Reliance Communications to float largest telecom tender

Anil Dhirubhai Amabni groups biggest company, Reliance Communications Ltd [RCom] will float the worlds largest Telecom tender in few weeks. The size of this tender is estimated to be around $9 Billion for 100 Million phone lines much larger than BSNL’s Mega tender of 45 Million lines.

The tender is likely to be awarded to 4 or 5 companies as their is no single company in the world which can fulfill the needs of RCom. RCom which is adding close to one million users a month [most of them in CDMA] is all set to achieve greater landmarks in 2007 as it will roll-out its GSM services on PAN-India basis. This will most likely include RCom’s equipment and gears required for 3G rollout.

In a separate development, RCom which previously had bid unsuccessfully for telecom licenses in Egypt and Bhutan earlier this year has now placed its bid for providing fixed wireless service in Bahrain. Vodafone is also one of the contenders in the race. I would really like to see RCom expand beyond India in wireless services and emerge as the leading Telecom company globally.
