According to a COAI (Cellular Operators Association of India), Idea has added 1.64 million users in the month to become the second successful operator — almost a million less than Uninor.

At present, Uninor services are commercially available in the thirteen circles of UP (West), UP (East), Bihar, Orissa, Kolkata, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Mumbai, Maharashtra and Gujarat.

Other GSM operators like Airtel (0.95 mn),Vodafone (0.92 mn), BSNL (0.51) and Aircel (0.49) have also added decent numbers of users to their kitty. Only Videocon registered a negative growth among the GSM operators.

MTNL, STel, Loop, and Etisalat registered very negligible growth, showed the COAI report.

However, Airtel still has the numero uno status with 173.73 million user base in the country. Meanwhile, the report said that there are 625.41 million GSM subscribers in India now by October end.

  • Nokia Siemens Networks is in talks with Indian wireless broadband players to set up the back-end infrastructure to help them provide broadband wireless access (BWA) services in the country.
  • Five companies—Reliance Industries, Bharti Airtel, Aircel, Tikona and Qualcomm—had won BWA licences and spectrum in the auctions by the government last year. Of these, Reliance Industries and Aircel are known to be conducting vendor valuations.
  • Nokia Siemens Networks is also looking to sell devices it has designed for the TD-LTE, a version of the long-term evolution (LTE) technology, for BWA services. The devices include dongles and modems, which would be sold by Nokia Siemens Networks to operators, who would then bundle them in offers to consumers.
  • Nokia Siemens Networks, which recently acquired the devices business of Motorola, is strengthening its devices portfolio with specialised, next-generation TD-LTE devices. The company sees an opportunity in India, where companies have already spoken of their allegiance to technology, which is favouring the system to provide high-speed broadband (as high as 30 mbps) using BWA spectrum.
