Airtel rolls out 3G in Karnataka; All India roll out by March 2011

Airtel has launched 3G services in Karnataka today, the operator’s largest circle in the country.

The company plans to launch its 3G services in all 13 circles by March this year, across Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Mumbai, North-East circle, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, UP-West and West Bengal.

The service will come with personalised usage limits to allow people to pick and choose how to best use the 3G services. The company has launched plans which are time based, for light users and also flexible plans for heavy users.

Airtel also plans to give users some control by allowing customers to monitor the usage.
According to Airtel CEO Sanjay Kapoor, Data traffic on the back of high speed internet and use of social networking has already exceeded voice. 3G is much more than a technology migration – it is a transformational shift. --------
