Sanjay Kapoor, CEO of Bharti Airtel for India & South Asia, said, "In 2G, we were trailing behind global majors. When we launched 3G, we were 4-5 years behind. We are happy to say that in the case of 4G, we are in line with global players. 18 operators launched LTE globally. We are amongst the first one to launch TD LTE services. We believe that broadband has great opportunity in India. Fixed line is almost absent in India. 4G has an exciting option to offer where fiber is not present. Customers in Kolkata are enjoying video games, surveillance, etc. ZTE has built the 4G network capable of offering speeds of 100 Mbps. There is no wireless technology is available to offer this speed. Speed is the killer application. Given the large youth population, 4G will rock in India. Fiber will continue to be part of our services. Airtel has end-to-end broadband services. It is an exciting day for us. China and India will drive TD LTE broadband growth in the world.
