Is Your Favourite Operator Offering 3G BWA in Your CircleBy Diwali, Tata Docomo will be India’s 1st private mobile operator to start 3rd generation high speed services in 9 circles where it won licenses.

Airtel, Vodafone, Idea, Reliance, Aircel and S Tel all stated that they are also joining the bandwagon by the end of 2010 or Q1 of 2011.Currently MTNL/BSNL, the PSU duo are offering country wide 3G services and is getting momentum to add more subscribers!

So we made a simplified version of 3G India map which will help users to understand in which circle who is offering 3G service .

Uninor, Videocon and Loop did not have any 3G licenses over India.

Broadband Wireless Access Auction held just after 3G auction ended, and only Infotel (95% owned by Mukesh Ambani headed RIL) emerged as Pan India BWA operator.

Aircel, Airtel, Augere, Qualcomm and Tikona won licences for certain circles, as shown in the map below.

@Rudra : Chorom article, boss!!

@Team TT : Keep up the good work!!

[P.S. – ‘chorom’ means ‘awesome’]


I can even browse the docomo 3G network on my chennai docomo number on roaming at Cochin,Kerala.[Docomo missed 3g in chennai :-(]. I checked the speed variations at different location and is ranging between 420kbps to 890 kbps on my Samsung Omnia Pro. I think the operators will tie up each other for pan India 3G service.
