Stung by Centre's criticism about violation of licence conditions by WLL operators, Tata Teleservices Ltd (TTSL) on Saturday claimed that it has adhered to norms "in spirit and letter" and willfully restricted services to short distance charging area (SDCA).
"The commpany uses 'CDMA1x' technology to offer WLL mobile telephony services to its customers and has adhered, in letter and spirit, to conditions under which it had obtained licence to offer these services", TTSL said in a statement in Mumbai.
The Tata group company's response comes in the wake of caution given by empowered Group of Ministers (GoM) that pending final decision on enforcement of WLL services within local call area, the basic operators violating the licence terms and subscribers availing themselves of such facilities would be doing at their "own risk".
TTSL said there is no risk to the Tata Indicom Service due to any possible non-adherence to regulatory guidelines.
