RCom starts talking about 3G, might offer download speeds of up to 21 Mbps on a HSPA+ network

31 Oct

After Tata DoCoMo, Vodafone and Airtel, it is now RCom’s turn to talk about flipping on the 3G switch. The carrier has added a section for 3G services and can be expected to make an official announcement as early as next week. The page does not talk about 3G tariffs but claims of providing up to 21 Mbps download speeds, which are consistent with an HSPA+ network. India might be one of those few countries where multiple carriers will offer HSPA+ speeds. RCom has licence to offer 3G services in 11 circles – Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Punjab, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, West Bengal, Himachal Pradesh, Bihar, Orissa, Assam, North East and Jammu & Kashmir. However, like other carriers can be expected to be finalising 3G roaming agreements to provide a seamless, Pan-India 3G experience.
