  • Raghu April 7, 2011 11:21 am

    @ANIRBAN
    ok. so they will be asked to pay some fine for not rolling out services on time in some circles. is that right?

  • biren April 7, 2011 9:22 am

    IDEA has no IDEA about itself , it will fail miserably . There is no eco-system built around 3G which will drive the consumtion forward .

  • Amit.G April 7, 2011 8:39 am

    Today DOT imposed a fine of 300cr on idea cellular related to idea-spice merger as this has violated norms!!

  • Abhijit April 7, 2011 7:02 am

    ANIRBAN :

    Amit.G :
    BREAKING NEWS: DOT sends termination Notice to AIRCEL,ETISALAT & MTS.

    Not termination notice.it’s only a notice for some circles where they are missed the time for service roll out.

    whether Loop & Videocon also got notice or not? If not then they should also get as they have also failed to launch their services in Maharashtra circle.

  • Mahmood Junaid April 6, 2011 9:54 pm

    1215 cities within december 2012… i think by 2012-end 3g coverage will be available mostly everywhere… if evdo operators need to stay in competition they should increase coverage soon or else large no. of data customers will move on to 3g..
