Uninor plans on expanding its coverage in areas of its operations

Uninor, the telecom operator that has been in news for a lot of controversies has just stated its plans of expanding its network in Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh (East), Maharashtra and Goa.

we-love-uninorThe Uninor network in UP(E) covers about 55 million people and it plans on expanding its reach to 5 million additional people in 2014 courtesy of the installation of new cell sites which we usually refer to as towers. It will be setting up about 800 new towers in addition to the current 4032. Uninor will be deploying over 1,000 towers in Gujarat circle to help it cover another 5 million and expand its current network coverage by around 30 percent in the next 5 months.

Coming to the Maharashtra circle,which is its most profitable one, it will add about a 1,000 towers here as well to expand its coverage by 25 percent and the same will help it cover a population of 7 million people additionally.

Looks like Uninor is now more focusing on quality of network and trying to capture the subscribers but can this move really help uninor among big operators what you think ?

      The 3G auction in 2010 lasted for 34 days, broadband wireless access (BWA) ended in 16 days… so its tough to predict when it will come to an end as in the exact date

    Uninor is far better than Aircel/Tata Gsm/Reliance Gsm in Maharashtra and best operator to provide lowest call rate and sms. Reliance gsm stands no where in the race when you cross pen-panvel or bhaynder and enters Maharastra circle Reliance gsm goes on searching.. searching.. till you reach some proper city. If uninor installs more tower then they might compete AVOID Group in 2G coverage in Maharashtra

    @sachin !

    hope you are new user or new data user on the uninors network .

    Actually I broght 2 sim s on the same date ,,when uninor launches in kolkata . Then was huge connectivity prob but internet speed was well as 30kbps or even more higher .

    But in next few months when peoples adopted uninor . dramatacially the raising demand (was too little) decreased their internet speed upto 90%

    Uninor was always a operator for cheaper voice calls

    like landlines.

    its really not interested in serving GPRS,EDGE or 3g.

    so my advice to u ,,, use uninor for landline type use !

    and for nowadays telco demand type ,, (includes better coverage ,,cheper internet ,,, better call rates,,, better value for money)

    use AIRCEL apart from airtel voda or idea coz d AVoId group gonna increase tariffs so much .

    In goa uninor has reduced its gprs speeds limit to a very low level of just 3-5kbps which is almost useless. And their coustomer care says you will not get more then this due to network congestion.
