Tata Teleservices launches GSM service in Chennai
New Delhi: Tata Teleservices on Wednesday became the second operator to offer both CDMA- and GSM-based mobile services after the company launched GSM operations in Chennai in partnership with Japanese telecom major NTT DoCoMo.
The service, branded as ‘TATA DOCOMO’, would complete the pan-Indian rollout by this year, TTSL said in a statement.
The company would be investing about $2 billion (about Rs9,700 crore) on GSM network rollout across the country, it added.
“TATA DOCOMO subscribers will now be able to enjoy the benefits of pay-as-you-use, for many of its value-added services, including all its voice portals, 24-hour music, cricket commentary and voice chat," Tata Teleservices managing director Anil Sardana said in the statement.
Reliance Communications was the first telecom operator to offer mobile services on both CDMA and GSM platforms.
Sardana added that the company would work on a per-second pricing model for almost everything, be it voice calls, VAS services, IVR interactions.
The company also announced free missed call alerts service to all its customers.
