The acquisition gives Bharti Airtel a total customer base of million, including million subscribers it had in India at the end of April. A challenge for Bharti Airtel will be to integrate the operations of Zain Africa in all 15 countries, which currently operate largely as stand-alone units, said Kamlesh Bhatia , a principal research analyst at Gartner. A new investment that is coming up for the company is the roll out of 3G services once spectrum is allotted to it by the government by September this year. By expanding its business outside the country, Bharti Airtel can in the long term benefit from economies of scale, including getting better deals from suppliers, Bhatia said.
