Back in March, Airtel launched its 3G services in India. Airtel has won 3G license for 13 telecom circles in India – Mumbai, Delhi, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh (West), Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, West Bengal, Himachal Pradesh, Bihar, Assam, North East, Jammu & Kashmir. Airtel has already launched its 3G services in most of the telecom circle, but it has failed to launch 3G in all the circle. Now, Airtel went a step ahead and launched its 3G services in India.
In the first phase of rollout in these states, Airtel has launched its 3G services in 12 major towns including Indore, Bhopal, Jabalpur, Gwalior, Raipur, Dewas, Rau, Pithampur, Mandideep, Malanpur, Bhilai and Durg. Airtel 3G will be introduced in 35 more towns across Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh in weeks to come. With this, Airtel mobile customers across these states will now be able to experience the Airtel 3G advantage and enjoy a host of innovative service capabilities including fast mobile internet access, Mobile TV, video calling, video streaming and social networking – at anytime, from anywhere. Airtel also offers high speed USB data cards that provide customers with 3G access on laptops.
There are not only states like Punjab and Maharashtra that yet to have to receive 3G services in their State but many cities which are part of states where 3G has been launched are without 3G services not only from Airtel but other Networks also. While the world get readies to embrace 4G in their lives we just hope good quality 3G service is available in India by then.
