4G coverage to reach 5 million by 2013 in India

While 3G gradually expands its coverage in India, the latest fourth-generation mobile services has seen a rapid growth since its launch in April this year. Bharti Airtel so far added 3,180 TD-LTE subscribers through its 4G network in Kolkata and Bangalore, while state run BSNL has provided 50,077 connections through  4G/WiMAX. The relevation was made by communications and information technology Milind Deora.

The growth for TD-LTE market also depends on the OEM's such as Nokia, Samsung, Apple which are expected to launch LTE-enabled smartphones in the near future.

"Indian telecom operators should offer cost effective 4G services in order to increase the subscriber base. Currently 4G dongles are costly. If they need to offer cost effective services, 4G penetration should enhance across the world so that equipment prices come down. 4G prices are also reflecting the BWA spectrum price in India.
