Bharti Airtel, India's largest telecommunications carrier, has raised its stake to 51 per cent in a wireless broadband venture founded by Qualcomm Inc, the Indian company said on Thursday.

Bharti Airtel, which last year agreed to buy a 49 per cent stake in Qualcomm's India 4G broadband venture, did not say how much it paid for the additional 2 per cent stake.
