Bharti Airtel today announced that it would continue to make significant investments to expand its operations and network footprint across Kerala. As part of its company's ongoing network transformation program, Project Leap, Airtel plans to roll out 5,000 new mobile sites across Kerala in FY 2018-19 to add large network capacity and take high-speed data services deeper into rural areas. This effectively translates to one new Airtel mobile site going LIVE every two hours across the state. With this planned rollout, the number of Airtel’s mobile sites across Kerala will go up by 30% to 22,000 and add to the network experience for customers.


Airtel also plans to roll out 500 kms of fresh optic fibre across the state to take its fibre footprint to 6,000 kms. The addition of fresh fibre capacity will support the growth of high-speed data services in the state.

Manoj Murali, CEO - Tamil Nadu & Kerala said, “Kerala is an important market for us, and we are committed to expanding our high-speed data networks to every corner of the state. As part of Project Leap, we will continue to aggressively invest in building a world-class future-ready network in Kerala.”

To recall, Airtel was the first operator to launch 4G services in Kerala circle. Airtel also launched India’s first 4G advanced in Kochi combining capacities of TD LTE (2300 MHz spectrum band) and FD LTE (1800 MHz spectrum band). Airtel’s high-speed mobile broadband network umbrella in the region covers all key urban, semi-urban and rural areas including highways, tourist destinations and trade centres.

Airtel is also offering the best-in-class tariff plans in Kerala circle. The leading telecom operator with over 300 million subscribers is offering 1.4GB daily data plans starting at Rs 199 and going all the way up to Rs 509. Furthermore, Airtel's myPlan Infinity postpaid plans are also live in Kerala circle and they start at Rs 399, going up to Rs 2,999.
