Vodafone and Airtel woo Loop’s subscribers, start offering attractive benefits

By November 21st, 2014 AT 3:54 PM

With Loop Mobile set to close operations from November 29th, 2014, leading telecom companies like Vodafone and Airtel have started targeting its customers. Loop has 3 million subscribers in Mumbai. Both the telecom giants are offering free porting facilities and attractive introductory offers to attract as many subscribers.

Recently the telecom regulator had also asked Loop Mobile users to take facility at least a week before November 29, after which the Mumbai-based firm will not be able to offer telecom services. TRAI had earlier directed Loop Mobile to inform the date of closure of its services in Mumbai to all subscribers either in writing or by sending an SMS or email.

Both the companies have set up their stall at Mohammed Ali Road in South Mumbai to assist Loop’s customers with number portability. Interestingly, other operators in the circle are also looking at poaching Loop Mobile’s users by offering “competitive” tariff plans.

According to our source, call centres of both the companies have also been actively contacting Loop users, offering attractive deals on telephone and internet services.

A few days ago, Airtel had cancelled its plan to purchase business and assets of Mumbai based small operator Loop Mobile for about Rs 700 crore. It has been reported that the merger deal between Airtel and Loop was hampered by Department of Telecom (DoT). Loop Mobile is owned by Dubai based IP Khaitan and family.
