- Shows addition of 2.14 mn subscribers in September 2010
- Subscriber growth of over 100% in the last 12 months
Tata Teleservices Limited, India’s fastest-growing dual-technology telecom service provider, has added 2.14 million new subscribers (wireless and wireline) in the month of September 2010 to cross the 80-million-subscribers’ milestone in a short span of just over five-and-a-half years since the launch of its mobile telephony services in early 2005. The company closed the month of September with a total of 80,306,495 subscribers (wireless and wireline), as on 30 September 2010.
The crossing of the 80-million-subscribers’ mark by Tata Teleservices Limited and Tata Teleservices (Maharashtra) Limited is all the more commendable as the company has shown a subscriber growth rate of more than 100 per cent in the last 12 months. As the numbers suggest, Tata Teleservices Limited has shown an extremely aggressive and consistent growth in new subscriber additions over the last year.
“We thank and value every subscriber’s faith in us as a transparent, caring and competent telecom services company.” Mr Anil Sardana, Managing Director of Tata Teleservices Limited, said. “The achievement bears testimony to the positive recognition and acceptance of our innovative offerings by our subscribers. We are confident that we will continue to share a ceaseless bond with our subscribers, for all the hard work invested in providing world-best products and offerings. The approach that has worked for us has been to offer cutting-edge and reliable products and services, have complete transparency as far as tariffs are concerned, and to provide dependable customer service—so that the customer has a seamless and hassle-free telecom experience.”
TTL has been offering innovating and refreshingly different products and services on both the CDMA and GSM platforms—be it Tata Indicom’s segmented tariff plans, Tata DOCOMO’s One Touch Net Handset, Tata Photon with MP3 player, exclusive Value-Added Services portfolio for the CommonWealth Games (for both GSM and CDMA subscribers), and many other unique products, all of them industry-best offerings. The Company aims at offering even more enhanced, cutting-edge products and services post the launch of 3G services shortly.
“With the countdown on 3G services having begun, TTL’s superior 3G-compliant infrastructure, with an assured migration path to 4G and a no-compromise in-built security system, will enable Tata DOCOMO to reap the benefits of its network capabilities. We have an ambitious target going forward and are optimistic that we will continue to create a portfolio of compelling product and service offerings for our growing consumer base.” Mr Deepak Gulati, Executive President, Mobility Business Division, Tata Teleservices Limited, said.
