Airtel launches 4G internet in Tricity
Global telecommunications company Bharti Airtel Limited in association with Apple Inc., on Friday launched 4G on mobile in Chandigarh, Mohali and Panchkula.
Airtel noted that until now, the customers from the Tricity were experiencing mobile internet on 2G speeds and longed to do much more with their mobile devices.
With the roll out of Airtel 4G services, customers can experience an all new 'electrifying' internet browsing experience anytime, anywhere.
Moreover, customers using Apple iPhone 5s or 5c have to just upgrade their existing Sim to a 4G Sim and select from any 4G plan or pack to start enjoying mobile internet browsing at unbeatable speeds, Airtel said.
According to the company officials, the customers will experience never before capabilities like high definition video streaming with zero buffering, downloading 10 movies in less than 30 minutes, uploading full holiday albums in less than 5 minutes by uploading 2 high quality photos per second and also connecting multiple devices without any experience constraint.
While existing and new prepaid customers can start enjoying 4G by selecting any of the affordable 4G packs after upgrading their Sim to a 4G Sim, postpaid customers can further customize their 4G plans by opting for an 'Airtel myPlan' of their choice and then select 'myPacks' or 'myBoosters' with 4G benefits.
While data browsing will be on 4G network, voice calls will be routed on 2G seamlessly with the CSFB (circuit switched fall back) technology, the officials informed.
Announcing the launch, Manu Sood, Hub CEO - Upper North, Bharti Airtel (India) said, "Tricity witnessed the advent of 4G last year and today we are proud to announce the launch of the much awaited 4G on mobile, empowering residents in the region to upgrade to the 4G - the fastest ever mobile broadband, matching their mobile internet experience with the rest of the world."
Sood added, "As a brand we are committed to enriching the lives of millions and invite our data savvy customers in the city to enjoy this world class data experience which we are offering at unbeatable prices."
Customers can also enjoy Airtel 4G on Xolo LT 900 and LG G2 (model D802T) apart from iPhone 5S (models A1530 and A1518) and 5C (models A1529 and A1516).
