  1. I believe and think, it is huge market and usage of VOICE/SMS & DATA will need more horsepower to process them. Telecom industry in India is boom and will grow really high.

    In India, SMS marketing strategy is also key factor and company pays hefty amount to market their product by SMS. SMS is free in India.

    No wonder all big companies prefer to invest their in India.

    Its WIN WIN situation for any company who can step in.

  2. SMS is free (in India) for receiving . It is chargeable to send an SMS; ranges from a low tariff for a simple text messages to a high tariff for MMS and special SMS (like responding to a TV show query etc).

  3. I think for now it is SMS and VOice. I am pretty sure that India is going to be one of those countries that is going to skip the entire 3G thing and go straight to WiMAX/4G option. There is a lot of excitement there, and why not. It can clearly help connect the rural and non-metro areas.

  4. not to sound selfish but if att goes in india how that gonna help us in america i don’t see it helping us i see it as them just trying to get more money even if it comes from india.

  5. It’s Ulhas Yargop (the U is missing). and the company is Mahindra Telecommunications, which is a holding company with some private investment from the Mahindra family.

  6. In India, SMS marketing strategy is also key factor and company pays hefty amount to market their product by SMS. SMS is free in India.

    Right data applications.. haha.. if they could boost the speed of EDGE here at least i’d be happy.. its not like theyre going to get any piece of the 3G spectrum…
