143.20 million subscribers in India accessed internet through wireless phones in March 2013. That explains why companies like Facebook and Google are working hard on growing their numbers in this part of the world.
Airtel is the first and only telecom major (as of now) to have introduced 4G LTE (long term evolution), a high speed wireless broadband service, in India.
Currently RCom is the only telecom operator in the country to offer both GSM and CDMA services and is also the largest Public Calling Office (PCO) operator in the private sector.
The company had 46.6 million mobile Internet consumers out of which 6.8 mn were on 3G, Airtel said.
The major concerns of the customers were regarding the lack of awareness of the appellate authority and the procedure for appeal. Accessibility of complaint centers was also another big concern.
According to the new corporate MNP guidelines, up to 50 corporate mobile numbers can be ported to another service provider through a letter of authorization in a single porting request.
At the end of June 2013, Vodafone had 41.2 million data customers out of which 3.7 million are on 3G.
RCom also reduced prices for 2GB and 4GB pack on 3G network to Rs 246 and Rs 492 respectively, which is around 35 to 45 per cent lower than its competitors.
Though this is the first such direct initiative by Indian Government but it has always encouraged companies and organizations which are working in the related field.
Users have been complaining about the activation/deactivation procedure of such services for some time now, and this has become a major concern for TRAI as well.
