Airtel, Vodafone and Idea - 3G Map of India (2015)

In the recently ended auction, only Airtel, Vodafone and Idea (the so-called incumbents or infamous A-Vo-Id group) have spent money to grab more 3G spectrum. Well the 3G spectrum term is wrong, it's 2100MHz band, generally to be used for 3G/UMTS/WCDMA/HSPA/HSPA+ services. 

Aircel, Reliance Communications or Tata Teleservices/Tata Docomo did not acquire any new pie for 3G. Even Reliance Jio skipped 3G spectrum.

Tata Tele to Axe Down Virgin Mobile Brand

India's Tata Teleservices, a subsidiary of Indian of Tata docomo who offer GSM & CDMA voice & data services under primary brand name of Tata Docomo, with partnership from Japan's NTT Docomo is going to kill unnecessary sub-brand - Virgin Mobile.

Today I received a text message from TD-DOCOMO which says: Virgin Mobile is now Tata Docomo.
