Virgin mobile launched in the world’s fastest growing telecom market

The Sir Richard Branson-owned Virgin group is launching the Virgin Mobile brand in India in association with Tata Teleservices

India has the lowest tariffs in the world. With Virgin getting into the game, things are expected to get more competitive. For instance, subscribers on Virgin will be credited 10 paise for every one minute of an incoming call.

This amount can be used to make calls, send text messages or avail of value added services. “We will bring in 10 telecom industry firsts’ to the Indian market,” the Virgin group chief said.

Referring to the venture, Branson said, “We have been working on this for a long time. This is Virgin Mobile’s seventh launch globally and Virgin’s largest investment to date in India.” He, however, did not reveal the financial details of his tie-up with the Tatas.

    but its CDMA technology not GSM. Virgin is tying up with Tata Tele.

  3. Not GSM? That’s a huge drawback. I surely don’t want to be a Virgin after knowing that!

  4. Liju Philip says:

    @Krishna, once you see the bill, you wont be a virgin anymore πŸ˜‰

  5. Virgin Mobile should have sought a better partner than Tata Teleservices. From what I have heard, Tata’s customer service sucks.

  6. Liju Philip says:

    Looks like the Virgin-Tata deal has stuck with the telecom regulator wanting to clarify some doubts. Sigh.
