New Delhi: Bharti Airtel will launch its 4G services in Kotkata this month, Chief Executive Sanjay Kapoor said Tuesday.
“It will be launched this month in Kolkata,” Kapoor told reporters on the sidelines of a telecom event here.
4G is a successor to the 3G and 2G families, and is expected to be five times quicker than 3G services.
The firm bagged Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) spectrum in four circles — Kolkata, Maharastra, Punjab and Karnataka — for Rs.3,314.36 crore in 2010.
Another firm, Reliance Infotel, earlier known as Infotel Broadband Services, which won a pan-India licence for BWA spectrum, is yet to announce its roll-out plans for 4G services.
Other firms which have won spectrum in the auction include Qualcomm, Tikona, Aircel and Augere.
