Idea Cellular Ltd will invest around Rs 200 crore in the Assam circle this fiscal. The company plans to scale up investment by another Rs 100 crore over the next three years. Idea announced the launch of its 2.75G EDGE-enabled GSM network in Assam on Monday.

With this launch, mobile services will be available in 13 districts of Assam, namely Barpeta, Bongaigaon, Cachar, Dibrugarh, Jorhat, Kamrup, Karbi Anglong, Kokrajhar, Nagaon, Nalbari, Sibsagar, Sonitpur and Tinsukia. Director (operations), Idea Cellular Ltd, Ambrish P. Jain, who was in Guwahati, said: "Idea has launched its services in Assam which has a population base of 32 million and a low mobile teledensity of 22%. Idea's services in the remaining circle of North East, comprising Nagaland, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Tripura and Arunachal Pradesh, will be launched later this year."

The mobile operator will double its network to 500 cell sites to cover 19 districts, including 56 major towns and over 1,400 villages in Assam, by March 2010. Idea will also set up a network of 450 cell sites in the North East by March 2010.
