MTNL has launched it’s 3G service in Delhi, putting India officially in 3G map.
MTNL plans to offer the service free to high-end users and will start charging once the rollout is complete.
BSNL too is launching it’s 3G service in Chennai (by Jan 2009) , but private players will have to wait till Feb 9 for 3G auction.
3G’s major challenge lies in the fact that towers need to be closer to each other and hence, operators owing to their current infrastructure will charge a premium price to the early adopters.
