Tata Teleservices Limited , India’s fastest-growing pan-India dual-technology telecom service provider , emerged as the Number One telecom operator in the country for the fifth consecutive month in December, in terms of new subscriber additions, adding more than 3.3 million subscribers in the month. The achievement is all the more noteworthy as the nearest competitor managed to add just over 2.8 million subscribers in the same period, a gap of nearly half a million subscribers.
Tata Teleservices Limited has added 3,336,476 new subscribers in December 2009 from its CDMA and GSM operations put together. In November 2009 too, TTSL had showed a healthy growth in new additions, with 3,329,215 new subscribers being added.
Expressing his delight over the achievement, Mr. Anil Sardana , Managing Director of Tata Teleservices Limited, said: “It is extremely gratifying to emerge as the top grosser in the industry in terms of new subscriber additions, for the fifth consecutive month.

“In the recent past, we have announced some fantastic products and offers—such as ‘Buddy Net’ which allows Tata DOCOMO prepaid subscribers to create and keep in touch within their community at unbeatable tariffs. “Postpay @ your doorstep”, where in a customer can readily get access to a postpay connection, at his doorstep with expert guidance from Tata DOCOMO.
From the Tata Indicom stable, customers have the innovative ‘Pay Per Call Flexi Plan’, an offer that takes the revolutionary ‘Pay Per Call’ concept to a whole new level.
