Uninor To Scale Down Mobile Services in Four Telecom Circles

By July 24th, 2012 AT 1:44 PM

Uninor, the joint venture of Unitech and Norway telecom major Telenor today said that it will scale down GSM operations in Four circles out of the total 13 telecom circles where it is commercially active to focus resources on the remaining areas.

Uninor India management has decided to prioritise its focus on Mumbai, Maharashtra & Goa and seven other best performing circles of UP East, UP West, Bihar and Jharkhand, Kolkata, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat. This also means that the company’s operations in the four circles of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Orissa will be gradually scaled down.

The Operator said that this decision has been taken in light of the continuing uncertainty around the 2G auction policy and timing (may be High Price).

Sigve Brekke, Managing Director, Uninor said “Since launch, Uninor has remained among the top 5 GSM operators in Mumbai, Maharashtra & Goa. This is one of our most successful circles and we will continue to invest and expand operations aggressively here. “Our plan now is to enter the auctions with an even stronger presence in the nine circles including Mumbai and Maharashtra & Goa, auction rules permitting. We will focus funds, resources and all our efforts to meet even more aggressive targets in these nine circles.”

Uninor is among eight Mobile Service operators who are set to lose its 2G license by September September as per Supreme Court’s 2G scam verdict to revoke all telecoms licences granted in 2008.
