3G rollout by December 2010?

Earlier I had posted  about the 3G auctions in India and the winners in each circle. It was expected that 3G services would be rolled out by operators starting October 2010.

It appears that the rollout dates are delayed slightly. The government has already allocated the spectrum to the operators. Tata Docomo has announced launch a Diwali launch of its 3G services in 9 circles (Mah. & Goa, Karnataka, Gujarat, Kerala, Punjab, Haryana, MP and Chattisgarh, Rajasthan, West UP). The launch may initially be restricted to the top cities. In Mumbai, Reliance, Vodafone and Airtel have promised a rollout by December. No operator has a pan India license, so it is likely that 3G will be introduced in a phased manner across the country.

Now all we can do it wait...


  1. I think BSNL and MTNL have started 3G services. BSNL has already converted their prepaid customers to 3G without asking and at zero charge.

  2. Please share your experience of the 3G service if you are using it! Thanks for commenting :)
