Bharti Airtel plans for massive network expansion in Gujarat

Bharti Airtel is planning for massive network roll-out in FY 2018-19 to further expand its high speed mobile data footprint across the state of Gujarat. As a part of its network expansion program - Project LEAP, the company plans to add more than 6000 new sites in FY 2018-19, along with the deployment of an additional 2000 KMs of optic fiber across Gujarat.

This network expansion will follow the massive ramp up of Airtel's network in FY 2017-18 which witnessed over 6600 new sites being deployed across Gujarat, extending Airtel's mobile broadband footprint in the State to 20000 towns & villages which significantly improved customer's user experience.

With this roll-out, the number of Airtel's mobile sites in Gujarat would go up by 25% to 29,000, further enhancing the network speeds and voice quality. The addition of fresh optic fiber would extend Airtel's fiber backbone to 13,800 KMs, supporting the growth of high speed data services in the region.

Bharti Airtel is a leading integrated telecommunications company with operations across Asia and Africa.
