Infotel Broadband planning to set up 1,00,000 towers for 4G roll-out
Now Infotel Broadband is planning to set up some 1,00,000 towers in order to roll out the 4G services. At the time of announcing its buy-out of Infotel, Mukesh Ambani said that the company would be more interested in setting up an ‘Asset-light’ strategy where it may lease towers instead of setting up new ones, but now it seems there is a change of plan.
With the roll out of its services in Kolkata telecom circle, Airtel has become the first telecom operator to bring in the 4G services in India. We feel Airtel 4G is a bit too costly and expect a price-war when Infotel Broadband will enter this space commercially.
