Uninor Services in 3 Circles to Continue till Jan 18, Will Notify Users Before 30 Days of Shutting Down

Telenor which currently operates in 9 circles, and won back 6 of these 9 circles in the just-ended spectrum auction has assured the subscribers that they don’t need to panic to port out from Uninor right now.

In a twitter interaction, @uninor informed that there will be a public announcement and the subscriber will receive a text message at least 30 days before any network disruption to be expected. As the court verdict Uninor can continue its services in cancelled circles till January 18, 2013. So till then you can enjoy Uninor’s unmatched value for money tariffs without any further notice.

Uninor currently operates in Bihar, Uttar Pradesh – East and West, Kolkata, West Bengal, Andra Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharastra and Mumbai. In the recent auction of 1800MHz airwave Uninor won back all circles except Kolkata, Mumbai and West Bengal. There are chances that Telenor may buy Loop Mobile, which operates in Mumbai circle.

As per the mutual agreement between Telenor and Unitech, Unitech will exit the Uninor venture, and Telenor has already partnered

with Lakshdeep Investments to start a new venture called Telewings which will eventually own Uninor’s assests.

As taking a new connection becomes more hectic and time-consuming as the process includes strict identification verfication, you will start port-out processing as soon as you get the notification from your operators (Uninor, Videocon, MTS or Tata Tele CDMA).

    If anyone ask any retailer or cust using uninor sim, almost 100% will reply, the benefits & the service provided by the company are best among all. Telenor should have an announcement to the people of W.B. to start a rally for continue uninor service. I think it will make a huge difference. I love uninor & just hoping for a miracle…

    As ninor will switch off the network in Kolkata and WB . . . DOCOMO also likely to do the same.
    Both Uninor and DOCOMO share the network and share the expense. Now if Uninor go away. DOCOMO can not survive with so much cost and very few SIM in WB and Klkata.

    Uninor,videocon,aircel,docomo etc. are giving good tarriffs only because they have less customers and do not have wide coverage…
    If they increase the coverage or if the customer base increase they will also increase tarriffs…
    For example aircel is costlier network in tamilnadu because of they have wide coverage and good customer base in that circle…
    AIRTEL is giving local mobile calls 1p/3sec (20ps/min) for 30 days @ just 39 rupees in kerala circle!! Because they have less customer base in that circle….
    If customer base of the uninor,aircel,doco,videocon increase they will also increase the tarriffs…

    Hello Dear, They are not going away from India.They can provide their BEST IN CLASS (both Tariff and Network)service in only 6 circles from 18th Jan,2013 as per SC order and followed by the 2G auction.which is in INDIA!! So,you need not take such tension!!

    INDIA may not be the USA/UK. But,it is not too bad as you tell here. Remember,what happened with STel,Etisalat-DB? They were foreign investor like TELENOR also. But,they have to leave from India as per SC order.Neither “your” politicians,nor “your” ministers could save them.

    Uninor might eventually buy Loop Mobile Mumbai. Besides they have already have a network sharing agreement in Mumbai.

    Also, Loop mobile (earlier known as BPL mobile) is the second biggest telecom operator in Mumbai after Vodafone.
