Airtel today announced launch of ‘V-Fiber’ in Indore, to offer superfast broadband to its customers which will deliver speeds of up to 100 Mbps over Airtel’s existing broadband footprint in the city. This launch is an important milestone in Airtel’s journey, which commenced its fixedline operations from Indore in 1998.
Airtel is the first operator in India to deploy Vectorization technology, which turbo charges the last mile copper with advanced noise elimination technology (just like in audio systems) to deliver superfast data speeds. With V-Fiber, Airtel has brought fiber into colonies & neighborhoods and upgraded exchanges.
Dharmender Khajuria, CEO – Madhya Pradesh & Chhattisgarh, Bharti Airtel said, “We are delighted to bring ‘V-Fiber’ to our customers in Indore, as part of our endeavour to deliver 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 Indore’s Digital Homes. We invite all our customers in the city to experience our superfast broadband speeds.”
Existing Airtel broadband customers can upgrade to ‘V-Fiber’ speeds to enjoy superfast data speeds at no extra monthly cost. If they are not happy with the service within one month, Airtel will refund the activation charges and the amount will be adjusted in the next bill cycle. New customers can avail the 3 month unlimited offer and subsequently choose exciting V-Fiber plans starting from Rs. 999.
Airtel V-Fiber deployment is a part of Airtel’s nationwide network transformation initiative – Project Leap started last year. Under the initiative, Airtel is also augmenting its 550,000 Kms of domestic & international fiber/submarine cable capacity in order to drive down latency, improve customer experience and serve the growing demand of data services in years to come. The Company is also increasing caching of content at its data centres to improve data experience for customers.
Airtel also offers unlimited free voice calling for all its 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.
