India’s leading telecom operator Bharti Airtel on August 6 had announced launch of its 4G mobile phone services whereas Vodafone has started with Kochi.
Reliance Jio, the telecom arm of the cash-rich Reliance Industries is likely to start 4G voice and data services in December, while, Idea Cellular is planning to launch 4G services by the first half of 2016.
At a price tag of 3,000, the device will be cheapest among 4G handsets. Currently, the lowest 4G-enabled handset comes for over 4,000.
