Bharti Airtel Makes its 3G Debut

bharti airtel, India's largest telecommunications company, launched its first 3G service in Karnataka -- its largest telecom circle Airtel is targeting to launch in all 13 3G license circles by March 2011.

airtel's 3G services, delivered over an HSPA network, offer personalised data usage limits. airtel 3G customers will be empowered to manage their 3G data usage alert and prevent bill shock with proactive, personalized and timely data usage alerts.

"It is indeed the start of a new era when 3G services in India roll out on airtel's network. World over ‘Data traffic' on the back of high speed internet and use of social networking has already exceeded the ‘Voice traffic'. India is ushering in the domain - though later than most of the world - but no doubt we will catch up at a much faster speed. 3G is much more than a technology migration - it is a transformational shift - and airtel's focus would be to bring to its customers an enriched user experience on the back of a world class delivery network. I welcome all 745 million mobile customers of the country to be a part of this journey with airtel!," stated Mr. Sanjay Kapoor, CEO - bharti airtel
