MUMBAI, INDIA: Reliance Communications (RCom), India's leading CDMA and GSM operator, expects to complete the roll out of its 3G services across India by this year end, according to a top company official.


“It's been just two months since we launched 3G services across top four cities viz. Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chandigarh. Also, we have rolled out 3G services in cities and towns of Rajasthan, Haryana and also in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K), making our reach across 24,000 towns and 600 cities,” said Prashant Gokarn, Reliance Communications' head of 3G on the sidelines of a press conference here.

“The initial phase of 3G roll outs across the 13 circles will get over in next 2-3 weeks' time and by the end of 2011, our 3G services would have pan-India presence,” informed Gokarn.

Though, he didn't reveal the number of 3G users on RCom network, Gokarn added that the uptake of 3G services is very high both on mobiles and dongles which includes application downloads, mobile TV, games and other content.

RCom was the first telecom operator to launch 3G services in India during December last year.
