He said nearly 3,100 and 2,300 BTSes would be operational in RoB (Rest of Bengal) and Kolkata circles, respectively after additions to the existing infrastructure by December this year. Kaul said Aircel would also roll out 4G services in RoB by December.

He declined to comment about Kolkata circle where it does not hold 4G spectrum. Vodafone would launch the services from December in the circle along with Airtel which is already offering it. Data traffic contributed 15 per cent to Aircel's overall revenue, which is projected to go up to 20 per cent in the next few years.
