Just about a month after the Airtel 3G service launch in Bangalore(on Jan 24) and just after a day’s launch in Jaipur(March 2), one of the mightiest Telecom companies in India Bharti Airtel is all set to storm the National Capital Region – Delhi, Gurgaon, Faridabad and Noida with the launch of its 3G services.

The company is claiming to have operating a robust network powered by 1800 plus 3G sites in the NCR which is by far, the strongest 3G network in the region by any mobile operator and will ensure a seamless 3G experience for 76 Lakh airtel mobile customers in the region. Airtel has also achieved the milestone figure of around Half a Million 3G customers across the country since its launch a month and few days back. Great achievement, indeed.
