Idea Cellular India's sixth-biggest mobile phone operator, expects to start 3G wireless services by end-2010 or in January and would extensively roll out 3G networks in the January-March quarter of 2011. Idea, part of the Aditya Birla conglomerate, had won 3G radio airwaves in 11 of India's 22 telecoms zones in an auction earlier this year.
The Times of India.

Bharti Airtel has announced plans to launch its 3G services in India before the end of 2010. Airtel successfully bid for 3G spectrum in 13 telecom circles across India and is rolling out networks in these geographies. These 13 telecom circles also constitute 68 per cent of Airtelís revenue market share. This includes key metros such as Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai and Hyderabad, which account for 21 per cent of all data traffic in the country and are expected to have the strongest uptake of 3G services.
Airtel is also in advanced discussions with other operators to offer 3G services to its customers across the country. This will not only ensure seamless roaming, but also offer 3G broadband to its entire customer base in India. Bharti will be deploying high-speed packet access (HSPA) networks provided by Ericsson, Nokia Siemens Network and Huawei.
