Bharti Airtel has expanded its Xstream Fiber services to multiple cities across India including Ajmer, Bundi and Rohtak. The operator in early 2020 had said that its Xstream Fiber services would be “launching soon” in over 25 cities across India. Airtel said that its Xstream Fiber services would be launching by the end of April in certain cities with the company initially targeting June 1 to launch its services across all the listed places. However, the company pushed back its launch plans potentially due to the COVID-19 lockdown. In late June and early July, the company had highlighted that its Xstream Fiber services were launched in over 10 cities across India.
The company has now launched its Xstream Fiber services in six cities including Ajmer, Bhilwara, Bundi, Ghazipur, Kota and Rohtak. It has to be noted that the six cities were part of the initial list of 25 cities where the company highlighted that its Xstream Fiber services would be “launching soon.”
Airtel on its website has listed all the four pan-India plans in the six new cities where it now offers the Xstream Fiber services. The four plans include Basic, Entertainment, Premium and the VIP plan. Crucially, the six cities including Ajmer are not provided the landline services which indicates that Airtel has launched its Xstream Fiber services through the franchise tie-up with an Local Cable Operator (LCO).
It has to be noted that the Basic plan enables users to browse up to 100 Mbps till 150GB for Rs 799 per month. The Entertainment plan priced at Rs 999 per month enables users to browse up to 200 Mbps speed till 300GB. Further, the Premium plan priced at Rs 1499 enables users to browse up to 300 Mbps speed till 500GB while the VIP plan enables users to browse at 1Gbps speed for Rs 3999 per month.
The company also offers one year complimentary access to Airtel Xstream with all its Xstream Fiber plans while access to Amazon Prime is offered on Entertainment, Premium and VIP plans.
The company has listed several other cities with an “launching soon” tag including Akola, Amaravati, Bahraich, Barabanki, Bikaner, Chandauli, Chandrapur, Davanagere, Dharamshala, Dhule, Hosur, Jalgaon, Jhunjhunu, Latur and Muzzafarnagar.
Further, the company highlighted that cities including Nanded, Ramanathapuram, Ratnagiri, Satara, Solapur, Sonbhadra, Tirupati, Udaipur would also soon receive Airtel Xstream Fiber services.
