For majority of Indian internet users who are not satisfied with the current deployment of the broadband in India there’s a good news for all, TATA in partnership with US based Telsima corporation is all ready to set up world’s largest commercial WiMax network for high speed internet access in India which Indian users have only dreamt of yet.
“We will invest 500 million dollars by 2010 for setting up Wimax network, for which we have tied-up with US-based Telsima Corporation. The company is also in talks with investors to sell a minority stake in its retail unit,” Tata Communications’ Retail Business Unit President Shankar Prasad told reporters. “Telsima would provide WiMAX infrastructure and subscriber equipment solutions to deploy the commercial WiMAX network. It is setting up 3,000 base stations, which will enable customers to access video, education, music and business services,” he added.
TATA said that the deployment of WiMax network is already underway with more than 5,000 enterprise and retail customers in 10 cities using the network already and there are plans to cover 110 cities for enterprise users and 15 cities for the retail segment by the year’s end.
Lets hope TATA WiMax network comes at affordable costs with bearable speeds.
