Serial entrepreneur Sivasankaran again jumped into another new turf after telecom. Siva Group was earlier promoter of Aircel, which was later sold to Maxis. In 2008 he again tried telecom with STel partnering Batelco. In 2012 STel's 2G license was cancelled and Shiva Group closed down its telecom venture.

Cut to 2016, he launched UTOO - another taxi aggregator in the country. However unlike Ola and UBER, Sivasankaran promoted UTOO is initiated in Chennai and promised to offer luxury cabs. They also promised no surge in pricing.

RCom Admits the 4G Network is Yet to be Live

I am getting texts on my Reliance prepaid no. (CDMA to GSM/4G migrated) that 'Welcome to Reliance 4G GSM network!' But where is the fucking 4G from RCom.

4G from RCom is a LIE !! A Lie which killed CDMA and traps the loyal CDMA subscriber base of RCom to its pathetic GSM/3G network.

However in the last text they mentioned that Welcome to Reliance 4G ready GSM network.
