Tata Teleservices to launch GSM services by June-end

Tata Teleservices, the country's sixth largest mobile operator, today said it will launch its GSM services later this month with an investment of two billion dollar.

''The company will start rolling out GSM services in southern India in June under the Tata DoCoMo brand, and aims to cover almost all of India within six months,'' company Managing Director Anil Sardana told reporters here.

With 35.7 million subscribers by April-end, Tata Teleservices currently provides services on the CDMA platform in the country.

The company, which got spectrum in 18 of the country's 22 telecom circles, will have competitive tariffs, the Managing Director said.

''We are awaiting for allocations (of spectrum) in the remaining four circles, including the lucrative Delhi area,'' Mr Sardana added.

He, however, refused to comment on subscriber targets.

DoCoMo, which had completed its purchase of a 26 per cent stake in Tata Teleservices in March, will help it introduce data services such as i-mode mobile internet technology and mobile payment systems.
