Aircel Starts 4G Trials in Andhra Pradesh
Aircel has been into talks for 4G services in India, and the company is currently conducting trials of 4G services in Andhra Pradesh as said by an official these are trials and it can take a while before it is available for the general masses.
“The trials are currently on but we don’t have the required ecosystem, including the 4G-enabled mobile handsets, to launch the services commercially,” Data services are growing exponentially in Andhra Pradesh. About 44% of our 1.85 million subscribers in AP use data services, including 12% for 3G. This has enabled us to double our revenues in 2013 compared to the previous year,” Deepinder Tiwana, AP circle business head of Aircel.

However, Aircel is not the first telecom company to do this, as Reliance has also got the license for this service in the AP circle. Aircel has always kept competitive prices for its services and said that they will be coming up with new voice and data plans to give more value for money. The company was in a loss of 250 crore INR till last year, the business head says that the company has plans to identify the priority segments and are accordingly drawing up on the strategies to drive future growth.
