TATA DOCOMO IN KOLKATA & WEST BENGAL,MOBILE SERVICE BEFORE DURGA PUJATata Teleservices is all set to roll out its GSM Mobile Service in Kolkata and West Bengal telecom circle with its GSM brand ‘TATA DoCoMo’ before Durga Puja in September 2009.

The core GSM network is live in test mode in parts of Kolkata metro and West Bengal telecom circle. The helpline number of TATA DoCoMo for Kolkata is 90380-12345/90380-00121 and for West Bengal its 90460-12345.

    i m facing much probs with Tata Docomo network. when i stay in kolkata it is cool but whenever i go to other place like west Bengal circle i m getting too much probs with network. 1st of all maximum time it has change with aircel network. though i have to pay much than call rates. also i m not getting any network so many places in bengal.

  • amith May 21, 2012 3:16 pm

    I changed from airtel gsm to docomo gsm because people told Docomo is better in terms internet, and tata photon+ is fastest internet. I believed even their network must be advanced and really good. However it appears that i am foled.
    1. No network coverage when in house from one month, many many calls also dint resolve anything.
    2. My preferred language set for tata docomo care in phone is English, every time i connect, IVR is in English, however your agents are such an uneducated brutes without politeness and say kotte pari botte pari which i cant understand. if i ask them whether they can converse in English they say “bangla, hindi comfortable” no English. Then why the hell is there an option to set proffered language as English in IVR?
    3. I cant call 2nd time the same day for any reason. If i call, the IVR says, “why wait in queue for any information? please mail us at ‘listen@tatadocomo.com’” and just disconnects after few beeps.
    My friends and victims of this poor service with no network, please come let us remove Tatadocomo from business just by choosing Mobile number portability to some other networks.
    4. Finally, i speak to a supervisor who logs a complain, (NWK094898498), after few hours a guy from technical team calls and says, it is resolved, we have done our best, for the problems you have faced, i am compensating you with 20Rs, recharge. now i am back in home, i have same problem.
    I am educating as many people as possible already by posting in all the forums about these problems. Please join me in helping people get better coverage from other network providers. Don’t waste your money with these providers.

    TATA ADDS HIGHEST SUBSCRIBERS IN NOVEMBER (AGAIN!!!)
    Tata Teleservices has issued a statement on Dec 2 that it had added highest number of subscribers four times in a row in November.
    Tata Teleservices November subscriber additions are close to the previous month’s level of 3.88 million, Managing Director Anil Sardana said on Wednesday.
    Though the figures of all operators haven’t been released for November by AUSPI and COAI yet internal data shows that Tata has emerged as top grosser in November too that is fourth time in a row.

    I have not seen such an worst network in India.First of all they don’t have proper network in Kolkata.2ndly they have launched in ROB circle but taking roaming charges.Airtel to Aircel no operator in WB circle don’t take any amount of roaming incoming charges when you are in WB and have Kolkata Circle.

  • Abhi October 5, 2009 12:53 am

    @abhijit
    Kolkata CC??
    Tata Docomo hasn’t yet arrived in Kolkata..
    If you have somehow managed to get a SIM then your SIM may be blocked for this reason..lolzzzzzzzzzz

    Jokes apart,I am telling because I know.A lot of my friends have taken it and I 100% sure. There may be some insane kanoonchi retailers who demand this.If DoT hasn’t yet issue order for attested docus,why any one will demand for it?And I again say to prove my point that in mere 2 months,it has got tremendous 5 million subscribers,these 5 million are not faaltu to go to gazetted officers for attestation..So don’t come in trap of those retailers,beeter go to second(or third!!)shop..

    caution everybody.They need your papers should be attested by a gazetted officer & not self attested,otherwise they will barred your line later.

    This is not true,though very few retailers may demand it for extra assurance.You can go to other retailers who don’t demand attested documents.All friends of mine who have taken Tata Docomo have taken it without their documents being attested.Just think of it,tata docomo is heading towards 1 crore subscribers within 3-4 months of its launch,how many subcribers would have given attested documents????

