Bharti Airtel Boosts 4G Network in Haryana With Deployment of LTE Technology on 2100 MHz Band

Bharti Airtel has made a significant move to boost its 4G network capacity in Haryana by deploying 2,100 MHz spectrum

Highlights
  • The telco also has 2300 Mhz (TD LTE), 2100 Mhz (LTE 2100), and 1800 Mhz (FD LTE) spectrum in the state
  • Bharti Airtel has also closed in a large ARPU gap with the rival telco, Reliance Jio

Bharti Airtel has made another stride in its network development by upgrading its 4G network in Haryana with the deployment of LTE 2100 technology which is supposed to enhance the network experience for its smartphone consumers significantly. It is very well known that the 3G customer base is declining in India, and more and more subscribers are upgrading to 4G smartphones. The rollout of the 4G network in the premium 2100 MHz spectrum band will allow Airtel to provide more 4G capacity to the customers and the telco will also be able to drive more voice traffic for its customers in the Haryana region.

Bharti Airtel Accumulates Premium Spectrum Bands in Haryana

With the rollout of this new 4G network on the 2,100MHz spectrum band, Airtel now has a robust 4G presence in the state with 2300 Mhz (TD LTE), 2100 Mhz (LTE 2100), and 1800 Mhz (FD LTE) to offer world-class 4G services to customers. Given the increase in its capacity with 2100 Mhz spectrum, Airtel smartphone customers will enjoy improved 4G throughputs, which shall result in enhanced customer experience.

On this new development, Manu Sood, Hub CEO- Upper North, Bharti Airtel said, “In our continuous endeavour to deliver best-in-class network experience to our customers, the deployment of LTE 2100 in Haryana will further augment Airtel 4G quality and experience. LTE 2100 will further boost the network capacity and significantly improve outdoor coverage, especially during intracity/ intercity transit for 4G smartphone customers.”

He further added, “LTE 2100 shall also add stimulus to increasing VoLTE traffic volume with better VoLTE propagation and add to our efforts to provide a superior network experience. We will continue to invest aggressively in the deployment of latest network technologies to delight our customers.”

Airtel Closing in ARPU Gap With Reliance Jio

Airtel in its release also noted that currently it serves over 3.8 million customers in Haryana and has deployed advanced network technologies and tools such as 4G Advanced and Carrier Aggregation to step up high-speed network capacity and coverage.  The telco also said that it is committed to further invest in its network under its Project Leap program.

In the last few months, Airtel has upped its efforts to close the gap with the rival telecom operators. The Sunil Bharti Mittal led telco has already announced that it will be investing in network capacity and increasing coverage to compete with the telecom operators. The telecom operator has also been able to come very close to the ARPU levels of Reliance Jio, and the estimations have suggested that the ARPU of Bharti Airtel could be Rs 125 which is in proximity to Rs 126.6, the current ARPU level of the Mukesh Ambani led telecom operator, Reliance Jio.
