Aircel Partners Reliance Communications to Launch 3G Services in Mumbai
Mobile telecom operator Aircel has partnered with Reliance Communications to launch high-speed 3G services in the lucrative Mumbai circle.

"We are the latest GSM player to provide 3G services in Mumbai. Aircel's 3G services will offer enhanced user experience to subscribers, allowing them live streaming of various content and better access to social media," Aircel's regional business head Harish Sharma said.

The company had won 3G spectrum in 13 circles for nearly Rs. 6,500 crore, which does not include Mumbai, where Bharti Airtel, Reliance and Vodafone emerged as winners.

Under revised guidelines, operators are allowed to tie up with their peers and launch services in circles they do not have a license. Idea recently launched 3G services in a tie-up with Airtel.

In September, COAI reported that Aircel had added 0.91 million users in August to take its user base to 74.8 million, while overall, the country saw 5.44 million GSM subscribers being added, taking the total user base to 749.9 million.

August saw the maximum number of subscribers being added by Idea, with 1.72 million, while Reliance Communications was not part of the data collected by the industry body. Figures for September have not yet been published.
