Airtel launches 100Mbps V-Fiber broadband services in Mumbai
Bharti Airtel (Airtel) on Wednesday announced the launch of its superfast broadband services V-Fiber in Mumbai. The broadband service will offer Airtel's existing customers speed of up to 100 Mbps in the city and is based on Vectorization whic is Europe’s top fixed broadband technology.
It will enable HD video streaming, heavy file downloads and uploads in a multi-device environment (over Wi-Fi). ‘V-Fiber’ uses a green technology as there is no new wiring, drilling etc required at an existing customer’s premises. One simply 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.
Airtel has already brought fiber into colonies and neighborhoods and upgraded exchanges. Existing Airtel broadband customers can upgrade to ‘V-Fiber’ at no extra monthly cost.
Airtel also said that it will refund the modem charges if the customer is not happy with the service within one month and will be adjusted in the next bill cycle.
V-Fiber plans for new customers start from Rs 899 and can subsequently avail the 3 months unlimited offer.
Sameer Batra, CEO – Mumbai, Bharti Airtel said, “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.”
