Airtel has launched 3G services in Punjab. It rolled out 4G services in Chandigarh – Tricity last year and in Ludhiana in Punjab last week. It offers 2G, 3G and 4G services in these two areas in Punjab and it also offers 4G on mobile in Ludhiana. The company claims that it is the largest mobile operator in Punjab with over 7.5 million customers.
With the new Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) clearance, Airtel and other operators have started offering 3G intra-circle-roaming (ICR) through intra-circle roaming pacts with others. This would expand their reach and offer 3G services where they don’t have licenses.
Airtel 3G ICR (intra circle roaming) would be available to customers in Chandigarh – Tricity, Ludhiana, Jagraon, Malerkotla, Nabha and Nawanshaha. 3G ICR services on Airtel would be available at prices starting at Rs. 23.
