INDIA: Bharti Airtel has launched 4G mobile broadband services in Chandigarh, Mohali and Panchkula.
"This launch is another first by Airtel that further enhances the footprint of mobile broadband in India. We are optimistic about the potential of Airtel 4G services and invite our data savvy customers in Punjab to enjoy this world class data experience," said Jagbir Singh, Bharti Airtel CTO and director for Network Services Group.
In 2010, Airtel had successfully bid for BWA license spectrum in Kolkata, Karnataka, Punjab and Maharashtra (excluding Mumbai) circles. Additionally, earlier last year, Bharti Airtel acquired 49 percent interest in Qualcomm AP’s India entities that hold BWA licenses in Delhi, Mumbai, Haryana and Kerala.
The company has launched its 4G LTE services in Kolkata, Bengaluru, Pune and now Chandigarh, and is currently working toward rolling out state-of-the-art networks in the remaining license circles
