HISTORY

Hutchison Max Telecom Ltd. (HMTL), a joint venture between Hutchison Whampoa and the
Max Group, was established on 21 February 1992. The licence to operate in Mumbai (then
Bombay) circle was awarded to Hutchison Max by the Department of
Telecommunications (DoT) in November 1994. The cellular service branded "Max Touch" was
launched the same year.[5] Hutchison Max entered into the Delhi telecom circle in December
1999, the Kolkata circle in July 2000 and the Gujarat circle in September 2000. Licences for
these circles had initially been awarded by the DoT in 1994, 1997 and 1995 respectively.
Between 1992 and 2006, Hutchison acquired interests in all 23 mobile telecom circles of India.
HMTL was renamed Hutchison Essar Limited (HEL) in August 2005. In Delhi, Uttar Pradesh
(East), Rajasthan and Haryana, Essar Group was the major partner. But later Hutch took the
majority stake. By the time of Hutchison Telecom's Initial Public Offering in 2004, Hutchison
Whampoa had acquired interests in six mobile telecommunications operators providing service
in 13 of India's 23 licence areas and following the completion of the acquisition of BPL Mobile
that number increased to 16. In 2006, it announced the acquisition of a company (Essar
Spacetel A subsidiary of Essar Group) that held licence applications for the seven remaining
licence areas. Initially, the company grew its business in the largest wireless markets in India
in cities like Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata. In these densely populated urban areas it was able to
establish a robust network, well-known brand and large distribution network all vital to long-
term success in India. Then it also targeted business users and high-end post-paid customers
which helped Hutchison Essar to consistently generate a higher Average Revenue Per
User (ARPU) than its competitors. By adopting this focused growth plan, it was able to establish
leading positions in India's largest markets providing the resources to expand its footprint
nationwide. In February 2007, Hutchison Telecom announced that it had entered into a binding
agreement with a subsidiary of Vodafone Group Plc to sell its 67% direct and indirect equity and
loan interests in Hutchison Essar Limited for a total cash consideration (before costs, expenses
and interests) of approximately $11.1 billion.

A 'You and I' print advertisement of Hutch featuring Cheeka (dog)


Hutch was often praised for its award winning advertisements which all follow a clean,
minimalist look. A recurrent theme is that its message "Hi" stands out visibly though it uses only
white letters on red background. Another successful ad campaign in 2003 featured a pug named
Cheeka following a boy around in unlikely places, with the tagline, "Wherever you go, our
network follows." The simple yet powerful advertisement campaigns won it many admirers.
Advertisements featuring the pug were continued by Vodafone even after rebranding. The brand
subsequently introduced ZooZoos which gained even higher popularity than was created by the
Pug. Vodafone's creative agency is O&M while Harit Nagpal was the Marketing Director during
the various phases of its brand evolution.

VISION OF RELIANCE COMMUNICATION

VISION

We will leverage our strengths to execute complex global-scale projects to facilitate leading-

edge information and communication services affordable to all individual consumers and

businesses in India.

We will offer unparalleled value to create customer delight and enhance business productivity.

We will also generate value for our capabilities beyond Indian borders and enable millions of

India's knowledge workers to deliver their services globally.

Reliance Communications is now among the three most valuable private sector companies in

India, and the five most valuable telecom companies in Asia. In the current

Fiscal, Reliance Communications will spend Rs 16,000 crore to further expand and strengthen its

network coverage across India and the rest of the world.

In addition to organic growth, Reliance Communications will leverage the advantages derived

from this impressive financial platform to explore and pursue any significant

Opportunities available in the telecommunications sector. "We are currently evaluating a number

of inorganic opportunities in select international markets to further expand our footprint,"

Ambani said.
Reliance Communications One India, One Tariff plan allowed millions to connect across India

at just one rupee a minute. The company was the first one to break the Rs 1,000 entry-barrier

with the launch of the lowest-cost classic brand handset at Rs 777.

As per its expansion plan, Reliance Communications will have the single largest wireless

network in the world, covering over 900 mn Indians or more than 15% of the global population.

It will cover 23,000 towns or every single Indian habitation with a population of over 1,000.

