New Delhi, April 4 (IANS) Tata Teleservices Friday received permission to start mobile phone services in three more areas in the country, namely Assam, Jammu and Kashmir and the north-eastern states, to help it become a pan-India player. Technically, the permission came in the form of getting the required spectrum - the radio frequency through which the services can be rolled out. The company uses the CDMA technology and awaits permission to start GSM services.

“Tata Teleservices has received a start-up spectrum of 2.5 MHz for rolling out its network in the northeast, Jammu and Kashmir and Assam,” said a company spokesperson.

The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has started allocating spectrum to operators since Thursday. The first to receive was Shyam-Sistema.
