MTNL launches 3G services in India

Posted on: December 14, 2008

India launches its first 3G service, operated by state-owned telecom giant MTNL. MTNL will currently offer its 3G service in parts of Central Delhi, and has described it as a “soft launch.” The network will go live by the end of January. MTNL intends to initially invest $83 million rolling out 3G services in Delhi and Mumbai. The operator’s Delhi customers will not be charged for using the 3G network during this trial phase as MTNL is yet to set its 3G tariffs.
According to the local media, BSNL will conduct its own soft 3G launch by the end of the month. Private operators will have to wait longer before they can launch 3G services – licenses and spectrum have yet to be allocated, and won’t be until early next year. Bharti Airtel CEO Manoj Kohli says that the private operator will be ready to launch around six months after the spectrum allocation process.
