With launch of its ultra affordable 4G service in Visakhapatnam, Telenor has locked horns with incumbent operators who are currently expanding their 4G network. However, Telenor 4G service operating on narrow-band LTE will suffer from poor quality of service and may not be able to match 4G speeds provided by incumbent operators who use at least 5 MHz spectrum for 4G. Affordable 4G service seems to be a last resort for Telenor to survive in data driven telecom market.
