Bangalore: Reliance Communications, India’s fully integrated telecommunications service provider, today announced ambitious plans to expand its pan-India network significantly through strategic 2G GSM Intra-Circle Roaming agreements with existing operators, offering its customers wider coverage and uninterrupted service across the country. Once in place, RCOM’s 2G GSM customers will be able to roam seamlessly on all partner networks, free of any additional cost.



These ICR agreements will increase RCOM’s national 2G GSM network footprint by 10,000 base stations and bring in an addressable market of over 150 million customers, adding up to a market opportunity of over Rs 10,000 crore. All agreements with existing telecom operators are likely to be completed by the end of the second quarter of the ongoing financial year.



“We are already in advanced stages of talks with several operators across the country to put these agreements in place, and are delighted to announce the first of many such alliances today—a pan-India 2G GSM ICR agreement with Aircel,” Mr Gurdeep Singh, President and Chief Executive Officer (Wireless), Reliance Communications, said. “In today’s highly competitive and cluttered telecom scenario, this agreement will expand RCOM’s network footprint at no upfront cost—a ‘Pay As You Use’ model—and improve both service quality and operational efficiencies. We believe that the iming for such alliances is just right, as the industry is now moving into consolidation mode,” he added.



The innovative 2G GSM ICR arrangements with various other operators will see a fast-paced expansion of RCOM’s GSM network footprint at no extra cost, optimize Capex and Opex spends and allow the Company’s customers a seamless roaming experience on partner networks. In addition, increased capacities will significantly improve both outdoor and in-building coverage, providing RCOM customers with an enriched mobility and data experience.
