Sistema Shyam Teleservices (SSTL) which runs its telecom services under the MTS brand in India today announced the roll-out of its 3G plus telecom network across nine circles in India.

The company will roll out the 3G plus services in Delhi, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kolkata, Uttar Pradesh (West) and West Bengal.

According to the company, the dongle provides data speeds of up to 9.8 Mbps. To use the new dongle, prepaid customers will need to pay Rs 1,399 to get an MBlaze Ultra dongle bundled with 10GB of data, which will be valid for 30 days from the date of activation.
