” said Mr Anil Prakash, President of TUGI. Other issues flagged by consumer forums included strengthening of the sectoral regulator through amendment of the TRAI Act, need for institutionalised mechanism for consultation every six months, and streamlining the complaint redressal system to make it more consumer-friendly. “How can rural consumers be expected to go online, to complain? There has to be a voice mechanism, and they should be allowed to interact in their local language,” said a representative of a consumer group. And then there were some basic problems: persistent call drops, especially in rural areas, lack of transparency in terms and conditions for pre-paid services, and unambiguous information on newly launched services among others.
  12. i believe kumaarshah/kanagadeepan are the most knowledgeable persons in this regard.although i didnt use yet,i feel reliance evdo will be good undoubtedly in chennai
  13. http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/industry-and-economy/info-tech/article2148159.ece?homepage=true In what could be early signals of an increase in mobile phone tariffs, some new telecom operators have quietly tinkered with the charges for voice calls and text messages. Tata TeleServices, which had ushered in a tariff war with its per-second billing-based GSM offering two years back, has revised the rates for all new subscribers of Tata DoCoMo in every circle it operates. According to a Credit Suisse report, Tata DoCoMo has raised local SMS tariffs by 67 per cent to Re 1 an SMS (from 60 paise earlier) for local SMS and by 25 per cent for national SMS to Rs 1.50 (from Rs 1.20). STD call tariffs will be doubled to two paise a second from the second year of subscription. Analysts feel it is just a matter of time before the other telecom operators follow suit. “Well-entrenched vendors will seize this opportunity to raise tariffs, especially when it comes to national calls. This move by Tata Tele will enable them to take tariffs to a level at which they are comfortable operating,” said Mr Rishi Maheshwari, Vice-President, Research, Enam Asset Management. While operators, including Vodafone, Bharti Airtel and Reliance Communications, did not offer comments on their pricing strategy, these companies have in the past said the tariffs are not sustainable. At one paise a second (for voice calls), base tariffs in India are the lowest in the world. A spokesperson for Tata TeleServices said the rationalisation in SMS tariffs is ‘in line with the market and applicable to all new subscribers'. “For us, ‘Pay Per Use' goes beyond any single sliver of usage and continues to be the central tent-pole of our consumer commitment… Our tariff offering, hence, will continue to be without conditions on our pay per use platform — the specific rates could change appropriately and in response to market conditions,” the spokesperson said in a written response to a Business Line questionnaire. However, officials at some of the new telecom operators feel that call rates could go down further if there are regulatory changes. “There is still room for national long-distance, international long-distance and roaming charges to go down if interconnect usage charges are rationalised… It is now up to the Government to take a call,” a senior official said.
  14. http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/todays-paper/tp-info-tech/article2151497.ece China-headquartered Huawei Technologies is planning to offer its 4G solutions to support broadband operators in India by December 2011. The company is in talks with Indian operators such asMukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) for rolling out Long-Term Evolution (4G) solutions. A 4G system provides IP-based mobile broadband solutions to laptops, computers, wireless modems, smartphones and other mobile devices. Huawei is working on LTE solutions since 2005. Mr Ying Weimen, President of GSM, UMT and LTE network at Huawei, said: “We are bullish on our entry in India which will be by December 2011. We expect full fledged roll out of LTE network by 2012.” Huawei's foray into LTE broadband solutions and 4G technologies indicate its shift toward new verticals in the fast growing telecom sector in the country. 4G dongles Meanwhile, the company is planning to introduce chipsets for 4G dongles by this year-end in India and will later move on to offer chipsets for terminals, smartphones and tablets. It plans to manufacture one lakh such 4G-enabled devices – primarily dongles – by the end of this year. Mr Weimen added that Huawei is looking forward to an increase in penetration of mobile broadband and wireless access including the demand for tablets (which require larger bandwidths) for gaining a foothold in the LTE segment. “The 3G spectrum available in India is very small and does not allow much scope for the operators to provide high speed downloads. As a result, there is bound to be an early shift to 4G networks,” he said. New Geographies Along with India, the company is also planning to enter the North America and South African markets with its LTE offerings. The company plans to compete with US-based