TT Special: 2G Map of India

Following auction of 1800MHz airwave to new and existing players the landscape of mobile operators has been changed, literally.

Also players like Aircel are scaling down operations in less profit making circles.Earlier I had made 3G and 4G/BWA maps, and readers asked for similar approach for 2G also.

2g-map-India

There is the service area details of all operators

Airtel, Vodafone, Idea, Reliance (GSM and CDMA) – Pan India

BSNL – 20 circles (except Delhi and Mumbai)

MTNL – Delhi and Mumbai

Tata Teleservices – 19 circles (except Assam, North East and Jammu Kashmir)

Telenor India – 6 circles

Videocon Mobile Services – 7 circles

MTS India – Had 22 licenses, 21 (except Rajasthan) were cancelled. did
not take part in 800 MHz spectrum auction, waiting for curative petition’s result or may go up to International courts.

Loop Mobile – Mumbai only.

    Install Internet download manager in ur PC, then you’ll be able to download any video from youtube & other video streaming sites in highly compressed 3gp format. :D

  • Adil November 28, 2012 4:25 pm

    But uninor should have licence even which
    it does not have where its license is
    canceled .if they have license then only 2g icra can be…
    Example docomo has licence in all states (except j&k and north east) but it had joined hand with aircel where it does m not have network and this 2g ICRA agreement is possible

  • Adil November 28, 2012 4:20 pm

    techfrick :
    2g icra is legal. And after merging with tata docomo , it will be a pan indian brand like Vodafone IN. So, they will bring all their customars under 1 umbrella.

    But uninor should have licence even which out does not have where its license is canceled

  • Jagannath November 28, 2012 1:26 pm

  • Adil November 28, 2012 11:09 am

  • Jagannath November 28, 2012 9:39 am

    @techfrick
    uninor is going to be PAN INDIA with Tata Network? Is it true?

  • Jagannath November 28, 2012 9:37 am

    @techfrick
    Is it really true? R u sure?

  • techfrick November 28, 2012 12:39 am

    so, uninor is going to be pan india with tata docomo. The good news is that they will continue in west bengal, kolkata, mumbai using tata docomo network.

  • Sachin Mali November 26, 2012 11:58 pm

    @SAURABH GUPTA
    Hi Saurabh, if ur data download requirement is heavy, please opt for an unlimited plan of any service provider of ur circle. Then you can connect to the internet with your mobile through GPRS by using the mobilephone as a modem.

    Rudradeep :@chinto Chinto dear,
    Aircel is not shutting down services in any circle. They are just scaling down expenses on the operations in the low-earning circles. They need pan India presence as national roaming will be withdrawn in sometime next time and Aircel can not join hands with biggies for that.
    As a part of scaling down, they are moving from retailer model to cut down costs. Online recharges will be available for sure. As 2G spectrum sharing is legal, they can easily share it with other operators.

    Yes! Rudradeep Aircel Has cut down the dealerships in Gujarat, M.P., Haryana, Rajasthan and Punjab. and the company has decided to cut off 600 jobs from this telecom circles. and Aircel has cutting off the dealer ships in these circles. and The rumours spread by the dealers in other telecom circles are unaware of this.

  • ARJUN CHANDRASHEKAR November 26, 2012 3:55 pm

    @chinto
    And for Your Kind Info, Since Aircel is an Average Player in Karnataka, They Need to grow up in terms of coverage, Quality of service and Lots more, they need to hike the tariffs. First Aircel was the costliest operator in karnataka when they roll out the towers in Karnataka. And The Foul game Played by docomo caused Aircel to make it’s footfall in India. So in Order to that Airtel and Other Operators Pressuring Aircel to Hike it’s tariff Again. In the sense Aircel Might Hike the tariff. In Addition to that they are making their recharges online. So There is no Question of shutdown of Aircel in Karnataka

  • ARJUN CHANDRASHEKAR November 26, 2012 3:49 pm

    @chinto
    Since it’s the Inception to roll out their COCOs and as well as the Implementation of New Services. Aircel is Not Giving the Sim Cards and Recharges to The Distributors and the retailers as there is heavy dispute between the retailers, distributors and the company

  • Rahul November 26, 2012 3:38 pm

    What about Aircel?? Chears Mobile ??

  • Manoj Wadhwa November 26, 2012 3:32 pm

    Why asking the distributors resignation letter. Some area retailers and CC tell port out,aircel 30th NOv last date to port out.
    already last 1 month not sale any product.please tell whats is real picture?

  • Jagannath November 26, 2012 12:44 pm

    Tata-Docomo in west bengal circle become one of the third class network. Day by day they increase there Promo packs And Gprs packs but service in nil. If u activate any GPRS pack it will be full loss of money actually. They adv there 3G service as the cheaper service, though there 2G network never see full in phones: What about 3G just think!!! Do the new???? They r like early 90s network…

  • Rudradeep November 26, 2012 12:12 pm

    To everyone who are asking why Aircel is not there,

    Aircel is a pan-India player, with some circles having scaled down operations.

    On this story I can’t see Aircel logo, though it is seen if you open the image.
    Not sure why it is happening. :(

  • Sayan Chattopadhyay November 26, 2012 11:45 am

    nice initiative RDB.
    Btw docomo once again hike the price of GPRS Packs in WB. Now only 1gb data @ 69 and 1.5gb data @ 102 though the connectivity issues are increasing day by day. And currently if you don’t have a smartphone then it will be too hard to connect to the internet.

    Oh yes… there was a small operator called AIRCEL once upon a time in India… weak coverage … weak customer care & operations as (w)hole!!

    Aircel would be expanding their service in Malaysia soon with “Daya” and Nidhi” from its mentors !
