Bharti Airtel Launches 4G Services in Remote Hayuliang Area of Arunachal Pradesh

Telecom operator Bharti Airtel Thursday said it has rolled out its latest 4G services in the remote Hayuliang area in Anjaw district of Arunachal Pradesh to expand operations. Customers in 100 villages across the Hayuliang region will be able to enjoy fast data experience on the Airtel network, the company said in a statement. “Airtel plans to gradually expand its 4G services to other parts of the district. The rollout, which is part of Project Leap Airtel’s network transformation initiative, is a testament to the company’s network execution capabilities,” it added, according to PTI.


The company’s network teams and partners have overcome the challenge of extremely difficult terrain to deploy the 4G network in the region, it said. “Airtel has been consistently ramping up its 4G capacity in the North East region to serve the fast-growing customer demand for high-speed data.

Airtel is the largest private mobile operator in Arunachal Pradesh with over half a million customers. Airtel’s 4G services cover over 30 towns and 900 villages across the state, the statement said.

Bharti Airtel Chief Executive Officer (North East and Assam) Raveendra Desai said the company remains committed to the government’s digital vision for the state and will continue to invest in expanding services.

As part of its network transformation programme Project Leap, Airtel plans to roll out 6,000 new mobile sites across North East during 2018-19 with the aim of stepping up network capacity and taking services deeper into rural and unconnected areas. According to the instructions given by the government, telcos are looking to ramp up their network connectivity in remote areas of North East regions.

Voda is pretty good in arunachal Pradesh. Voda/idea also present in Assam but no where near Airtel & Jio. Rest of the North East states it is only Airtel , Jio & BSNL.

Was in Mahabaleshwar few days back and was astonished to see that there is no 4G network of Airtel in that location. Even the 3G network of Airtel was not reliable and the data was only working in main market area with abysmal speed. Airtel keeps on boasting about providing 4G network in far flung areas but what about major tourist spots in the middle of the country? This is the location where high number of people from Pune, Mumbai and other nearby cities visit often for refreshment but Airtel’s apathy towards this tourist spot is worth noting.

Basically, if you live in Maharashtra, just don’t use Airtel.

I am having so much trouble in the Island City of Mumbai. But Airtel knows majority population doesn’t live in Island City, so less negative and more positive comments.

That can also be seen in TT where people from Delhi NCR are acting as spokesperson for Airtel but those living anywhere nearby are using Jio or VOID.

In Jalgaon too I have a lot of trouble with Airtel. Vodafone idea actually manages better coverage with less towers and Jio is surprisingly best.

Can somebody from Kerala back his comment.. Poor fella writing repeatedly since long and no body is listening to him… Please somebody from Kerala support his statement… Shinoj,. If this is true then it goes on to prove that Airtel is not emerging as nation wide coverage Telco. It is weighting it’s network coverage based on return on investment and number of customers in those location contrary to what jio is doing … Airtel fans please read this, if you are going to “God own country” for vacation , you may not get coverage on your Airtel number at resorts…

As you said before,Airtel must focus on revenue from cities and then turn this revenue to increase coverage and capacity in rural areas. They should have done this long ago but they kept on pushing forward.

Vodafone-Idea will do the same. They will expand in five to seven circles only. Remaining will stay at it is.
