RCom rethinking on its per-second billing plan

 

RCom had resisted introducing a per-second-billing plan for its subscribers and had instead opted for the ‘Simply Reliance’ plan, which allows users to make a call anywhere across the country for 50 paise per minute. However, the carrier is now having second thoughts. Tata DoCoMo, which was the first carrier to introduce per-second-billing has recently added 3.4 million new subscribers. Other carriers like Aircel, MTS, Airtel and Idea have already announced plans similar to Tata DoCoMo. RCom has witnessed a drop of 51 percent in its net profit for the quarter ending September 2009.

The carriers will not be able to offer 3G services in two key circles of Delhi and Mumbai apart from four others – Maharashtra, Punjab, Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh. Apparently, the armed forces are yet to vacate spectrum on which CDMA carriers will offer their CDMA services.
