Under Project Leap, Airtel rolls out largest 3G network in Odisha

Telecom operator Bharti Airtel has deployed the largest 3G network in Odisha under the ‘Project Leap’, the recently launched Rs 60,000-crore network transformation program by the company.


The company has rolled out 1,800 3G sites in Odisha, thus covering 109 census towns in the region and has also strengthened its existing network of more than 5,000 2G sites. It has added 8,564 kms of high fiber optic cable and 234 2G sites this year.
Besides, it has also introduced 413 new 4G sites across seven towns in Odisha (namely Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Puri, Rourkela, Balasore, Sambalpur and Barhampur).

Ravindra Singh Negi, CEO, West Bengal and Odisha, Bharti Airtel, said, “As the telecom market leader in Odisha, it is our constant endeavor to consistently innovate and make investments that help us move closer to our vision of delivering a seamless network experience for our customers. In line with “Project Leap”, we have heavily invested in strengthening our network capabilities and are looking forward to delivering a transformed network experience for our customers here”.

Airtel’s network transformation program is currently being implemented across the country. Recently, the company has launched a website www.airtel.in/leap for the latest updates on its network modernization drive.
