Uninor claims 1.2 million subscribers in a month

The operator is present in eight telecom circles and first launched in the first week of December 2009.

Uninor, the GSM venture between Norway’s Telenor and India’s Unitech group announced that after a month of launching operations, it has acquired 1.2 million subscribers from the eight circles where its services were available. The company had launched in the circles of Uttar Pradesh (West), Uttar Pradesh (East), Bihar, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh on December 3, 2009 while in Orissa it was launched later on December 22, 2009.
“We are building on our launch, and scaling up our network and our distribution. We will also compete for every new subscriber. In a market this competitive, it will never be easy, but we have a long term ambition and we have made a positive start,” said Stein-Erik Vellan, managing director, Uninor in a statement.
As per guidelines, the company has already submitted its monthly numbers to TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) and COAI (Cellular Operators Association of India). It being early days and less than a month since fully operational circles, the company does not expect any significant impact of these numbers on the 2009 calendar year revenues.
To tighten the ongoing tariff war, the company had launched its service with two pan-India price plans – talklonger at 29 paise for customers who make longer calls and callmore at 29 paise for those who call more often.
