Bharti Airtel owns one of the most successful Internet service providers (ISPs) in India, called Airtel Xstream Fiber. The company has become the first in India to launch FTTH (Fiber-to-the-Home) services in Andaman & Nicobar Islands. This means that people living in the region can now finally get high-speed, reliable internet speeds from the Airtel Xstream Fiber.




K Rajaraman, Secretary, Department of Telecommunications (DoT), congratulated Airtel on the launch of its FTTH services in Ladakh and Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

Rajaraman said that the commissioning of the undersea cable ink between Chennai and Port Blair by Prime Minister Modi in 2021 had brought high-speed data connectivity to the region as part of the government’s Digital India vision.
