The news is a bit confusing as 4G was launched months back (as others pointed out). But yes a major change happened today which is support of 4G on 1800 band. I have a Nexus 5 and 4G never worked on it in past in Haryana but since I have 4G sim, it did work in Delhi, Mumbai and other circles.

Now from today it’s working on my nexus 5 as well in Haryana. So it’s not about the launch of 4G, but about the support of 1800 band (besides 2300 which was there in past).