  • kaushik October 4, 2009 2:47 am

    abhijit :caution everybody.They need your papers should be attested by a gazetted officer & not self attested,otherwise they will barred your line later.

    if all documents to be attested by a gazetted officer then docomo will get few connections compared to other operators because now a days finding a gazetted officer is difficult in terms of time

  • Suchisuvra Sen October 3, 2009 10:23 pm

    Good news for all of us, Tata Docomo is launching before Diwali, I got this info from their Customer Care in Kolkata.Though this guy failed to give me exact information about tariff rate in Kolkata.But whatever they do it will be in process of pay per second scheme.
    Kolkata Customer Care is active for us, you can even talk with CC representative.

  • kaushik October 3, 2009 9:55 pm

    Idea fully redy to launch .

    Tata DoCoMo ready for action

    150-Member Team To Steer Cos GSM Rollout in State, Sriram Is COO Of Bengal Operations

    Kalyan Parbat KOLKATA

    TATA DoCoMo, the GSM face of the Tata Group, has finalised the leadership team that will steer its upcoming launch of mobile services in West Bengal.
    AP Sriram, who was till recently in charge of Essar-controlled Loop Telecoms southern circles, has been roped in as chief operating officer (COO) of Tata DoCoMos Bengal operations (including Kolkata), a senior company official told ET. He will directly report to Tata DoCoMos president Deepak Gulati.
    Mr Srirams team will comprise a clutch of functional heads who will oversee the companys customer care, sales, marketing, network management , finance, supply chain management , finance an HR-cum-admin operations .
    For starters, Sonal Banerjee has been appointed DoCoMos state head of sales; Amit Bhatia as head of customer care; Col Raj Kumar, head of network management; while Joydeep Mukherjee will be the finance chief.
    Incidentally, both Col Raj Kumar and Mr Mukherjee are old Tata hands who will oversee the finance and network management functions of both GSM and CDMA operations in the Kolkata and the West Bengal circles.
    Tata DoCoMo had recently indicated it would invest nearly Rs 1,200 crore in rolling out worldclass 3Gcompatible GSM networks in Kolkata, West Bengal and Bihar.
    While Chinese equipment maker Huawei will be the principal network management partner, a key equipment supplier will be another Chinese vendor, ZTE.
    Field trials are already underway and the Tatas are likely to kick off the GSM mobile services in Kolkata under the DoCoMo brand banner later this month, hinted a company source.
    Significantly, Japans NTT DoCoMo, which forked out $2.7 billion for a 26% stake in Tata Teleservices, is one of the biggest names among international 3G service providers.
    Tata DoCoMo has put in place a near 150-member team to steer its ambitious GSM rollouts in West Bengal . This is in addition to Tata Teles existing CDMA operation here.
    While the Tata DoCoMo and the Tata Indicom teams will share a common facility in the citys Salt Lake Electronics Complex (Saltlec), they will have fully independent operations under the Tata Tele umbrella. Tata Teles GSM and CDMA teams will operate from the brand new Srijan Tech Park where the company has acquired about 1.7 lakh sq ft of prime floor space on a 90-year lease.
    Company president Deepak Gulati had recently said while Tata DoCoMo and Tata Indicom were distinct businesses of Tata Teleservices, they were operationally independent and would leverage on the companys strengths. The objective is to cut costs and reduce the time to market the Tata Teles spectrum of GSM and CDMA services.

    In yesterday’s(1st Oct)edition of Economic Times it was clearly mentioned that they are launching in Kolkata later this month.
    They have appointed AP Sriram from Loop Mobile to head Kolkata and Bengal operations.BTS is active and field trials are underway.They have invested Rs1200 crore for Bengal(including Kolkata) and Bihar/Jharkhand.
    You can see yesterdays ET to be confirmed…

  • Abhi October 1, 2009 2:05 am

    Tata Docomo has launched Juice-Up @ Rs45/- for all local calls @1p/2sec(equiv to 30p/min) in Kerala(and possibly AP).
    What do you say Kolkatans,Tata will come with same or better offer in Kolkata to counter copycat Aircel or not???
    I believe so..

