Bharti Airtel has introduced ‘V-Fiber’ for its fixed broadband, a technology capable of delivering speeds of up to 100 Mbps. Airtel is the first operator in India to deploy Vectorization.
“‘V-Fiber’ will transform the home broadband for Airtel customers with consistently super fast data speeds and enable HD video streaming, heavy file downloads, and uploads in a multi-device environment (over Wi-Fi),” said a release from the company. To experience the benefits of ‘V-Fiber’, the customers need to upgrade to a new modem.
The customers can upgrade to ‘V-Fiber’ speeds with their current plan and there will be no extra monthly cost involved. For an assurance, Airtel promises to refund the modem charges (the amount will be adjusted in the next bill cycle), if the customer is not happy with the new ‘V-Fiber’ technology. The new customers will get unlimited three months trial offer.
Commenting on the ‘V-Fiber’ technology, Ajai Puri, Director – Operations, Bharti Airtel said, “India is witnessing an explosive growth in data usage and a lot of in-home data consumption is happening over fixed broadband that offers consistent speeds. Airtel has always innovated ahead of the curve and offered its customers best-in-class broadband technology and experience.”
“With ‘V-Fiber’ and our national optic fiber backbone, we are all set to offer a future-ready network for tomorrow’s digitally connected homes. This solution, besides reducing our carbon footprint, offers a very quick and convenient upgrade to the customer. We are also delighted to launch our innovative myHome Rewards and unlimited free voice calling facility for our customers,” he added.
From today, the offering is live in Chennai and it will be rolled out across other networks in the coming weeks.
Airtel Unlimited Free Voice Calling
As a launch offer, Airtel also offers unlimited free voice calling for all broadband customers. “The facility is now available across broadband plans and customers can make unlimited free voice calls to any network across the country at no extra cost,” Airtel said in a statement released today.

Under this, customers get free additional data benefit of 5GB per month for every other Airtel service connection – postpaid mobile or digital TV (DTH) – within the home/family. Both existing, as well as new Airtel postpaid mobile and digital TV connections, can avail this. To say, Airtel broadband home with two Airtel postpaid mobiles and one Airtel digital TV connection can get 15 GB free additional data to their broadband account every month.
