A R Rahman Composes Jingle for Airtel 3G Phone Service To Be Launched In India

Calcutta, Nov 28, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) Internationally renowned Indian cinema music composer A R Rahman has composed the jingle of the latest video ad for Airtel 3G service in India being launched by the end of this year.

The ad features a street-dancer on a walkway very much like any city in the industrialized world dancing to a foot-tapping ad song, and a smart phone device at the end. The references in the ad to "Hamari Duniya" (i.e. "our world") is a bit disconnected from the context of an Indian ad for a service in India.

The Chairman and managing director of Bharti Airtel at a press conference said, “We will price our 3G services in a way so as to balance it to the investments that we have made in acquiring the spectrum and building infrastructure. Tariffs will be affordable.”

He also added that the prices of the auctions were high, yet they will be able to give affordable tariffs. Earlier in August, the Chief Executive officer for the South Asia regions of Bharti Airtel, Mr Sanjay Kapoor said that the 3G costs may be higher due to the expensive bids.

“The bid prices have taken away the possibility of providing these services at cheap prices. Data services on 3G will also not come at throwaway prices,” he had said.

Apart from operating in 19 countries, Airtel provides 3G in eight countries in Africa. The spectrum charges are much higher in Africa. Airtel already offers 3G in 8 countries of Africa out of 16, and the rest of the 8 will have the 3G service soon.

Airtel 3G Tariff announced by Bharti Airtel India and the 3G services will be affordable for its users. The services will commercially start in 13 circles, before the end of this year. Airtel also changed their logo and Airtel has a new logo.

It will take minimum 6 months to enjoy full freedom of 3G but if you are very eager to use 3G data card then we suggest you to try MTNL or BSNL 3G data card.