    [b]TATA DOCOMO IN KOLKATA & WEST BENGAL MOBILE SERVICE AFTER DURGA PUJA[b]

  • Abhi September 30, 2009 4:26 pm

    @Somraj
    There is no need to bother about this thing.Updating website takes very less time.
    Only in case of haryana the drop down menu appeared before and in case of Punjab,CC numbers have been addedd beforehand..
    But for other circles(say MP,Mumbai,Orissa etc) it appeared only when the services were formally launched..
    So no need to worry folks,
    And one thing is for sure that Kolkata launch will be before ROB launch..

  • ishan September 30, 2009 2:58 pm

    @Somraj
    in the select location dropbox only circle names has been displayed..but don’t know why madhyapradesh and chattisgarh has been mentioned separately..kolkta & ROB are different circles.may be they want 2 make a strong network in bengal circle..but i don’t think to give a state name they r delaying the launch.some other difficulties can also play a role to delay the launch.

  • ishan September 30, 2009 2:48 pm

    Somraj :
    the most surprising thing is that days before tata docomo launched in haryana they updated their haryana cc centre in their website. but if kolkata is going to be the next very soon then why they aren’t updating anything of kol?
    i strongly believe that they will launch after the rest of bengal is covered because in their website in the select location dropbox, name of states are given. so it will be west bengal and not kolkata since kolkata is a city.

    carefully go through the select location dropbox u will find Mumbai there..and u know mumbai is not a state.its a city.

  • Somraj September 30, 2009 1:30 pm

    the only reliable current operator i am using right now is airtel. airtel is cool and good too..if they adopt the pay per second plan i feel for me there is no need of any change to tata docomo. airtel’s network is so powerful that it will take docomo years to reach that level !

  • Somraj September 29, 2009 11:50 pm

    Yaa we can’t do any thing except hope for their quick launch.Aircel is a copy cat.
    Even if it has done 1p/sec, Tata docomo is the pioneer and will outnumber Aircel

  • abhijit September 29, 2009 11:00 pm

  • Somraj September 29, 2009 8:47 pm

    @Abhi
    hope this time it comes true. but after seeing tatadocomo.com it doesn’t seem so since no news or ads of kolkata or west bengal is posted.

  • Shoeb September 29, 2009 8:20 pm

    A lot of people in Pune are complaining about their services being discontinued, where as they have provided the same documents for other operators previously without any problems.
    there is a lot of congestion in the network here this is true.. customer care guys say that that’s because its just launched.. and its a real pain to get connected to customer care many times..
    The reason behind this is only that Tata guys did not expect such a huge response for their services and were not prepared at all.

  • Abhi September 29, 2009 7:56 pm

    Tata Docomo is slated to come before Diwali.
    Today representatives from Tata Docomo came to retailers in Salt Lake,Kolkata.They had Tata Docomo’s Sim with them and they asked retailers to make calls with that sim to different numbers(for network and inter-connection testing purposes).
    The Sim will be with distributers in a few days time and to retailers by 11th Oct.
    They have already taken documents of retailers 10 days back..

  • abhijit September 29, 2009 1:32 am

    Anuj :
    Tata Docomo is offering worst service in Maharashtra & Goa circle specially in Pune which is the capital & largest city of M&G telecom circle. SIM cards are out of stock, old connection are getting discontinued (company gives the common answer that documents failed in verification), regular call drops, non connectivity/network congestion problems, unability to connect to customer care(8/10 times it fails) and knot more issues. Peoples are feeling like being cheated by Tata Docomo. Wake up Tata otherwise peoples will switch back to their old connections.

    Anuj the same disconnection news is also coming from Hyderabad also.TDCM stop my brother-in-laws OG & IC calls both.They told him that they are not accepting self attested xerox copies of papers(address & identity proof),IT MUST BE ATTESTED BY A GAZETTED OFFICER.

