Idea Cellular , India's No. 6 mobile phone operator, said on Wednesday it has commissioned Nokia Siemens Network (NSN) to build and manage its 3G network in four telecom zones and supply equipment.

Under the contract, NSN will deploy its base stations, provide network implementation, project management, care and maintenance services, and give support to the operator in managing its 3G network.

Idea did not disclose the financial details of the deal.

Idea spent $1.3 billion this year to acquire 3G wireless radio spectrum in 11 of India's 22 telecoms zones, and has earlier said it would spend $675 million over the next 12 to 15 months to rollout the premium services.
