Airtel subsidiary approaches DoT for 4G voice call

Telecom major Bharti Airtel’s subsidiary Wireless Business Services has approached the DoT for allocation of mobile numbers to start testing of voice call services on 4G network in four service areas, including Delhi and Mumbai.

“We intend to test voice services on our LTE (4G) network being deployed at Delhi, Mumbai, Haryana and Kerala service areas for which numbering is required,” Wireless Business Services said in a letter to the DoT, as per sources.

The company has requested DoT to allocate “25,000 numbers out of mobile number series in each service area” for testing of voice service, sources said.

Wireless Business Services has won BWA spectrum, that can be used for 4G services, in four circles of Delhi, Mumbai, Haryana and Kerala. Airtel holds 51 per cent stake in the company which was initially launched by chip maker Qualcomm.
