Bharti Airtel has recently launched its V-Fiber super fast broadband service in the country. Currently, it is only available in Chennai but Airtel has promised to roll out the service to 87 more cities in the near future.
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).
Here’s everything you need to know about the service.
Essentially, V-Fiber is a combination of Vectorization and fiber technology aimed at delivering high speeds of up to 100Mbps. It’s worth mentioning the fact that Airtel is the first telecom operator in the country to deploy Vectorization.
How to subscribe to Airtel V-Fiber service
Subscribing for Airtel’s new V-Fiber service is a pretty straight-forward affair. If you’re an existing Airtel broadband customer, all you have to do is to purchase the new modem to get a free upgrade to V-Fiber. The best part about this is the fact that you won’t have to pay any additional rental charges.
