Reliance Communications (RCom) on Monday launched the 3G services starting with Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chandigarh. With the 3G rollout, the company is the first operator to offer 3G services to customers in Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata. It has rolled out 3G services in a span of around 100 days of receiving 3G spectrum in major metros.
The company will be launching the 3G services across all 13 telecom circles, where it holds 3G licences, by the end of this fiscal and is targeting a national footprint of Reliance 3G services through associations with other 3G licensees in the balance nine telecom circles during the course of next year.
“The launch of Reliance 3G is an integral part of our Vision 2015 of creating a ‘Wirefree India' built upon the ‘affordable 3G for all' platform. Personalisation of services, simplification of tariffs and a content rich portfolio on the ‘best in class' 3G wireless network will enable Reliance customers to get a much superior 3G service experience, significantly differentiated from others in the marketplace,” said company CEO (Wireless Business) Syed Safawi.
“Reliance 3G places us in a unique position with our suite of offerings covering 3G, CDMA, GSM and mobile broadband data services on the wireless platform,'' he added.
“Reliance 3G services will offer the widest bouquet of cutting edge services, including video calling, mobile TV, video streaming and applications accessed at superfast speeds ubiquitously on a variety of mobile and personal computing devices,'' said company 3G Head Prashant Gokarn.

It holds 3G licences in the telecom circles of Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Punjab, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, West Bengal, Himachal Pradesh, Bihar, North East, J&K, Orissa and Assam.
