He said, 'We are not spending almost anything on 3G. We are of the view that in the next three to four years, the 3G network may be closed.

Bharti Airtel Managing Director said that the company is investing in 4G technology to increase the network's data capacity. The company will use 2100 Mhz band used for 3G services for 4G services.
