Digital infrastructure provider Summit Digitel on Monday announced a pact with Bharti under which the telecom operator will utilise Summit Digitel's tower infrastructure as part of its wireless network rollouts.

"It is our commitment to provide outstanding services to that result in uninterrupted service across the entire nation," Joshi added.

"We are pleased to partner with Summit Digitel and leverage their passive infrastructure as we expand our high-speed networks across the country," Bharti Airtel's Chief Technology Officer Randeep Sekhon said.
