MUMBAI: Bharti Airtel (“Airtel”), India’s leading telecommunications services provider, today said that its 4G network now covers over 15863 towns and villages in Assam, empowering customers with best-in-class high speed mobile broadband services.

Airtel, which is the #1 operator in Assam with over 8.4 million customers, recently announced a massive network expansion drive to further scale up its high speed data services across the region.

In addition, as part of its acquisition of Telenor’s India operations, Airtel has added 6 MHz of spectrum in 1800 MHz band to its portfolio in Assam. This will further boost 4G network capacity in the state, complement the rollout of new sites and fiber and enhance customer experience in the form of even better indoor and outdoor coverage.

Raveendra Desai, CEO, Assam and North East, Bharti Airtel said, “To bring more and more customers onto the digital highway, we are committed to further expanding our 4G services across Assam. The availability of budget friendly smartphones is driving a massive uptake of 4G data and Airtel aims to be the 4G network of choice of customers in Assam with its superior data experience. Airtel’s affordable plans and packs offer access to exciting digital services like music, movies, LIVE TV on mobile and we invite customers to experience our 4G network.” 

All Airtel 4G customers enjoy free access to Airtel TV that offers over 10,000 movies and TV shows plus 375 LIVE TV channels on the go. Airtel has also been consistently rated as the fastest network in India by global speed measurement leader - Ookla. 

Airtel offers the widest bouquet of mobile services (4G/3G/2G) in Assam backed by a wide distribution channel of over 39 thousand retail outlets that serves customers even in deep rural pockets. Airtel’s network now covers 30,000 towns and villages representing approximately 94% of the state’s population.
