Airtel has decided to open up 1000 more stores by December, to give customers a first-hand experience about its 4G services and information about its low-priced handsets.

Reports suggest, that Airtel is in talks with Samsung, ZTE, Huawei and Xiaomi to launch affordable 4G devices starting from Rs. 4000, later this year. Airtel is also said to be expanding, by opening many company-owned company operated (coco) retail outlets. There are already 300 stores, and the company plans to open a 1000 more by December.

According to statistics, Airtel is said to be spread across 1.5 million outlets in towns and villages and covers approximately 86.8 per cent of the population as of March 2015. Airtel, exclusively provides 4G services in over 45 cities via TD-LTE & FDD-LTE technology.

Other competitors like, Reliance Jio Infocomm are said to re-enter the telecom business with a smartphone priced at Rs. 4000 by December, which will offer voice and data services at Rs.300-500 per month.

With Airtel’s competitors also stepping it up, it is to be seen whether Airtel will be the largest 4G providing company. However, Airtel has not confirmed any of these sources.

Airtel should compare itself with tata DoCoMo and then decide about the tariff and pricing. Someone commented it is affordable for ambanis is very very true. In a price sensitive market like India they should be sensible in pricing. Otherwise I feel Airtel is living in a bubble that is going to burst soon.
