Talking about broadband wireless access (BWA) services, Singh said the high speed internet services will be launched by end of this year.

He declined to comment on investment the company will pump in for marketing of 3G and BWA services.

Aircel won 3G spectrum in 13 circles in auction for Rs Rs 6499.46 crore and BWA spectrum in eight circles for Rs 3,438.01 crore.source
