Airtel refers to its broadband offering that can support connections up to 100 Mbps as V-Fiber. V-Fiber was initially available in Chennai with plans of introducing it to 87 cities across India. The roll out has now come to Mumbai and existing Airtel Broadband consumers can upgrade to V-Fiber at no additional cost. V-Fiber uses Europe's most advanced broadband technology, called vectorisation. Vectorisation delivers higher bandwidth by reducing the interference in the connection.
"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," said Sameer Batra, Chief Executive Officer – Mumbai, Bharti Airtel. "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"
Boosting the capacity of the existing network for providing high speed last mile connectivity means that there is no requirement for additional road digging for roll out. Customers in Mumbai will be able to upgrade their connections and enjoy higher upload and download speeds. V-Fiber is designed for a multi device use case scenario. The connection uses existing copper cables, and only the modem needs to be upgraded.
For new users, Airtel has an unlimited three months offer. Airtel is offering unlimited free calls anywhere in India as part of the offer for new users. The roll out of V-Fiber in Mumbai is part of Airtel's Project Leap, an effort to upgrade the Airtel network to support the next generation of products and services. Airtel is the largest provider of broadband services in India, although most of it is through wireless broadband connections.
