Airtel claims that with the new 'V-Fiber' it can deliver speeds up to 100 Mbps across its current connections in the city.
In order to offer superfast broadband to its customers, Bharti Airtel on Wednesday, launched the 'V-Fiber' in Mumbai. If you are not aware, V-Fiber is based on Vectorization which interestingly is Europe's No. 1 fixed broadband technology and Airtel claims that with the new 'V-Fiber' it can deliver speeds up to 100 Mbps across its current connections in the city.
Unlike standard implementation of a new broadband technology, V-Fiber is a green technology and doesn't require any new wiring or drilling at an existing customer's premises instead a user just needs to upgrade to a new V-Fiber modem. "Airtel is the first operator in India to deploy Vectorization technology, which turbo charges the last mile copper with advanced noise elimination technology (just like in audio systems) to deliver superfast data speeds" read the release.
To test out the new V-Fiber speeds, existing Airtel broadband users in Mumbai can subscribe to the new service with no extra monthly cost. If not satisfied within one month, the existing users can opt out of the subscription and all the money including modem charges will be refunded. On the other hand, new customers, can subscribe to V-Fiber broadband with plans starting from Rs 899 and can subsequently avail the 3 months unlimited offer. To put on your requests, visit www.airtel.in/vfiber or call on 18001030121.
Airtel V-Fiber deployment is a part of Airtel's nationwide network transformation initiative - Project Leap started last year. Under the initiative, Airtel is also augmenting its 550,000 Kms of domestic & international fiber/submarine cable capacity in order to drive down latency, improve customer experience and serve the growing demand of data services in years to come. The Company is also increasing caching of content at its data centres to improve data experience for customers.
Recently, the telecom operator added two new affordable plans to its myPlan Infinity postpaid offers Rs 549 and Rs 799. Earlier, the lowest myPlan Infinity offer starts from Rs 1,199, which is double of its current offering.
Further, as the result of Jio's Happy New Year offer, Airtel also introduced two new bundled packs offering free unlimited calls and 4G data.
