Bharti Airtel, India's largest telecommunications services provider, has rolled out an upgraded state-of-the-art 4G network across Maharashtra and Goa to deliver best-in-class mobile broadband experience to customers, with faster data speeds and better indoor and outdoor coverage. The company has also expanded its 4G footprint across Maharashtra and Goa to over 400 towns. Customers across these towns can enjoy mobile broadband on the go with Airtel 4G and access uninterrupted HD video streaming, superfast uploading and downloading of movies, music and images. Airtel 4G is available on a range of smart devices including mobile phones, 4G MiFi and dongles with value-for-money pre-paid and post-paid plans and a free SIM upgrade. Bharti Airtel has been consistently rated as India's fastest 4G network.
As part of network roll-out, the Company has deployed fresh 4G network capacity in the 1800 MHz spectrum band (using FD LTE technology standard) to supplement existing 4G capacity in the 2300 MHz spectrum band (using TD LTE technology standard). With this, Maharashtra and Goa join a select group of States in India to enjoy the power of an integrated 4G network using TD and FD carriers. The combination of TD LTE and FD LTE significantly boosts network capacity and delivers a superior mobile broadband experience to customers across Maharashtra and Goa through better network coverage and data speeds. To avail the complimentary upgrade to Airtel 4G, existing Airtel customers with 4G ready mobile devices can walk into their nearest Airtel Store and switch to a 4G SIM and get one-time free 4G data up to 10 GB.
