Airtel has just launched 4G LTE in India. Now, India is one of the first countries to get the 4G Spectrum. In United States, only Verizon is the company which has launched the 4G Spectrum. Kapil Sibal said that the 3G was not successful so they launched the 4G LTE. Airtel is the world’s third biggest Company in terms of mobile services. Now Indian people can enjoy the High Speed Download and High Speed Upload. Airtel said that people could enjoy download speed up to 100 MBps and upload speed up to 40 MBps. It is a lot faster than 3G as download speed in 3G is 3.1MBps and upload speed upto 2 MBps. Airtel has launched 4G LTE just in Kolkata and will launch in Bangalore after 30 Days. Then its next step will be to launch the Spectrum in Punjab and Maharashtra.
“Today’s launch is a major milestone for India and Airtel. Over the past 15 years Airtel has been at the forefront of India’s telecom revolution and has set the technology trends in India by aligning with the global standards. We are delighted to now provide leadership in setting the technology standard for 4G services in India by introducing the cutting edge TD-LTE,” Bharti Airtel chairman Sunil Mittal said..
We are confident that others will follow in this direction and participate in our pioneering effort of making TD-LTE the defacto 4G standard in India. I would like to thank all our stakeholders in helping us fulfill the Government’s vision of Broadband on Demand, outlined by the Hon’ble Telecom Minister. I would also like to thank the Government of West Bengal for their support and cooperation that has made this launch possible and once again reiterate our commitment to participate in the development of the state,” Mittal said.
“High speed wireless broadband has the potential to transform India, provide a robust platform for building the country’s digital economy and truly empower people. With one of the largest pools of young population in the world, India will see massive growth in consumption of data and content over mobile devices and proliferation of mobile commerce. I look forward to Airtel playing a pivotal role in shaping this exciting future for India,” Mittal added.
Airtel’s 4G (TD-LTE) network was launched by Kapil Sibal, Minister of Communications and Information Technology. The launch will trigger a new phase of accelerated equitable and inclusive economic growth through proliferation of broadband services as envisioned by Sibal in the draft National Telecom Policy.