Reliance Communications will cover almost 100% of all rail routes, providing seamless voice,

video, radio, and Internet connectivity to 14 mn commuters every day. It will also cover almost

100% of all national highways, and 84% of all state highways, giving millions of users the power

to talk, text, surf, play, chat or simply stay in touch across nearly the entire length of India's

2,00,000-km-long road network.

Having achieved tremendous growth, the main challenge for Reliance Communications is to

improve quality of service and ARPU. Its enterprise business is also not in a position to compete

with the global majors. Stock market valuations may boost the fortunes of an entrepreneur, but

Ambani needs to address the issues faced by the growing mobile customer base, especially in

India, where bureaucracy takes pride in checking the businessman.

Videocon Telecommunications Limited, formerly Videocon Mobile Services, was an Indian
cellular service provider that offered GSM mobile services in India under the brand name
Videocon. The company was a subsidiary of the Videocon Group, and was headquartered
at Gurgaon, Haryana.[1] Videocon launched its services on 7 April 2010 in Mumbai. At its peak,
Videocon held licences to provide mobile services in 18 out of 22 telecom circles of India.
However, Videocon launched commercial services only in 11 out of the 18 circles it held licences
in. Following the 2G spectrum scam, the Supreme Court cancelled 122 licences issued by the
Indian Government in 2008, including 21 licences belonging to Videocon.
In the 2012 spectrum auction, Videocon won back licences in 6 circles. On 16 March 2016,
Videocon sold its spectrum in all six circles it operated in to Bharti Airtel. Videocon shut down
its network and discontinued operations in the Gujarat and UP (West) circles on 26 December
2015, and in the Haryana, Madhya Pradhesh, Bihar and UP (East) circles on 11 May 2016.
Videocon's operations in the Punjab circle are run through its wholly owned subsidiary Quadrant
Televentures Ltd (formerly HFCL Infotel). Quadrant's holdings were not a part of the sale to
Airtel, and the company continues to offer GSM mobile services in Punjab. Quadrant also offers
broadband and fixed line services in Punjab under its Connect Broadband brand.
Vision & Mission
"...through ingenious strategy..."
"...interpid entrepreneurship..."
"...improved technology..."
"...innovative products..."
At Videocon, all our efforts are centered around the customer and his needs. We are committed
to delight and deliver beyond what is expected. By focusing on the right means, we have been
successful in building a robust and dependable Videocon Value Chain.

Ingenious Strategy
In today's competitive world, what it takes for a business to survive is a lot of advance planning
and a clear strategy. There is a strong need for bounded rationality, spontaneity and out-of-the-
box thinking to tackle every scenario that could be imaginable or unthinkable. Now that's
something which cannot be found in a textbook. Videocon's resourceful strategies are flexible
enough to change with changing ground realities, and even change the rules of the game when
needed.

Intrepid Entrepreneurship
An enterprise with odds stacked against it makes a great business sense. This is because higher
the obstacles lower the number of players likely to be active in that field; thus paving the way for
extraordinary returns. What is required is a bold approach, a confidence and a willingness to
brave the odds. Videocon's foray into oil and gas is one such brave endeavor that arises from
immense faith in the competence of the company's in-house managerial talent.

Improved Technology
With the rapidly changing industrial scenario, technology is no longer a premium value-add.
Rather, in recent years, a constant update of technology has become a bare necessity. As a
forward looking company, Mdeocon is extremely vigilant in terms of staying updated with the
latest technology and replacing outdated technology with the best-in-class offers of the times.

Innovative Products
Product development, innovation and customization are the tools Videocon uses to stay ahead of
the competition. After all, we do realize that continuous stream of innovative products excites
the market and enhances brand recall. This is a strategy that Videocon highly banks on,
especially on the domestic front.

Insightful Marketing
The market share battle scene has long shifted from technology and processes to the psyche of
the customer. This means that those with deeper insights into the elusive mind of the buyer are
likely to dominate. Videocon is reinforcing marketing strengths to read the pulse of the market
more broadly and clearly; to create products that fit perfectly into the customer's preferences.

Inspired Thinking
The future is unpredictable, but if we don't do anything about it, the road ahead will be fraught
with grave risk. And so, Videocon extrapolates future trends on the basis of current changes in
technology and preferences, as well as sheer gut feel. Business instincts are worth their weight in
gold. Driven by these instincts, the company has made some bold forays into fields of oil and
gas, which has proved to be absolute money-spinners.

