Tata Teleservices Ltd, one of the leading mobile telephone service providers in the country using CDMA technology on Monday said it has earmarked $2 billion as capital expenditure for rolling out services through the other technology, GSM.
"We will roll out GSM services in few weeks," company managing director Anil Sardana told reporters in New Delhi.
Tata'a move will make it the second private telecom company offering services on both CDMA and GSM platforms, after Reliance Communication (R-Com).
R-Com launched GSM services earlier this year.
State-run telecom companies, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) and Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL) are also offering both technologies.
