"We already have 4G technology in our network. Last week in Varansi, we launched 4G on very very narrow band," Telenor CEO Sigve Brekke said at the Mobile World Congress here.

The launch in Varansi is on pilot basis and depending on the outcome of the project, it will be extended to other cities, he said.

Brekke added that in the coming six months, the commercial launch will take place in 5-8 cities across all the service areas it operates in. Telenor has operations in 6 telecom circles and has over 4.7 crore customers.

Leading telecom operators including Bharti Airtel, Vodafone and Idea Cellular have already launched 4G services. Besides, Reliance Jio Infocomm has also announced plans to launch the high speed data service later this year.