    Aircel shares towers in Kolkata but in a big circle like WB they not shared towers

    yeh kaisa idea hai ?

    Ok that may be correct…but I got both TTDCM RoB(405 047) & TTDCM Orissa MNC(405 041) at a same time from my mobile…is it possible that TTDCM testing both MNC at a same time in same area?(& as per my knowledge TTDCM fixed their MNC in both this orissa & RoB circle)…So how it is possible???

    Next in line are Bihar,Punjab,Rajasthan and UP(E)..
    No spectrum allocation yet for Delhi..

  • Piyush September 27, 2009 11:43 am

    Hey..
    Tata Docomo has launched mobile services in Haryana…
    They have changed STD plans a bit as “One paisa per second for STD is applicable for first 15 min of STD usage for the day and thereafter the subscriber will be charged @ 2p/sec for the day” instead of providing STD @1p/sec for 27000 sec per month..
    Though it overall implies the same…

  • ABHISHEK September 27, 2009 12:04 am

    But according to me BSNL has a pretty good network and BSNL has even started 3G services at Bharampur telecom district!!!!!!!!!!!But Aircel has got a very baad network in RoB and TATA DoCoMo has much better network coverage than Aircel.

  • Avishek September 26, 2009 11:57 pm

    BSNL & Aircel haave bad network condition in RoB…if TTDCM offers better n/w than this two telcos & atlist better coverage than Aircel then it will able to draw people’s attention….& now we are just speculate the plans,but after launch of service,all plans are in daylight & lets hope for the best plan…but one thing always keep in mind that….the day starts with good & cheap tariff but the day always ends with good network…& the ends always became the king..all well that ends well….after few days of tariff war we will soon come back to the conclusion of good n/w & good coverage….

  • Agnivo September 26, 2009 11:55 pm

  • Subhadip Biswas September 26, 2009 11:49 pm

    If Aircel and later BSNL start pay per sec tariff then what new benefit the tata docomo will provide to Kolkata?Still it is not being launched.If it starts 1p/2sec with onnet free talktime unlimited, then it can draw new customers otherwise no chance for DOCOMO.

    Forget not,that TTDCM show the way to the existing operators…they first introduced per second billing(Loop done it first but their psb plan & they himself is not present almost all India expect some circles & they had not get milage with this plan…so we may consider TTDCM as the pioneer of this plan) commertially & in pan India basis(although they r present in few circles)…now other operators are forced to do the same…so thank to TTDCM for this great effort…Although TTDCM is not present in RoB circle but I am using the per second billing plan introduced by MTS…& this plan is awesome as per my experience….so dont think to throw TTDCM from West Bengal….Welcome them & pray to God for more good offers from TTDCM & also pray that the existing operators will also forced to opt those kinds of plan in near future…All this benifits from various operators give us freedom & happiness to use our day to day tech gadget…Happy Durgapuja…Enjoy Life…Enjoy Mobile…Enjot Telecom Talk…Do New,Think New & Always expect New….

    why RGSM signals not at all improved in ROB circle for last 10 years ? IF RELIANCE is seriously interested in GSM business then they must enhance their coverage, so far their signal strength is not good and remain congested most of the time.
    TATA docomo signals are quite good in ROB circle in a short span of time

  • Somraj September 22, 2009 12:13 am

    aircel was clever in adopting and launching the paisa concept from docomo.now docomo has to search for a better deal…

    Only docomo people know what’s the real matter, I don;t think any promo offer from a company can sink the rollout of another company! Docomo can always bring out newer plans…

  • Agnivo September 21, 2009 2:00 pm

    @Suchisuvra Sen
    Yea, my gut feeling is docomo will bring something really new in Kolkata…

    Yea, RGSM (erstwhile SMART) had such rates and were unbeatable without any pack (even SMS was free). But now they have consolidated under RGSM brand, then the CEP SIM had some kind of offer (daily credit).

