Roughly a month after it was reported that Mumbai and Delhi are set to get Airtel's 4G services, new reports suggest that the services are likely to make an entry into Delhi by September. Bharti Airtel, a popular telco in the country, has reportedly got China-based Huawei to build and operate the high-speed network in the national capital.
Airtel currently offers its 4G services through dongles in Kolkata, Bangalore, Pune and Chandigarh.
Airtel 4G: Coming to Delhi soon?
Over the months, the operator has been working towards getting more subscribers within the 4G fold. To this end, Airtel even slashed the rates of its 4G services recently. As per the revised tariff plan, the base price for 4G services on Airtel, which is available in Kolkata, Bangalore, Pune and Chandigarh, will come down to Rs 450. Customers can now avail 3GB and 4GB of data at a faster 4G speeds by paying Rs 450 and Rs 750 per month respectively. Simply put, a subscriber in Pune can avail a 3GB data plan at 4G speed by paying Rs 450 – cheaper than the 3G pack available at Rs 675.
Those who avail the low end packs won’t be allowed to access Airtel’s entertainment library, as it will be reserved for customers on higher data plans – worth Rs 999 and above. Airtel’s entertainment library is developed in partnership with BIGFlix and Indiagames and offers nearly 1,000 different movies and games of different genres. Customers who avail the Rs 2,999 and Rs 4,799 plans will be offered free usage limits of 45GB and 80GB – an addition to the earlier levels of 30GB and 50GB respectively.
