外文标题：Aircel ties up with ZTE for 4G services
NEW DELHI: Chinese telecom equipment maker ZTE Corp's local arm will deploy Indian telecom service provider Aircel's 4G networks in Tamil Nadu, the companies said in a joint statement on Monday.
"In the initial phase of our rollout, we aim to offer our customers some of the highest data speeds in the country — in excess of 65 Mbps," ZTE India chief executive Xu Dejun, said in the statement. Aircel's chief marketing officer Anupam Vasudev added that the company was betting on data being the driver of future growth for the company and the sector.
The huge demand for internet-enabled devices such as smartphones and tablets among the young population, along with increase in consumption of data on internet, and rising demand for content are some of the factors fuelling the exponential growth in data, he added.
Once it launches commercial operations, Aircel could become the second company after Bharti Airtel, India's number one telco, to launch ultra-high speed 4G services in India. However, neither Aircel nor ZTE gave a timeline for launch of the 4G services for customers. They also didn't elaborate on future deployment plans for the technology.
Aircel has good connectivity and when you spend more money you should make sure it reached most part of the country.. Data is one way of extending your market these days.

ZTE is a trojan horse, just like Huawei. this deal is part of the economic war against India. They will cripple the indian economy in case of a large scale military conflict.
Why delhi always get 3g or 4g late
Let the aircel launch 4g asap but at the same time I hate chinese technology.
Huwei the Chinese telecom equipment manufacturer allegedly hacked BSNL network..now Chinese ZTE is trusted??? Now Chinese companies can create new brand names and sell the same product to India..
