Reliance Communications To Focus On Exploding Data Market

Reliance Communications To Focus On Exploding Data MarketReliance Communications is betting big on data and would focus on wireless mobile data market during the remaining quarters of this financial year as revenues from voice calls.

“RCom is aiming at data leadership to increase its data market share from the present 20 per cent to 24 per cent,” RCom President and Chief Executive Officer (wireless business) Gurdeep Singh said.

According to Singh, there is a huge revenue opportunity from the data market. The data market is likely to grow from current Rs 7,000 crore to over Rs 35,000 crore in the next 4-5 years, he said in an analysts call.

Reliance Communications which provides both GSM and CDMA services, is now focusing on the wireless mobile data market, Singh said, adding, RCom’s network is “built for the internet”.

Reliance Communications would also look at roping in customers of Uninor across circles such as Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Orissa by launching new offerings. Uninor had announced shutting down of operations, after its licences were cancelled following the 2G spectrum scam.

The company has 4 million active 3G users with an average consumption of 240 megabyte of data per user. The company’s wireless business has posted revenue of Rs 2,451.4 crore in the June quarter, Singh said.

Frequent disconnection,slow speed and server congestion that led to dialer getting hanged are the major issue. I have used vodafone,airtel,idea but none could satisfy me. Finally i switched to Aircel.It is cheap and gives better service. Last but not the least .RCOM Customer Care is a real pain in the ass.Been trying for a week for a query but still “all the executives are busy” and they dont even reply to mails. But its really surprising,having all the necessary… Read more »
