The telecom sector is already witnessing big increase in demand for high speed data and availability of this additional spectrum will further spur investments from operators towards data rollouts across the country, he said.

The income from operation of Bharti Infratel increased by 9 percent to Rs 1,496.3 crore in the reported quarter from Rs 1,372.6 crore in the same period a year ago.