Qualcom, in the field of wireless networking solutions. Huawei had clocked revenues of $28 billion (Rs 1,26,000 crore) in 2010. The company follows the calendar year for accounting purposes. Huawei's first commercial deployment of LTE technology outside China took place in 2009 when it was selected as a vendor by the Norwegian telecom operator TeliaSoneria and later to Vodafone Germany. http://www.dnaindia.com/money/report_when-huawei-serenaded-mukesh-ambani-in-china_1559434 When Huawei serenaded Mukesh Ambani in China Early this month, Huawei Technologies Co Ltd’s sprawling campus in Shenzhen was host to an unusual visitor from India: Mukesh Ambani. The chairman of Reliance Industries held secret confabulations with Huawei’s top brass including the reclusive founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei, as he prepares for a grand entry into the broadband space in India. That he was serenaded is a given because of the many-multimillion dollar orders for LTE (acronym for Long Term Evolution, the latest mobile communication technology) equipment that he is expected to sign on. For large telecom vendors, India has been a subdued market in the last two years. If security issues played the speed breaker initially, economic and political vagaries, brutal competition and chary bankers throttled growth last fiscal. As a consequence, Ericsson, the market leader in telecom equipment, saw its revenues in India plunge 29.4% from Rs8,749 crore in 2009-10 to Rs6,173 crore in 2010-11, while Huawei saw a decline of 23.5% from Rs7,433 crore to Rs5,688 crore, according do Voice & Data, a journal tracking the telecom sector. All that’s slated to change. By December this year, analysts expect the telecom market look up as spends on 3G rollouts commence. “The long-term story is robust. Telecom vendors such as Huawei will look at gaining market share for a price,” says Prashant Singhal, who heads the telecom practice for Ernst & Young, the auditor and consultant. In Europe, the telecom markets swung down immediately after 3G auctions, only to rebound strongly after 3 years. Some vendors are more optimistic. Dabing He, president of marketing, enterprise business group, Huawei, estimates the Indian equipment market will touch $10 billion in five years, with his company growing in tandem. Huawei will position itself as an end-to-end solutions provider and even offer terminals such as dongles and handsets compatible to 4G or LTE networks. The Chinese telecom gear maker has told marketing staff in India they will be measured for performance this year on sheer market growth and not on profitability or margins. “Indian margins are lower than elsewhere in the world,” Dabing He said. “We’ll concentrate on penetration and growth, and we’ll leave a small room in terms of pricing,” he said. That would be welcome news for Indian operators. Huawei has succeeded in snaring a few circles where Bharti Airtel operates— territories that, for over a decade, was the backyard of European vendors such as Ericsson and Nokia. While RIL is a new player in the telecom market, Huawei hopes its previous experience of working with Chinese companies will help. Ambani also has a past track record of doing business with the Chinese: RIL had contracted work to Chinese companies for setting up pipelines and also when its refineries were being built. At present, Ambani is in the midst of setting up another telecom venture ground-up through Reliance Infotel, a subsidiary of RIL. It will offer fourth-generation broadband, in tango with similar launches in the US and South Africa. For Huawei, Ericsson and Nokia, winning the equipment order from Reliance will be a major coup because RIL is known for big-bang launches. Huawei’s senior officials were guarded about the Ambani trip, but are bullish and effervescent when quizzed about the Indian market as a whole. The company has done business in India with Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd and Aircel and a few others for equipment and devices. Yang Weimin, president of LTE product line at Huawei, said India will be next only to China in the coming years for the company. “This is just the beginning for us in India,” he said. Next year is crucial for Huawei as well as for the telecom world, Weimin said, because of India, US and South Africa going live with LTE. In China, though, the story will be different. That’s because the bandwidth owned by telecom operators for third-generation is bigger, so Huawei expects China to adopt LTE slower than India. “India will be very aggressive in LTE deployment. We can see a deployment by RIL in India by 2012,” another Huawei official, who did not wish to be named, said. Huawei has invested heavily in the development of the LTE industry since 2004. “Huawei’s advanced LTE technology and SingleRAN LTE solution enables telecom companies to gradually shift to newer technologies whenever they are introduced. It will replace outdated legacy base stations, while simultaneously initiating their LTE network deployment,” said the official. Vodafone Germany and TeliaSonera in Norway have already selected Huawei as a vendor
