|CDMA services provider Tata Teleservices Ltd (TTSL) is taking the tariff war to a new turf with the launch of low-end handsets priced around Rs 2,000 with internet connection.|
|The company will charge around Rs 100 per month for its services, the lowest in the country for browsing the Net over mobile phones, compared with the existing tariffs of around Rs 500 per month charged by other service providers.|
|The Tata group company has entered into a tie-up with Opera Mini, a global mobile browser developer, and CDMA software major Qualcomm for the chipset.
Even though we wont expect decent broadband on demand very soon, nevertheless it will prove a good effort by Tatas to take internet access to almost every strata of society, where many people lack even the most basic telephony service. Between the spectrum allocation issues, its intresting to find what the future will hold for Indian telephone industry.
