Indian telecom giant Bharti Airtel has already launched its 4G services in Kolkata, Pune, Bengaluru, Mohali, Chandigarh and Panchkula and now the company is all set to offer 4G services in the capital, New Delhi. Sources familiar with the development have said that testing is already underway.
The BWA spectrum – or 4G licenses – were obtained by Qualcomm for Delhi, Haryana, Mumbai and Kerala. Airtel signed a deal back in 2012 with Qualcomm, in order to roll out 4G services on its behalf. The company has other BWA licenses in four circles in Karnataka, Kolkata, Punjab and Maharashtra. Reliance Industries (RIL) has pan India license to operate 4G services and is expected to launch its 4G services in Delhi by the end of 2013.
The 4G services are also expected to be rolled out by Videocon Telecommunication by December 2013. The telecom operator has received license to operate in seven circles in the country, which include Gujarat, Haryana, UP West, UP East, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and Jharkhand.
Many operators are also trying to introduce voice services through 4G, which will also be providing high-speed data services. Through 4G, companies can provide data speeds of up to 100 Mbps.
