Bharti Airtel Limited, today launched 4G trials exclusively for its customers in Delhi NCR. Airtel’s 4G services in the National Capital Region are the first in India to leverage an integrated FD and TD network which will deliver the fastest 4G experience and superior network coverage.

As part of the trial offer, Airtel customers across Delhi NCR can now avail a complimentary upgrade to Airtel 4G at 3G prices and experience blazing Airtel 4G speeds. The company will assimilate valuable customer feedback from these early adopters and leverage the initial market response towards strengthening its service experience – thus building a world-class 4G network infrastructure for the city.

i was in Delhi today and got a chance to test Airtel 4g near old delhi railway station. signals were good and stable but downlink speed was only 14mbps max on while idea 3g in Aligarh is far better than airtel 4g with a speed of more than 16mbps everytime. it was quite frustrating. they are claiming a speed more than 30mbps while this is blow 3g. LOL. by the way, good luck airtel. jio is gonna ruin you.
