India celebrates 61 years of Independance

Wishing India and Indians peace and prosperity. May God shower His blessings and Mercy to these people.
Wow!! 61 years and going..... India has not invaded any country in the past, but was invaded and robbed and even today its an emerging super power. Go India go....
Lot of technological advancements and growing. India has been a secret of success for many people and countries.... I'm proud to be an Indian.
Having said that, I believe that its the responsibility of every Indian to remove all the social barriers that we face. Stop being selfish and insensitive to your society and become a responsible Indian... Mera Bharath Mahan!!!

Bonus No: 3 - Number Portability in India

Number Portability is a concept of having a single number and an option for the consumer to opt for any telecom operator. This was actually planned to be implemented in April 2008 in all the Metros of India as per the press releases of DOT and TRAI. But lets see when its gonna be a reality.

With more mobile subscribers everyday, this is a good initiative. People will now be able to choose their number as well as their service provider. This will indeed gear up the competition and bring better services to the consumer. Already news has it that Bharati Airtel is supporting this.

Bonus: WiMAX coming to India soon too...

While going through the Bharati Exhibitions site I came across this too... WOW!! WiMAX coming to India soon. So we can expect many WiMAX devices to pop in to India by the end of this year or early next year.

For those scratching their heads....

Wikipedia defines it this way:
"WiMAX, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a telecommunications technology that provides wireless data in a variety of ways, from point-to-point links to full mobile cellular type access. It is based on the IEEE 802.16 standard, which is also called WirelessMAN. "

In simple terms, its similar to Wifi but has a longer range like the 3G, so there may be a service provider for the same... I heard of WiMAX based modems also.... Anyone else who would like to shed more light on this???

You can register yourselves for the event here, which is going to be on Aug22nd 2008 at New Delhi.

India: 3G is finally here

So its finally here. A dream come true for many Indians who were drooling over other countries.. India has finally decided to auction the 3G bandwidth on 17th October 2008 in the 4th International Conference at Mumbai, India.

"So does it mean I can start using 3G from August?" You may ask... Well.. not exctly... The services are expected to start by the end of this year(2008). Its upto the telecom industries to start. Lets hope the best....

I donno why India is like this... When ppl in other countries were using GPRS on their fone, a color fone In India was a distant dream. Then when 3G was polpular, India was stuck with GPRS on 3G handsets... Now HSPDA is in and India just brings 3G.....LOL..... Better late than never... Lets hope for the best...
