MTS’s Discover reports 100 per cent traffic growth in 2014


KOLKATA: Sistema Shyam TeleServices Ltd (SSTL), the telecom services provider under MTS brand, which launched ‘Discover’, has witnessed a traffic growth of almost 100 per cent.

“It is witnessing a traffic growth of almost 100 per cent from 1 lakh to 2 lakh in 2014,” informed MTS India head, marketing communications Gaurav Kackar.

Launched in 2012, ‘Discover’ provides a platform to upcoming singers to showcase their talent.

SSTL also continues its association with the NH7 Weekender, a music festival. The weekender is a music festival conceptualised and started by Only Much Louder (OML), a management company for Indian music groups. The event started in Pune, but now has been expanded to Delhi, Bengaluru and Kolkata.

“As the music programme gets near, we experience 5,000-7,000 hits by music lovers every day. MTS is a youth oriented brand and I feel music and youth are inseparable. This is the best way to connect our brand with the young India. Also, the Facebook page of MTS brand has more than 2 million fans,” said Kackar.

Earlier, MTS had served as a launch pad in India for some great Indian and international artists from Dhruv Visvanath, Nischay Parekh and Prateek Kuhad to Cardiff folk duo Zervas & Pepper and Australian alternative pop sensation Kate Miller-Heidke.

Besides the music festival, the company will also set up a special 'MTS Lounge' where fans would be entertained with some surprise performances.

The Bacardi NH7 Weekender 2014 festival is scheduled to start from 1 November 2014 in Kolkata and will end on 30 November in Delhi.
