Airtel has launched its V-Fiber service in Mumbai. This service support speeds up to 100 Mbps. Although this service was initially launched in Chennai, it is now being rolled out to other cities gradually.
Existing Airtel broadband consumers in Mumbai can upgrade to V-Fiber at no additional cost. This roll out is a part of Airtel’s Project Leap which is an effort to upgrade the Airtel network to support the next generation of products and services.
The new service uses existing copper cables, and only the modem needs to be upgraded. Airtel is offering unlimited free calls anywhere in India as part of the offer for new users. The company adds that modem charges will be fully refunded within the first month if users are not happy with the connection.
Airtel is substantially upgrading all its exchanges to support V-fibre, and the “last-mile copper” uses vectorization to ensure that Airtel can provide the full bandwidth you’re paying for, at minimal cost.
“We are delighted to bring ‘V-Fiber’ to our customers in Mumbai, as part of our endeavor to deliver the best-in-class broadband experience to users,” said Sameer Batra, Chief Executive Officer – Mumbai, Bharti Airtel. “With ‘V-Fiber,’ we are all set to offer an altogether transformed experience on our future-ready network to the digitally savvy homes. This solution offers a very quick and convenient upgrade to the customer. Our innovative myHome Rewards program and free voice calling facility will certainly add to the delight of Mumbai’s Digital Homes.”
For a long time now the situation of Mobile Internet and broadband connectivity and Mobile in India have not been great. Reliance Jio and to some extent a few government initiatives have changes the scenario a lot.
