Idea Cellular, India’s No. 3 mobile phone company, plans to launch 3G services in Delhi on its own network in April, a top company executive said, adding that this will make it the first network in the country to use the more efficient 900 Mhz band. The Aditya Birla Group firm had won 5 MHz in the lucrative band in Delhi for Rs 3,704.8 crore in February 2014.

It already has 2G sites in the circle, which it is upgrading with 3G technology. The company will also set up new 3G sites, Sashi Shankar, chief marketing officer at Idea Cellular, told ET. Until now, Idea has used roaming pacts to offer 3G in Delhi. Overall, the company provides 3G services in 21 service areas of India except Orissa.

The telco recently roped in Swedish telecom gear maker Ericsson for the 2G network upgradation and 3G network roll out in the Delhi circle. Original post at ET Telecom
