Telecom major Airtel will open 17,000 more rural outlets by March, reports a financial daily. “Post the pilot project in Rajasthan, we have established 3,000 such centres in the last couple of months. This will be expanded to 20,000 by March, with an aim to have one such centre in every village” said Sanjay Kapoor, Bharti Airtel’s president for mobility, to The Economic Times.
According to Kapoor, the rural space is very important for the company as two-third of the new additions (of mobile phones) is expected to come from this segment from next year onwards.
