Bharti Airtel has now announced its massive network expansion plans for FY 2018-19 in Rajasthan. With this new expansion plans, Airtel is looking to improve its high-speed mobile data footprint in Rajasthan. Under its network expansion program, Project Leap, Airtel promised to add more than 9000 new sites in FY 2018-19, along with the addition of more than 4150 kms of optic fibre in Rajasthan. Airtel wants to step up the 4G data

capacities and take the services into rural and unconnected areas with this planned network expansion. For the unaware, Airtel deployed more than 6800 new sites in FY 2017-18 and this financial year, it’s going to add even more mobile sites.

The expansion plan for FY 2018-19 follows a fruitful FY 2017-18 which saw more than 6800 new sites being deployed and more than 3000 kms of optic fibre being rolled out in Rajasthan, extending its mobile broadband footprint to 44,200 towns and villages.

Hemanth Kumar Guruswamy, Chief Executive Officer – Rajasthan, Bharti Airtel Ltd, adds, “At Airtel, we remain committed to offering the best network experience to our customers and our massive investments in upping network strength and deploying latest technologies just reinforces that. We will continue to focus and invest heavily in our network to offer enhanced speeds and coverage to our customers in Rajasthan.”

Once this network expansion program in Rajasthan completes, Airtel’s mobile sites in the state would go up by 29% to 33,000, which further enhances the data speeds and voice qualities. The addition of fresh optic fibre would extend the company’s fibre backbone to 23,100 kms, supporting the growth of high-speed data services in the region.

Airtel is currently the leading telecom operator in India with over 340 million subscribers under its belt. The telco has recently expanded its VoLTE (Voice over LTE) services to Rajasthan, allowing users to experience HD voice calls in the state. Airtel already offers 4G data services in Rajasthan.
