“The existing smartphone ecosystem has clearly shifted towards 4G devices as customers look to upgrade to high speed 4G services. The deployment and augmentation of 4G and re-farming of 3G spectrum is in line with our national strategy,” Manu Sood, Hub CEO- Upper North, Bharti Airtel said. In Haryana, the company was providing 3G service in 2100 Mhz band which it will now use for 4G services.
