Reliance Communications Halves 3G Data Price

Reliance Communications (RComm), India's third-biggest mobile phone carrier by customers, has cut the price of third-generation data services by half, Gurdeep Singh, head of the company's mobile business, said.

Only about 5 per cent of India's 850 million mobile users have subscribed to 3G services, which are estimated to account for 3 per cent of mobile revenue of telecommunication carriers.

Uptake of the premium internet services has been slower than expected as a majority of mobile subscribers mostly use phones to make calls and also partly due to the high pricing of such services.
