Hyderabad: Tata Teleservices (TTSL), India's leading telecom service provider, has completed setting up corridors in Andhra Pradesh ensuring continuous coverage on four major roadways in the State.
According to a press release from the company, these corridors are between Hyderabad and Warangal; Hyderabad and Vijaywada; Visakhapatnam and Vijayawada and Vijaywada and Tirupati.
Prabhat Pani, chief operating officer, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka circles, TTSL, said: "The completion of corridor connectivity on four key roadways in the state is a major landmark in the coverage expansion of Tata Indicom. This is part of our endeavour to provide value-for-money to customers by delivering wider coverage at the most affordable tariffs. The four corridors stretching over 1,250km cumulatively account for the highest movement of traffic in the state and continuous coverage enhances the benefits to our customers."
Aiming to acquire a pan-circle footprint in Andhra Pradesh, the company had launched an aggressive expansion programme in mid-2004. The intensive expansion programme was implemented as per schedule with Tata Indicom rolling out services in around 175 towns within the past six months. This was made possible by erecting more than 250 high capacity cell sites to strengthen the network and boost its capacity.
At present, Tata Indicom has 417 cell sites and is present in 198 towns in Andhra Pradesh. Tata Indicom's expansion programme is supported by the Rs445 crore fresh investment earmarked for the circle for 2004-05.
