Aircel, one of India’s leading innovative telecom service providers, today announced an aggressive expansion plan to create a robust 3G network Kolkata. The company will be adding close to 350 new 3G sites by end 2015, on the back of which, it expects to welcome more than two lakh customers to the Aircel family, enabling them to enjoy a data speed of up to 21 Mbps. On this occasion, Aircel also launched a special 3G data recharge pack of Rs. 175 that would assure a host of free assured benefits during the upcoming Durga Puja.
To usher in the festive season, Aircel’s special 3G data recharge of Rs. 175 would offer customers assured free benefits such as Rs. 100 of talk time, 200 minutes of Aircel to Aircel calling, 250 local SMS, 500 MB 3G data or extra validity of 30 days. This exciting benefit, when coupled with Aircel’s robust network will provide an uninterrupted experience to customers.
Sanjeev Garg, Business Head – Kolkata and RoWB, Aircel said, “The population of 3G users that looks for an uninterrupted experience is dramatically increasing, especially as mobile handsets are increasingly being used for varied purposes. We have been working tirelessly to live up to this expectation of our customers and hence, we’ve redoubled our efforts in expanding our 3G network all across Kolkata. We are adding 346 3G sites in Kolkata to build a robust 3G network that will immensely help us serve our customers better. We have witnessed a significant uptake in 3G subscriber growth and our focus remains in offering a strong network to our valued subscribers.”
He added, “We always strive to offer innovative and the best value-for-money products and services, and our new recharge pack of Rs. 175 is an endeavor to ‘do a little extra’ for our valued customers during the festive season.”
