News / Telecom Airtel to launch 4G services in Kolkata, tomorrow
One of India’s most popular service provider, Bharti Airtel CEO has exclusively confirmed that this cellular company will launch the 4G LTE services in Kolkata tomorrow, 10th of April 2012,. We expect other telecom operators to follow soon. With the launch tentatively scheduled for tomorrow, Bharti Airtel will invariably become the first service provider in the country to offer 4G wireless services in Kolkata.

The high speed service was inaugurated here by union Communications Minister Kapil Sibal. A successor to the 3G and 2G families, 4G is expected to be five times quicker than 3G services. With the 4G wireless services in the country, reports add that users will be able to enjoy download speeds of around 100 Megabits per second on the move, which can go up to 1 Gigabits per second, when at a fixed location. It would offer services such as high-definition mobile TV and video conferencing.

As of now, not many 4G handsets are available in India, so we expect airtel to offer 4G dongles to its subscribers. Now what do you think about LTE roll out in India? Will it be a gala success or future of LTE will be just like 3G?