    I read reviews about their congested network and bad CC, but decided to try. CEP was called off by then and I took a regular connection. Total 70 bucks for SIM, promo rates of 25p peak to on-net (RGSM+RCDMA), 50p to all local, Re.1 to all STD. And 5p for off-peak to on-net local valid for 6months!! They have come up with 18 STV as well now. They offer the cheapest STV with best tariffs. I will continue using them.

    They have improved and I use it everyday to make cheap calls, but only as my backup connection. Cannot trust them for my primary connection! (sometime you use bad things for certain reasons one can’t avoid and is profitable) I use Virgin for business (semi-premium no. 9230-x0x0-y0) and airtel postpaid for personal.

  • Avishek September 21, 2009 1:58 pm

    @Suchisuvra Sen

    I dont think that TTDCM offers 25p/m to all n/w…because TTDCM now belongs to per second pulse…so they dont break their way only for kolkata…may be they offer more cheap service…1p/2ec etc.like MTS..

    @Somraj

    Yes Singur gaves very bad experience to TATA’s…but I think Ratan Tata dont mix up their other products & works with Singur case..& Yes Aircel’s copy-paste offer gives some problem to TTDCM…but I think this is not a big deal for company like TATA…they may be strengthen their network capability & penitration in whole WB including Kolkata…they did not want to make a scrabbled launch like Idea(only some towns of WB in first phase)…may be they want to launch in whole state at a same time with good networks & more no.s of BTS than Idea & Aircel…now Idea press realese declare that their launch will be at 12/10/09..so TTDCM now studing the market & may be after all market analysis they should launch within few days before Idea ofcourse….& I hope a better n/w from them(including Midnapur & Kharagpur)…

  • Suchisuvra Sen September 21, 2009 1:33 pm

    I think Aircel is established network in Kolkata Circle, so offer what Tata Docomoco have in other Circles,no usage to us.We like free plans than 1paisa/sec which Aircel already have adopted before Tata launch.Reliance GSM’s 15 paisa RGSM to RGSM,35 paisa for others and 5 paisa at night was the best plan I have seen ever.

  • Agnivo September 21, 2009 1:32 pm

    @ishan
    Of course, finally we are seeing a real tariff war.

    @Prateek
    Only thing I can call Aircel as is “southern copycat”; remember they copy bollywood movies and add some cheap rajnikanth action? LOL

    @Suchisuvra Sen
    RGSM offers on-net 0.25, but docomo 0.25 to all? Congestion, congestion, congestion!!!

    @Somraj
    Nah, those are different cup of tea, unless docomo SIm comes with a free NANO! Yea, as I told Aircel is Rajnikanth!!

  • Somraj September 21, 2009 1:23 pm

    moreover the moveout of the tata nano factory from singur has left bitterness in the minds of the tatas…so it may also be the reason…
    one thing is for sure and quite certain that idea is going to launch on 12th October.
    aircel offers are very similar to that of docomo. aircel also has launched diet sms like docomo.so no usp for the tatas.

  • Suchisuvra Sen September 21, 2009 9:47 am

    One of retailer in my locality told me that Tata is coming with good offers like all calls to any network at 25 paisa/min

  • Prateek September 21, 2009 4:33 am

    TATA Docomo main reason to postpone the launch date is ofcourse AIRCEL.
    If you would have been one of the marketing executives you would have also done the same and whenever it will launch its has to get either of two things.
    1- Better offers and unique OFFERS than its rivals
    2- Atleast Better network than AIRCEL to compete with the same offer.

  • ishan September 21, 2009 2:18 am

    aircel’s 1p/sec offer has given tata docomo ‘jor ka dhakka’.i think just because of aircel they has postponed the launch in kolkata.they r testing their signal in kolkata for the last 4 months.but still no confirmed date of launch.even idea,testing their signal for almost last 2months has declared the launch date.

    Remember in 1996 we had only one operator “command” in kolkata, with a handful of BTSs yet Rs.10/min outgoing and Rs.5/min incoming. So don’t take that way…if we could adjust in 1996, docomo is a new operator and a lot has changed, give it some time to tune up!

