Tikona To Launch 4G – LTE Wireless Broadband Services Soon

Fourth generation (4G) Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) spectrum winner Tikona Digital Networks (TDN) geared up to launch Long Term Evolution (LTE -TDD) based High Speed 4G Wirelss Broadband service in Gujarat, Himachal Praesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh East and UP West beginning October 2012.

This follows Airtel’s launch of 4G Broadband services – the first of its kind in India which was launched in Kolkata as we shared on TelecomTalk.

According to Mr. Prakash Bajpai, CEO,Tikona Digital Networks (TDN) “There is lot of potential in teir 2 and tier 3 cities/towns and these markets are untaped. We will rolls out commercial 4G Wireless Broadband services initially from October 2012.”

In 2010, Tikona won BWA spectrum in 5 five key circles – Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh East and UP West covering 31% population of India for over Rs. 1,058 crore.

Reliance Infotel (RIL Group) in the only pan India spectrum winner for 4G / BWA service. Other winners are Bharti Airtel (4 circles) which has already launched India’s first 4G services in Kolkata, Aircel (8 circles), Tikona Wireless (5 circles), and Qualcomm (4 Circles) and MTNL (2 circles).

With all thease announcements, all eyes are on Pan India 4G – BWA spectrum winner, Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Infotel’s broadband roll out plan. Now what do you think about 4G LTE roll out in India ? Will it be a gala success or future of 4G LTE will be just like 3G with limited access ?

    Tikona and their customer care is worst than Imagination

    How?
    I am an Existing Customer of Tikona(1105557043)
    See how they are harassing me for past 4 months. Every day after 10.30 pm I barely can be able to use the net as speed drop at 150 kabps to 80 kbps. And I am paying every month 1250/- and I need to call them every day to get my own connection and how they reply? I am giving few examples:
    1. One customer care representative refuse to take complain and told “when real problem will arise we will take complain” can you imagine I am getting 85 kbps and they are not ready take it as a complain
    2. I have registered many complains for past 4 months. See still I am standing on the same platform and they are generating the bill.
    3. This thing just going beyond the customer care today means 18-11-2012 around 1.34 ( after 17 minutes someone picked up) and the person started making some nonsense reason so when I asked him how many days you are working there? He just told me “ Kiwa ye janne ke liwe call kiwe aap itne raat ko?” see the way they speak
    AND last but not least after getting complain number and without being resolved they automatically shut it down writing the problem is solved (and without asking me) so when next day I call asking what happen this complain number they tell that has been solved so we shut it down.
    Wow! Just no word to explain in words/word
    Mr Nair great service.

    i am using tikona.
    it has best plans and also giving exact speed or even some more then the plan.

    yes, it has some network problem in night always, but due to its affordability and low ping (always <50ms) its great for me.

    @Abhay

    OH, THEY ARE USING A UNLICENCED BANDWITH, HOW CAN THEY DO IT, WHERE THE OTHERS ARE PAYING FOR IT,
    A MAN IN OUR COUNTERY CANNOT USE A TRANSMITTER WITHOUT PERMISSION OF GOVT,SO THEY ARE NOT GIVING A SECURITY THREAT FOR GOVT??? I JUST WANT TO GIVE ANSWERE FROM U?

    Well It’s Better Not To Use Tikona, Since The Management Of Tikona is Worst and Careless and They Don’t Know How To Prepare The Infra For The People

  • Ramesh April 13, 2012 12:34 am

    God damn!! am a victim of tikona ntw. You have to be damn to rich to bear these guys forgot the technical prob you gotto wait atleast 30mins once you dial cc and the worst part is it never get solved and its a never ending story. Even the billing is such a crap. Used Airtel BB, BSNL EVDO ,BSNL BB ,Reliance net connect and tat aphoton plus but havnt experienced anything like this. OMG!! these guys pulled my soul out

    Beware mates.Better stay way

    too late, should have been launched by now….
    this reminds me of how samsung and other mobile manufactures had won the tablet war against hcl, asus tablets, because these computer people failed to launch multiple models and at earliest… too late move from hcl, asus…
    similarly tikona should have launched by now with aim of mass audience… airtel and reliance will do so..hence tikona will just go down as failure…whether tariff low or high people in mass will prefer first come basis with good service back up…

    @chaitanya das
    Actually TIKONA is offering wireless broadband on 2.5 GHz unlicensed(not yet licensed by govt.) slot so all over India where as BWA is for 2.3GHz

  • chaitanya das April 12, 2012 7:13 pm

    I want to konw ????

    1.If TIKONA is not a owner for KOLKATA, How they can serve at KOLKATA.
    2.TIKONA IS EVERYWHERE , WHERE THEY ARE NOT BUYING LICENCE.

    IT IS ALSO A SCAM NOT ANY WAY OTHERS, PLS CLARIFY ANY ONE..

  • Maddy April 12, 2012 1:00 pm

    Tikona customer support is very poor and they recruited less knowledge people under Technical department because of this they may not fulfill whatever they promised

  • Saurabh Jain April 12, 2012 11:53 am

    LTE in 2.3GHz band is most suited to urban town and cities. but for rest of 80 percent india, will have to wait till 2015 or 2017 when 700Mhz spectrum band will have auctioned.

  • Pratik April 12, 2012 11:34 am

    i have more expectations from tikona.
    its promising company but their tech support needs to improve and their plans also need improvement.
