Videocon Targeting July-2013 to Launch 4G-LTE Services

Videocon Mobile ServiceVideocon Mobile Services are looking for a within-six-month launch plans for its 4G services over 1800MHz band which the company has secured in November auction in Jharkhand & Bihar, West and East Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh.

As per the report by Telegraph India, Videocon is quite sure to roll out its 4G services by July this year. Videocon won liberalized spectrum in the recently-ended auction and can offer services over the 1800MHz band using any technology.

Videocon will use LTE-FDD technology to roll out 4G on 1800MHz band. It should be noted that globally LTE-FDD1800 is getting more importance across the globe, more than 30% of LTE roll outs are on this band. So Videocon can leverage the advantages of LTE-FDD on 1800MHz, as the ecosystem including devices are quite mature compared to other Indian companies – Airtel, Aircel, Infotel, Tikona and Augere who got BWA spectrum in 2010. Till date only Airtel launched 4G-LTE services in Kolkata, Bangalore and Pune.

Mr Arvind Bali, director and CEO, Videocon Mobile Services has said, “Following a successful spectrum allocation, we seek to provide subscribers with enhanced 4G network across the newly won circles in the second half of 2013 which will enable deliverance of best services and great value-for-money products to consumers,”

I think Indfia is still not ready for 4G. The low traction that 3G saw ought to have served as a lesson to the telcos. The issue is not related to technology at all. It all boils down to the fact the people advising the telecom companies (both outsiders and employees) are painting a very rosy picture of the market and it’s due to this that Companies paid through their nose for services that the market was just not ready (knowledge/awareness-wise) or capable of (financially).

Very much excited to test the speed of 4g and specially not from a so called incumbent operators like airtel,vodafone……..the tariff plans will decide the fate of 4g along with coverage. Let’s hope for the best

Has Videocon declared the peak speeds it is going to offer through LTE? since it is competing with other LTE operators who have 20MHz of spectrum in 2300MHz band which will purely be used for 4G LTE while Videocon has only 5MHz spectrum in 1800MHz band and most of which will be used for deploying 2G services. There is no way that Videocon LTE can match up to the competitors speeds.
