Most of us spent a considerable amount of money on expensive handsets hoping that someday some service provider would offer 3G here in India! Well, that time has come at-least for folks in Delhi! For the first time in India, 3G services are available in Delhi, courtesy MTNL.
MTNL's (Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd.) 3G network is based on the UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) technology which is one of the popular 3G technology used worldwide. The 3G network infrastructure in Delhi has been built with equipments from Motorola.
Christened as "MTNL 3G Jadoo", the services from MTNL will support new era of mobile communication in India. 3G is capable of offering advanced services such as video calls, broadband wireless data, faster online video streaming and a better gaming experience due to it fast data transfer rate which can reach up to 2Mbps.
The company plans to launch the service in Mumbai in March 2009 but I wonder when Bangalore would get it.
I think the time has come to scrap my old Imate PDAL! :-)
