Reliance Communications has silently expanded their CDMA Rev B phase II services, Pro 3 to three new metros – Mumbai, Pune & Hyderabad. Initially the service was limited to Bangalore & Chennai.
Rcom was the pioneer of CDMA technology in India, they launched Rev A based Netconnect+ – first 3rd generation mobile broadband in India. However that was during Mukesh Ambani’s leadership. Later Ambani brothers split & broke up the Reliance empire. Younger brother Anil took the charge of Rcom.
Rcom entered into GSM segment in 2006-2007 and following that their CDMA business was heavily compromised. It’s good to see that Rcom is pushing data over CDMA platform too.
