The Supreme Court verdict ordering the cancellation of 122 licences for 2G telephony has brought together Unitech Ltd and Telenor, the warring partners of Unitech Wireless (Tamil Nadu) Pvt. Ltd., which operates GSM services under the Uninor brand.
The two companies have put their differences on backburner and are jointly working towards a strategy to come out their trouble, industry sources said.
Telenor says the verdict was unfair. Sigve Brekke, a Telenor nominee in the Unitech Wireless board and its managing director and Sanjay Chandra, Unitech’s managing director, will soon meet to discuss the venture’s future, the sources said.
Telenor owns 67.25% in Unitech Wireless, while Unitech holds the remaining 32.75%.
