    NEW DELHI: Bharti Airtel on Tuesday announced that it has launched fourth generation mobile services in Kolkata and claimed that this initiative had also resulted in India becoming one of the first countries in the world to commercially deploy this cutting-edge technology.

    Airtel's 4G (TD-LTE) network was launched by telecom minister Kapil Sibal.

    The launch will trigger a new phase of accelerated equitable and inclusive economic growth through proliferation of broadband services as envisioned by the draft National Telecom Policy, the company said.

    "Today's launch is a major milestone for India and Airtel. Over the past 15 years Airtel has been at the forefront of India's telecom revolution and has set the technology trends in India by aligning with the global standards. We are delighted to now provide leadership in setting the technology standard for 4G services in India by introducing the cutting edge TD-LTE," Bharti Airtel chairman Sunil Mittal said..

    We are confident that others will follow in this direction and participate in our pioneering effort of making TD-LTE the defacto 4G standard in India. I would like to thank all our stakeholders in helping us fulfill the Government's vision of Broadband on Demand, outlined by the Hon'ble Telecom Minister. I would also like to thank the Government of West Bengal for their support and cooperation that has made this launch possible and once again reiterate our commitment to participate in the development of the state," Mittal said.

    "High speed wireless broadband has the potential to transform India, provide a robust platform for building the country's digital economy and truly empower people. With one of the largest pools of young population in the world, India will see massive growth in consumption of data and content over mobile devices and proliferation of mobile commerce. I look forward to Airtel playing a pivotal role in shaping this exciting future for India," Mittal added.

    In 2010, Airtel had successfully bid for BWA license spectrum in Kolkata, Karnataka, Punjab and Maharashtra (excluding Mumbai) circles. It is currently working towards rolling out state-of-the-art networks in circles other than Kolkata.

    And after you finish the initial amount, the fair use practice will apply and the speed will just drop to maybe 400 kbps :)
    Why the TRAI does not actually maybe implement a policy, that if there is fair usage policy, the speed for Fair usage should not be power than 25% of the normal usage speed.
    In some cases the things are ridiculous, for example I read a tata customer had plane for 3G 3.6 Mbps and the data limit was abt 5 GB and the rate was something like 950, and after he uses 5GB the speed becomes 144 Kbps,
    Then seems the TATA guys changed the customers plan without informing him as per that
    They increased the Data to 10 GB but the fair usage policy stated that after he consumes this, data the speed would be 40 Kbps
    How does one relate 3.6 Mbps to 40 Kbps :)
