Bharti Airtel has come up with yet another offer this festive season. After providing free Rs 51 Amazon Gift Card to its subscribers, Airtel is now offering Rs 2,000 cashback for literally doing nothing. Yes, you heard it right. This festive season, if you purchase a new 4G smartphone from anywhere and insert your Airtel 4G SIM card on the new smartphone, then you’ll get Rs 2,000 cashback from Airtel.

Of course, Airtel has launched this new scheme under its biggest digital programme- Airtel Thanks.


Airtel Festive 4G Smartphone Offer: Details Explained

Band 8(900 mhz) on 4G is live on airtel in Bangalore. Speeds are pathetic as CA is not available yet on band 8 yet…

For whatever unknown reason I am seeing Idea without CA give similar speeds as Airtel with CA. Dunno what’s going on?

@kaushik what is happening is that Vodafone has MCN at ahmedabad, Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata, lucknow & Mumbai and idea only has in Mumbai, hence post merger both company MCN are merged hence the congestion and bad latency. VIL is working to increase the capacity but still it is not at par with jio and airtel which have multiple MCN in various cities. So congestion is at MCN level and not at tower level. MCN is media convergence node. No matter how much CA , spectrum one operator put if internet backhaul is congested then you will never get speed…

@CM Ji, just wondering whether you answered his query or just exploited an opportunity to reply?

Also, may be MCN is also a reason but it cannot be considered as the same case with every BTS that faces congestion. Isn’t it?

He was saying Idea is giving better speed than Airtel even without CA
