After Chennai, Airtel Launches V-Fiber In Mumbai

Bharti Airtel today launched its ‘V-Fiber’ broadband services – that claims to provide data speed of up to 100 mbps – in Mumbai. The service, based on vectorization technology, was first launched in Chennai two months back and the company had then said it will be rolled out in other cities in coming times.

The company said existing Airtel broadband customers can upgrade to ‘V-Fiber’ speeds at no extra monthly cost. The V-Fiber plans start from Rs 899 and if they are not happy with the service within one month, the company said it will refund the modem charges and the amount will be adjusted in the next bill cycle. Besides, new customers can avail the 3 months unlimited offer.

‘V-Fiber’ is a green technology and does not require new wiring, drilling,one simply needs to upgrade to a new ‘V-Fiber’ modem.

“We are delighted to bring ‘V-Fiber’ to our customers in Mumbai, as part of our endeavour to deliver best-in-class broadband experience to users. 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,” said Sameer Batra, Chief Executive Officer – Mumbai, Bharti Airtel.

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. With V-Fiber, Airtel has brought fiber into colonies & neighborhoods and upgraded exchanges.

The company also announced the launch of unlimited free voice calling for all broadband customers. The facility is now available across broadband plans and customers can make unlimited free voice calls to any network across the country at no extra cost.

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.
