Airtel to launch 4G in Kochi, Operator asks people to upgrade SIM for FREE

Airtel subscribers at Kochi in Kerala have been receiving messages from the operator stating an opportunity to upgrade their mobile connections to 4G SIM for FREE. The message looks like an indication that the operator has launched 4G in the area.


To add to it, no documents are required to be submitted for this upgrading. Also, the subscribers can get the SIM card delivered to their houses, if sent a request via message. The data plans and balances will be carried forward to the new connection.

Earlier in April 2012, Airtel had launched India’s first 4G services in Kolkata. Airtel’s 4G services are now available across India including recently launched Ambala (City and Cantt.),Karnal, Yamunanagar, Hisar, Rohtak, Nasik, Nagpur, Aurangabad, Mangaluru, Bengaluru, Pune, Chandigarh, Mohali, Panchkula, Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Amritsar, Hoshiarpur, Phagwara, Kapurthala, Moga, Bathinda and Patiala. Further, 4G trials have been launched for existing Airtel customers in Delhi, Hyderabad, Vizag, Madhurai, Chennai, Coimbatore and Mumbai.

airtel knows how to advertise.
when you go to their office, they donot know how to do the demo on 4g.
they donot have a smart phone with 4g facility even.
when you recharge your 4g sim supplied by them already, the 4g data plan doesnot work.they said it will take 4 hrs to start working.

who asked them to launch it without making any ample preparations? tripunithura
