    Yes. MTNL is planning commercial launch on Republic Day. Possibly through the PM. but they are very tight lipped about the plans. even an insider refused to divulge anything. just gave a cryptic smile and said "wait and watch"

    After all such hype and high aqquisation cost. Due to the presense of rival technology like Wifi, i doub't 3g would be a success

    [rant]
    WTF!
    This is wierd man, a 3G service delayed in this country because some leader is ill. this is not some road or dam building project, so a PM needs to come.

    Mahanagar Telephone Nigam (MTNL) will launch third-generation (3G) mobile services commercially from Today.


    Motorola is setting up the core network for MTNL for this launch.

    Initially, services will be launched in central Delhi, including Connaught Place, India Gate, Pragati Maidan, Delhi Gate and Minto Road. The services will later be extended to Gurgaon. BSNL is also expected to launch commercial 3G services soon.

    Today i got an ad on Hindustan times telling me that they are reducing the cost of international calls to Rs 3...they are to make one more announcemnt tomorrow ...Most proably they are waiting for the PM.

    Now we all know normal people rarely use MTNL cellphone in delhi because of the crappy service..... So as soon as 3G enters the market people will immediatly jump on to it. Mostly students living in delhi to get cheap and fast internet access.


    Students mostly have 3g enabled cellphones ...they will connect it to their pc's and internet and downloading.

    And also video calling will be free for the first few months ,...so all the college sweethearts....will be on ....... phone &*^

    Airtel and other pvt players better have some thing up their sleeve and fast.

    Well i don't think so....
    Untill and unless it becomes as cheap as gprs and the video calling comes down to as low as re 1 per min no one is gonna use it...

    See std calls on a mobile are some times as low as 10p per min on te same network.
    So getting video calling will have to wait.

    Any one got thosenew sim cards and tried it out yet ?

    Yep, i know since i am one of their *privileged* subscribers who is paying solid 770/- per month for free STD.

    But this 10p scheme is intriguing.

    I was just trying to make a point...no celebrate it


    See all i was trying to say is untill and unless they release out schemes where we have access to unlimited downloads or video call std with out the video costs i do not see much in store for MTNL

    All ready their users base has the people who do not have 3g phone and on top of that their 3g pricing is out of the roof.

    They should have bid on the 3g spectrum and saved them selfs a lot of money