  • kaushik September 14, 2009 11:27 pm

    tata or virgin or docomo ke liye unlimited matlab upto certain limit like here STD less than 1p/sec is subject to maximum of 60 mins
    for indicom pay per call unlimited means 10 min pulse
    docomo STD 1p/sec means subject to maximum 27000 secs
    TATA thinks they are only smart and rest all are cow ?

    Same thing ,I dialed TTDCM Kolkata no.,their IVR system says their tariffs(1p/1s),but I am not able to connect their cc person…waited for a long time after pressing desired key but phone only rings(4 times)…but no one pick it up.I disconnect the phone because this was chargeable call & I dont want to lose more money for nothing…

  • Shoeb September 11, 2009 4:28 pm

    Tata Docomo has not yet distributed recharge vouchers in pune.. i could not top up my number for less than 50 rs.. this is very CHEEP BUSINESS by tata. first they want us to recharge with 200 rs after buying the sim then they don’t have small recharge coupons.. They dont even have a Full Talk time recharge.
    in Kolkata if Aircel is giving per paisa pr second calling then its better to go with Aircel as i have Aircel too as my primary no. and these Aircel guys are really genuine from customer care to network to tariffs everything with full talk-time recharges..

  • Joyanta September 1, 2009 12:09 pm

    Hey guys…Don’t get confused between the call rate of a CDMA service provider and a GSM service provider. The GSM call rates can’t be so cheap like CDMA ones. The reason behind this is the technology. Bcoz, the call carrying cost in CDMA much lower than the GSM. that’s why they can give call rates like 30p/min. But if you notice, u can find easily that the call quality is much better in GSM in compare to any CDMA network. The voice quality in GSM is much clear and in a running vehicles, the call drop rate for CDMA is much higher than GSM.

    So, the summary is; if you need quality…go for GSM and if u need quantity compromising the quality go for CDMA (Tata indicom, MTS etc).

    And for TATA DOCOMO, they are going to launch their service in the 1st half of september.

  • atanu August 27, 2009 3:52 pm

    tata docomo will not rocks kolkata. when i am dialing by my mts phone @.30paise/mnt. tata ofer @1paise/sec. so i tata takes .30 paise for 30sec( if i talk like a man i have to use 40 to 45 sec) so 40 paise to 45 paise. but my mts take only 30 paise for all 1 mnt. other hand tata takes 60 paise…….

    @rahul

    RAHUL you should compare APPLES to APPLES and not APPLES to ORANGES:
    Idea has been in the GSM business since 1995 (Maharashtra-Goa, Andhra Pradesh etc) however TATA DOCOMO has launched in 2009. However is you wish to compare customer base, keep in mind that TATA DOCOMO achieved 5 LAC CUSTOMERS in 55 days after launch in TAMIL NADU .. Im sure these numbers speak for themselves as to how good TTDCM is …

    >> idea is known for its coverage and it has 5 crore customers almost
    >> tata is new and has about 10 lakhs customers

    @ altaf
    I think ur a fan of idea..& idea has good coverage in Mumbai!!!..but I read some comments of idea’s bad network report in Mumbai at here…but I think that idea was launched in Mumbai so many years ago(may b 12 yrs,not sure..correct me if I am wrong)..so it is quite natural to made a good network base within this long time frame..But TTDCM was launched in Mumbai only few days ago..so it is natural that it has less coverage than idea in Mumbai..The main acid test for both Idea & TTDCM is in here(Kolkata & WB) where they both launch their network in almost same time..lets wait & watch…..

    todays is IDEA’s first launch anniversary in mumbai and iam not fan of idea and from the day of launch itself their coverage is upto the mark as they said biggest metro city launch ever check out their site. i want to share one information, IDEA blocked my connection yesterday stating reason the my documents are not proper although i bought the connection last year at the day of launch……i think their anniversary gift for me..

