Mobile operators 3G

MTNL was the first operator to roll out 3G services. Later BSNL, another state-owned telecom operator, also started 3G services. MTNL has wide 3G coverage over two metros, Delhi and Mumbai. BSNL has 3G coverage in all circles except Mumbai and Delhi. Currently BSNL has 3G coverage in more than 800 cities of India, and offers free roaming in Delhi and Mumbai using MTNL's network.

India completed a 3G airwave (GSM) auction for private operators and allocated 3G airwaves in September 2010 to the winners. Aircel, Airtel, Idea Cellular, Reliance (GSM), S Tel, Tata Teleservices (Tata Docomo) and Vodafone won licenses for 3G services. No operator won a pan-India 3G license.

Tata Docomo rolled out 3G services in November 2010, becoming the first private operator to roll out 3G services. Reliance Communications also rolled out 3G services in December 2010 in Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Chandigarh. In Q1 of 2011 Airtel, Aircel, Idea and Vodafone rolled out their 3G services in India. S Tel has not rolled out 3G services to date.[citation needed]

However Airtel had become the first Indian operator to launch commercial LTE services in the country, starting from Kolkata. Later others launched their 4G services in the country.[citation needed]
