With its own network in 9 of the largest states in India and pan-India roaming already tied up, Uninor customers will be on a national mobile network from day one.
“With Orissa, we complete the Blue Arc – the Uninor footprint that now sweeps seamlessly through North, East and Southern India covering India’s largest states. This also marks the completion of the first phase of our launch activities,” said Stein-Erik Vellan, Managing Director, Unitech Wireless. “While our launch project now shifts to the second phase, the main focus now is on gaining shares where we have launched. On that, we have already scored some significant gains.”
In Orissa itself, Uninor has achieved a launch day presence at over 13,762 points of sale ready for customers. This means a Uninor connection is available to customers right next doors. At a supermarket, a kirana shop, a chemist, a corner mobile outlet or a full service exclusive Uninor shop.
