TATA DOCOMO should immediately start 3G in Mumbai via ICR Reliance 3G. TATA DOCOMO 2G is pathetic in Mumbai so everyone porting out from TATA DOCOMO. It will be late for TATA DOCOMO to gain Customers.

Poonam – 2G speed are still better with TATA, you should try Aircel 2G!!!. Reliance already has agreement with Aircel for 3G ICR, i had reliance 3G mumbai, pathetic speed. I have heard they might tie up with Voda for 3G ICR in mumbai (might be a rumour).

As someone who uses both Tata and Reliance in Mumbai, I disagree. Rcom 3G gives me excellent speed in northern suburbs. I have seen 12 to 15 Mbps on 3G which I don’t see in MPCG. I am waiting for Tata to launch 3G in Mumbai.

Tata should start 4G within two three months at ultra affordable prices…… In Mumbai and Maharastra……. Otherwise they should sell it to the Idea or Vodafone…… Same goes with Telenor wherever they are present

They’ll probably focus on 3G for now instead of 4G.

Aircel and Rcom fully going to merge , why would Aircel will tie With Vodafone ?

November 30, 2016 6:14 pm 6:14 PM

Tata lost 13,52,969 subscribers.. Rcom lost 9,92,901 subscribers… Mts lost 2,58,555 subscribers in October… I believe these are the real loosers to jio as mentioned in my article… small operators and mobile broadband operators will be hit hard…

December 1, 2016 10:38 pm 10:38 PM

Nope. Revenue market share of Tata and Telenor were flat. The real operators under pressure are Vodafone, rcom and idea.

very true, Jio is gaining due to it welcome offer – let see how Jio manages to maintain the customer base after the offer is finished. Rcom – personally used, is a bad operator, considering Mumbai being the lucrative circle.
