Tata teleservices offers the cheapest internet access in india

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.

Initially, the service would be available on Huawei 2900i, priced at Rs 1,999 and other low-end handsets that would be rolled out by the company.
At present, internet services are also available on Samsung Explore, which is priced at Rs 5,499. “This would be cheapest internet connection over mobile phones in India, if not in the world,” added Sethi.
An unlisted company, TTSL is adding around 1 million customers per month and, at present, has over 20 million subscribers across 22 circles in the country.
Industry analysts said this would be the cheapest internet service even though firms such as Bharti Airtel, Reliance Communications and BPL Mobile provide internet over mobile phones, the lowest rates would hover around Rs 400 per month.

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.
