Tata Teleservices Ltd. is going to launch its GSM service from July

Tata Group will venture into GSM telephone industry. Tata Teleservices Limited (TTSL), the telecommunications arm of Tata Group is going to start new GSM service. Currently, TTSL is one of the major CDMA network operators in India but limited allocation of CDMA spectrum forced the company to start GSM service. Tata Teleservices will remain committed to its CDMA network but for the future of its business, the company is foraying into the GSM sector. In 2007, TTSL and Reliance mobile applied for “dual technology licenses.” While TTSL focused on CDMA, Reliance already established its GSM network around the country.

Tata Teleservices Managing director, Anil Sardana said that the company would operate on double network for its survival. TTSL is going to launch its GSM service next month and by the end of 2009, the company will also start its MNP service. TTSL pioneered the CDMA network in India. It introduced CDMA 3G1x technology and built its first CDMA network with Motorola, Ericsson and Lucent. In early 2009, the company received license from the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) to launch its GSM service. Currently, TTSL has 12,500 towers around the country.

  1. Its very good to hear that TTSL is launching their GSM srvices in india. As most of the people were facing huge problems in using Reliance GSM service due its poor network. As TTSL is known for its superior network & voice clarity.So we are anxiously waiting for its launch.
