    Bali said that an investment of around Rs 550 crore is expected to be pumped in by end of this fiscal to roll out the 4G services in the identified circles. "Our services will be launched on 1800 MHz band, which is more feasible for 4G rollout," he said, adding the customers will get high-speed connectivity.
