Bharti Airtel Reportedly In Discussions To Buy Aircel's 4G Spectrum

Bharti Airtel Limited (BSE:532454) has held initial talks with Aircel Limited to buy its 4G airwaves in the 2300 Mhz band, as per three people familiar with the matter. Airtel denied of any such discussions and Aircel said it doesn't comment on market speculation. Some discussions have happened between very senior management of both the companies," one of the people told Economic Times. "But lots of things need to be sorted out like the valuations, but importantly, the deal may fall foul of the spectrum cap rules in two circles — Odisha and Andhra Pradesh." A second person said the thought process within Airtel is to "beef up as much spectrum as it can through spectrum trading and auctions". He noted that after buying Qualcomm's 4G airwaves in four circles, Airtel recently bought Augere Wireless, which owned 4G airwaves in Chhattisgarh-Madhya Pradesh circle.
