Airtel launched V-Fiber in Chennai today which will offer speed up to 100 MBPS. This new service depends on Vectorization and it is the No.1 Fixed broadband technology in Europe. Airtel is the first telecom Operator to use this technology in India.
The company has also said that it has upgraded local exchanges with equipment to manage fiber speeds. There are also reports that there won’t be any need for drilling or wiring in the premises of the customer. All the user will require is a new modem to experience ‘V-Fiber’.
Airtel is also providing ‘V-Fiber’ to all the current users at no extra monthly cost. Airtel said, “If customer is not happy with the service within one month, modem charges and the amount will be adjusted in the next billing cycle.” The new customers will get unlimited trial offer for the first three months. The company has also announced unlimited free voice calling for all broadband users at no extra cost.
Ajai Puri, Director – Operations, Bharti Airtel said:
India is witnessing an explosive growth in data usage and a lot of in-home data consumption is happening over fixed broadband that offers consistent speeds. Airtel has always innovated ahead of the curve and offered its customers best-in-class broadband technology and experience. With ‘V-Fiber’ and our national optic fiber backbone, we are all set to offer a future ready network for tomorrow’s digitally connected homes. This solution, besides reducing out carbon footprint, offers a very quick and convenient upgrade to the customer. We are also delighted to launch our innovative myHome Rewards and unlimited free voice calling facility for our customers.
This is certainly a good move to compete with other leading internet services such as ACT Fibernet in Chennai. Let us know whether you like this new service by Airtel.
