India’s leading telecom service provider Bharti Airtel on Wednesday received a formal communication from the Department of Telecom (DoT) for the allotment of additional spectrum to the company in five circles. These five circles are West Bengal, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh (west), Assam and Haryana.
Bharti Airtel had applied for a total of ten telecom circles across the country. The other circles which are expected to get additional spectrum in a couple of months are Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Bihar and Tamil Nadu.
This move by Bharti clearly indicates that company wants to spread the Airtel fever in every nook and corner of the country and even our government is supporting this. Time for existing telecom service provider in these areas to buckle up as they are going to face serious competition from this telecom giant.
