NEW DELHI, INDIA: Aircel, a joint venture between between Malaysia's Maxis Communications and Apollo Hospital, announced that it would invest $10 billion for rolling out services in the country's 23 telecom circles.

Gurdeep Singh, chief operating officer, Aircel, said: "About $5 billion have been spent so far. We are also prepared for the 3G bid as we already have 3G services in Malaysia." He was speaking at the launch of Aircel's GSM mobile services in Delhi, recently. Aircel had opened 25 exclusive stores in the city and an equal number of self-help kiosks.

The company would move to (eastern and western) Uttar Pradesh for the next launch of its services, followed by the Maharashtra circle.

"To address the needs of SMEs and professionals, we will offer a user-friendly recharge scheme that will enable them make calls and send messages absolutely free of cost across our local network and make STD calls at 50 paise from one Aircel to another,' Singh added.

In addition, the subscribers would be able to avail free incoming calls while roaming on Aircel networks. They can make local calls to other networks at 50 paise and long distance calls at Re.1, he added.

The company would also launch 'Youth of Delhi' plan that would offer services like unlimited song change, free talk time for local calls at night, group messaging at 1 paisa, group calling at 25 paise and calls to the US and Canada at Rs.2 per minute.
