After the recent launches in Pune and Indore, Airtel has launched ‘V-Fiber’ on home broadband in Bhopal, announces a release from the company. V-Fiber will deliver speeds of up to 100 Mbps over Airtel’s existing broadband enabling fast HD video streaming, heavy file downloads, etc. over Wi-Fi.
‘V-Fiber’ is based on Vectorization, a European technology and is claimed to be ‘green’. Airtel is said to be the first operator in India to deploy Vectorization technology. The upgrade to V-Fiber doesn’t require any new wiring, drilling etc. on the customer’s premises. Instead, the modem will be upgraded to V-Fiber.
Commenting on the V-Fiber launch in Bhopal, Dharmender Khajuria, CEO – Madhya Pradesh & Chhattisgarh, Bharti Airtel said, “We are delighted to bring ‘V-Fiber’ to our customers in Bhopal, as part of our endeavor to deliver the best-in-class broadband experience to users. With ‘V-Fiber’, we are all set to offer an altogether transformed experience on our future-ready network to the digitally savvy homes. This solution offers a very quick and convenient upgrade to the customer. Our innovative myHome Rewards program and free voice calling facility will certainly add to the delight of Bhopal’s Digital Homes. We invite all our customers in the city to experience our superfast broadband speeds.”
The existing Airtel customers can upgrade to ‘V-Fiber’ at no extra monthly cost. The plans start at Rs. 999. New customers availing the upgrade can get three months unlimited offer. In case, if the customer is not happy with the service, Airtel will refund the activation charges and the amount will be adjusted in the next bill cycle.
Airtel is also providing a ‘myHome Rewards’ program, under which the customer can 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. This reward program is available to both existing and new customers of postpaid mobile and DTH connections.
