Norway-based Telenor’s India unit has launched its 4G services for its customers in the Gujarat circle, following the launch of 4G services in Varanasi, Agra, Vishakhapatnam and Amravati earlier this year.


Telenor, which currently provides mobile services in UP (West), UP (East), Bihar (including Jharkhand), Andhra Pradesh (including Telangana), Maharashtra and Gujarat, has rolled out 4G data and voice packs for its customers in Gujarat’s Anand district.Telenor India is also offering cash back of 10% on every recharge of Rs 120 and above to all of its customers.

“Introducing the speediest internet services in 4G! Anand, now experience high quality and superfast 4G speed only with Telenor,” according to the company’s website.

The cheapest data pack is priced at Rs 11, which comes with a validity of a day and offers 100 MB 4G data usage. Post the expiry of the pack, a customer will be charged 4P/20KB tariff.

Under Rs 159 pack, Telenor India is providing 1 GB of free data and all local and STD calls at 25 paisa per minute. This pack comes with a validity of 28 days. Under Rs 229 pack, Telenor India is providing 3 GB of free data and all local and STD calls at 25 paisa per minute. This pack too comes with a validity of 28 days.

In February 2016, Telenor had announced its plan to launch 4G services in 5-8 cities in India within 6 months. The provider was also in talks with other operators to increase its spectrum holding through trading.

Telenor is using “Lean GSM” technology from Chinese telecom gear maker Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd, which also helped it to modernize about 25,000 basestations. The telco had awarded Rs 1,240 crore contract to Huawei for modernising all its 25,000 mobile base station in six telecom circles where it operates.

Telenor also hopes to reduce energy consumption as a result of this deployment.
