Telecom service provider Bharti Airtel on Wednesday said the government has allotted additional spectrum to the company in five telecom circles in the country.
The five circles are West Bengal, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh (west), Assam and Haryana.
"We have received a formal communication from the Department of Telecom (DoT) for the allotment of additional spectrum to the company in five circles," Bharti Airtel President and CEO Manoj Kohli told reporters in New Delhi.
The company had applied for additional spectrum in 10 telecom circles across the country. The other circles, where the company is still awaiting the allotment of additional spectrum are Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Bihar and Tamil Nadu.
Kohli said they are expecting to get additional spectrum in the rest of five circles in a couple of months.