    Ya.You are 100% correct.Not only in mumbai very bad service report is coming from hyderabad also.call drop.wrong number hit.cross connection.sms not reaching.bad network & overall sim card out of stock there.People of hyderabad telling good ol idea is the best my baap.

    You know one thing that among all the circles(Telecom) in India Calcutta is the most backward and loss making circles for operators like Airtel,Vodafone,Relinace etc…This is because not only the subscriber base is low compared to other metro circles there are other issues like ARPU,network maintenance and over all customer satisfaction,quality of service etc…Who would be keen to invest in such a loss making circle…Even Bengal circle wich is late enmtrant for telecom growth is also ahead of calcutta circle….So this is a dead circle forever

    dada no one is making loss but i agree wilth one thing that ARPU is less

  • Avishek August 20, 2009 12:38 am

    @Joshua

    Yes coverage is the most valuable factor…if idea give us good coverage than we go for it & if TTDCM(short name of TATA DOCOMO)gives good..then we should go 4 it..Offer r for limited period but coverage is the first & finalmost criteria for good service….MTS gives good offers & it also give good coverage so it is quite popular now…& one thing coverage also depend upon area…in my area(mainly at my home, at the junction(Middle)of Midnapur & Kharagpur Town)I get good coverage of Vodafone,TATA Indicom & MTS…Airtel is not upto the mark,Relience coverage(both cdma & gsm)is bad, & Aircel has worst coverage(Networkless)here…So I am now waiting to see Idea & TTDCM COVERAGE in my area…..

  • altaf August 20, 2009 12:37 am

    it is clear from this blog that people from kolkata and west bengal writing most comments here

    Yeh u r right mate….idea will ruin itself if they fail to launch before tata in both kolkata & wb circle..I am not so much hyped of idea & its introductory offers…one thing to remember that idea was the most congested network said by tri in recent monthes…may idea will get some users with their introductory offers but I think they will not able to carry their reputation(good or bad..God knows)with dates…kaisa idea sirji???

    a network get congested when number of subcriber base is high but dont worry 3 to 4 months congestion problem will rise because IDEA is one of the best operator and if their coverage is good people will go for IDEA

    @ debopratim roy
    dada, tata gsm will launch service all over india by march 2010 just 6 months
    whereas idea takes 12 years to complete pan india launch if it launch all over india within dec 2009

    TATA docomo will complete pan india launch by the end of this year

    who will make 1st nomaskar in kolkata?

    no idea sirji for now(mean to say idea will be last), first will be docomo as docomo itself commented that they are coming before pujo….. not like IDEA no confirmation nothing from their side….wht a confuse IDEA SIRJI!

  • Joshua August 20, 2009 12:15 am

    For all users who are looking for a change i would recommend wait for Idea cellulars launch .

    Like Rahul pointed out Idea will go for great coverage and moderate offers So i have decide with Rahul’s comment i will go with Idea cellular i need a change i need better coverage .

    Thank You Rahul for the wake up call

    khub valo khabar..:) but can u give the exact launch date??

  • Avishek August 19, 2009 11:55 pm

    @Debopratim Roy

    From where u collect this information about kolkata & WB circle..???
    Kolkata metro has less mobile penitration than any other metro in our country..& this is the cause of interest of Telco’s in Kolkata circle…& mean that WB Telecom circle is in B category(By TRI)..It means it is granted as a good source of income of Telcos & it fulfilled many other good quality criteria..

    SO ur personal assumption is 100% wrong that WB CIRCLE is dead circle…pls dont post useless & baseless comments here…

  • ishan August 19, 2009 11:54 pm

    @Debopratim Roy
    debopratim all the major operators (airtel,bsnl,vodafone,aircel,reliance gsm & cdma,tata indicom,MTS) have their service in kolkata.tatadocomo & idea is ready to launch their service.1 question debopratim can u name any major operator(airtel,vodafone,bsnl etc)which r making loss in kolkata circle??may be ARPU is less,QOS is not so good but i don’t agree with ur comment that kolkata is most backward ,loss making circle.there is no basis of this comment debopratim.
