After Idea, now Airtel to augment POIs -Jio breathes sigh of relief

By September 13th, 2016 AT 7:27 PM

Airtel,  today said that following its bilateral discussions with Reliance Jio, it will provide additional PoIs to Jio which will be more than adequate to serve over 15 million customers. Airtel has been providing PoIs to Jio, well ahead of the commencement of its commercial operations.


With the latest augmentation, the total number of PoIs will become 3 times the present number of PoIs. Based on the current traffic pattern with all other operators, this capacity is sufficient to serve over 15 million customers, which is significantly higher than Jio’s existing customer base.

Having agreed to release the PoIs, Airtel said it would also need to take cognizance of the massive asymmetry in the volume of traffic between the two networks and ensure that the quality of service for Airtel customers is not impacted.

Airtel expressed hope that the TRAI will look into the issue of asymmetric traffic on an urgent basis and ensure that massive volumes of free calls terminating on Airtel’s network do not adversely impact its network.