Tata DoCoMo is an Indian mobile network operator, which is a joint venture between Tata
Teleservices and NTT Docomo since November 2008. It is the country's eighth largest
operator in terms of subscribers (including both GSM and CDMA).

HISTORY
Tata DOCOMO is part of the Indian conglomerate Tata Group. The company received the
license to operate GSM services in nineteen telecom circles and was allotted spectrum in
eighteen of these circles and launched GSM services on 24 June 2009. It began operations first
in South India and currently operates GSM services in eighteen of twenty two telecom circles. It
has licences to operate in Delhi but has not been allocated spectrum from the Government.
Docomo provides services throughout India. Tata DOCOMO offers both prepaid and
postpaid cellular phone services. It has become very popular with its one-second pulse especially
in semi-urban and rural areas.
In November 2008, NTT Docomo invested $2.2 billion in Tata Teleservices, at 117 a share for a
26.5% stake in the latter. DoCoMo, TTSL and Tata Sons had in March 2009 signed shareholder
agreement for the business alliance. In March 2009, DoCoMo acquired a 27.31% in Tata
Teleservices for Rs 12,924 crore and 20.25% in Tata Teleservices (Maharashtra) Ltd, the listed
arm of TTSL, for 949 crore. Overall, DoCoMo holds 26.5%in Tata Teleservices.
On 5 November 2010, Tata DOCOMO became the first private sector telecom company to
launch 3G services in India. Tata DOCOMO had about 42.34 million users at the end of
December 2010.
In April 2011, Tata DOCOMO signed Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor as its brand ambassador
on a three-year contract, now the contract is expired. For the southern states of Tamil
Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, actors Vijay and Ram Charan Teja are the brand ambassadors
respectively.

Rebranding
On 20 October 2011, the Tata Group brought its brands Indicom (CDMA), Tata Docomo
(GSM), Walky (Fixed Wireless Phone), Photon, INTERNET under the Tata DOCOMO name.
All subscribers to these services were migrated to the Docomo brand on 20 October 2011. In
2015, Virgin Mobile - the other brand under Tata Group was also merged with Tata Docomo. T24
Mobile is not part of the rebranding and continue to retain their names.

NTT DOCOMO exit


According to the agreement between the Tata Group and NTT DoCoMo, the latter had the right
to sell its stake if Tata Docomo missed performance targets, with Tata getting right of first
refusal. On 25 April 2014, NTT Docomo had announced that they would sell all of their shares in
Tata DoCoMo and exit the Indian telecom industry as they had incurred a total loss of $1.3
billion. Under the joint venture agreement between the two groups, NTT Docomo would either
increase its stake from 26.5% to 51%, or sell all of its shares, depending on the performance of
Tata Docomo in the Indian market.
Since Tata was unable to find a buyer for the shares, they sought the approval of the RBI, in
November 2014, to buy back the shares from NTT Docomo for $1.1 billion (at 58.045 per share),
half the price paid by them in 2009. The RBI had approved the deal in January 2015, but
however, went back on their decision and rejected the deal in March 2015,
citing FEMA regulations. Following the RBI decision, the Tata Group offered to purchase
Docomo's stake at 23.34 a share on the basis of a fair market value determined on 30 June 2014
by PwC. NTT Docomo then moved the London Court of International Arbitration seeking a
valuation of 58 a share.
On 28 February 2017, Tata and NTT Docomo resolved their dispute, after the former announced
that it would pay the latter US$ 1.18 billion in exchange for NTT Docomo's shares in the joint
venture.

Mission and Vision

The broad vision of the Group is to be a truly global company regarded for its commitment,
quality and trust.

Ratan N Tata, the chairman of Tata Sons, the Tata promoter company outlines this vision with
these words - "One hundred years from now, I expect the Tatas to be much bigger than it is now.
More importantly, I hope the group comes to be regarded as being the best in India best in the
manner in which we operate, best in the products we deliver and best in our value systems and
ethics. Having said that, I hope that a hundred years from now we will spread our wings far
beyond India..."
