january addition is slowed, down inspite of new circle addition, just 2.1 Lacs from 3.8 Lacs in december


Agnivo :To those thinking why MTS topped in WB and Kolkata, I think it has entered these circles earlier than others, and people especially from rural bengal have taken up their cheap low end handsets bundled with great tariffs… and amazed by their lifetime tariffs and good service, they have spread the word as usual.
Best of luck to MTS… I too hope MNP comes timely and I can migrate my virgin number to them (my mom uses a MTS though).

MTS came in West Bengal after Tamilnadu.
