image

Videocon Telecom,  announced free Data for its all Non data users subscribers as an initiative to educate and encourage them to start using data and get digitally connected. The telco also sets up a free helpline and extends demonstration stations at all its Exclusive branded ‘Videocon Connect’ Retail to educate them on the knowhow of data usage. With a trial offer of 750 MB of free data for all such subscribers valid for 2 months, the telco plans to give away over 1,500 Tera byte of free data to such subscribers.

Mr. Arvind Bali, Director & CEO, Videocon Telecommunications Ltd. said, “Its said charity begins at home, and as a part of PM’s ‘Digital India’ initiative, we wanted to initiate something for our own customers to start with. We have been taking initiatives to increase our data penetration month on month, and as we speak we have a good mobile internet penetration of 64% odd on customers with data enabled handsets. Yet there is a set of customers who despite owning a data enabled handset have not used data since they came aboard on our Network.

The telco conducted a study on these non-data users to understand their reasons for not using data, and found out that over 86% of these non users having data enabled handsets aspire to use data but are reluctant to do so. The study suggested the 2 key reasons being 1) Inadequate knowledge and that initial hesitation to ask someone on knowhow. 2) Perception of data cost being high.

The telco’s plans to address both these concerns by educating such first time users thru a newly setup Digital helpline and demonstration stations at its exclusive branded ‘Videocon Connect’ stores. These first time users will be extended basic knowhow of using mobile data including browsing the net, using search engines, setting up various social media accounts etc. The telco will also be offering free data of 750 MB valid for 2 months as a trial offer for all such subscribers. To avail this free data, subscribers will just needs to give a missed call on a pre-defined no, and based on eligibility, subscriber will be extended free data followed by a call from the Digital Helpline on the knowhow. With the initiative, the telco is also expecting customers to upgrade their handsets to data enabled handsets.

Videocon To Launch 4G Services at 2G/3G Rates In UP East,UP West and Bihar by this Year end

image

Videocon Telecom on Thursday said it has plans to invest Rs. 1,200 crores over three years on high-speed 4G mobile services to be launched in UP and Bihar by December at rates at par with 2G and 3G Internet services.

The company will also offer 4G mobile Internet plans bundled with mobile devices in these service areas.

“We have partially launched our 2G services in UP East, UP West and Bihar service areas. Our plan is to launch 4G services across select cities starting December with an investment of Rs. 1,200 crores spread over three years,” Videocon Telecom Director and CEO Arvind Bali told PTI.
The company has selected telecom equipment firms Huawei and Nokia Networks as its technology partner to launch 4G service in 29 cities across these service area and Deloitte as its consulting partner.

Telecom equipment companies claim to have achieved 4G mobile broadband speed of about 68 megabit per second (Mbps) in India. At a speed of 1.5Mbps, a user can watch high definition video without any buffering which is similar to watching video on television.

At a speed of 68Mbps, a video equivalent to general Bollywood movie can be downloaded in about 2 minutes.

“We will offer 4G mobile broadband at par with 2G and 3G rates in 29 cities. People will be able to make voice calls using the broadband that will be offered to them. We are going to deploy Voice over LTE (VoLTE) technology for this. In rest of the cities we will offer 2G service,” Bali said.

The company will use its entire spectrum in 1800MHz band that it won in November 2012 auction for 4G service. The frequency that the company holds has most developed ecosystem of 4G services both in terms of equipments and consumer devices.

Videocon has permit to operate in 7 service areas – Punjab, Gujarat, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar (including Jharkhand), Uttar Pradesh East and West but was operating only in four service areas.

Among the other opportunities, Bali said the company will have intra-circle roaming (ICR) arrangements with other players for 4G data, which could come as an added business line for them and as a barter for voice ICR.

The Punjab telecom arm of Videocon in January got pan-India Internet service provider licence. The company has plans to prioritise its ISP rollout in these circles to offer Wi-Fi to reduce loading its 4G data services.
