TT Correspondent |  |  03 Apr 2012

Telecom major Bharti Airtel will roll out 4G services in Kolkata this month, according to reports emerging from GSMA event. .


"It will be launched this month in Kolkata," media reports quoted Bharti Airtel CEO Sanjay Kapoor as saying.  


Last year at a Qualcomm event Sanjay Kapoor had hinted that launch of 4G services in India would  be almost aligned with the rest of the world

4G is a successor to the 3G and 2G families and is expected to be five times quicker than the 3G services in the country.  


Bharti Airtel had paid Rs 3,314.36 crore for getting fourth generation spectrum in four circles - Maharashtra, Karnataka, Punjab and Kolkata - in a government auction held in 2010.


This would be the second launch of 4G services in India after Augere Wireless, which has been offering high-speed data through dongles (data cards) since last month.
