Airtel today announced the commercial launch of its high speed 4G services (also called LTE) in Pondicherry.

On 6th August 2015, Airtel announced that its 4G services were available in 296 towns across India. Prior to that, Airtel had successfully conducted trials of its 4G services in select cities and leveraged feedback from customers towards strengthening its service experience.
