Airtel today announced launch of ‘V-Fiber’ in Mumbai. ‘V-Fiber’ is based on Vectorization – Europe’s No. 1 fixed broadband technology – and will deliver speeds of up to 100 Mbps over Airtel’s existing broadband footprint in the city.
‘V-Fiber’ is a green technology and there is no new wiring, drilling etc. required at an existing customer’s premises. One simply needs to upgrade to a new ‘V-Fiber’ modem.
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 modem charges and the amount will be adjusted in the next bill cycle. New customers can choose exciting V-Fiber plans starting from Rs. 899 and can subsequently avail the 3 months unlimited offer.
Sameer Batra, Chief Executive Officer – Mumbai, Bharti Airtel said, “We are delighted to bring ‘V-Fiber’ to our customers in Mumbai, 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 Mumbai’s Digital Homes.”

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.
