Uninor to further increase investments in 9 best performing circles

Uninor has today announced that the company is planning to further increase its investments in Mumbai, Maharashtra & Goa and 7 other best performing circles.


This move comes after the management of the company has decided to make the 9 circles which include Mumbai, Maharashtra & Goa, UP (East), UP (West), Bihar & Jharkhand, Kolkata, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat their priority as they are the top performers.

With this the company will significantly expand its distribution and number of shops selling Uninor products. Network coverage across the region will be further strengthened through additional sites.
On the other hand, this also means that the company’s operations in the four circles of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Orissa will be gradually scaled down. This decision has been taken in light of the continuing uncertainty around the auction policy and timing.
Sigve Brekke, Managing Director, Uninor said, “Since launch, Uninor has remained among the top 5 GSM operators in Mumbai, Maharashtra & Goa. This is one of our most successful circles and we will continue to invest and expand operations aggressively here. Our plan now is to enter the auctions with an even stronger presence in the nine circles including Mumbai and Maharashtra & Goa, auction rules permitting. We will focus funds, resources and all our efforts to meet even more aggressive targets in these nine circles.”
