Bharti Airtel (“Airtel”), India’s largest telecommunications services provider, has launched its 4G services in Bihar starting with Patna, Gaya, Siwan, Motihari and Bhagalpur.
With this, customers across these towns can now enjoy high speed mobile broadband on Airtel 4G and get on to the digital superhighway to enjoy uninterrupted HD video streaming, superfast uploading and downloading of movies, music and images.
Airtel 4G is available to customers across a range of smart devices including mobile phones, dongles and 4G hotspots.
Special demo zones and kiosks have been installed at Airtel Stores at all the Own and Franchisee retail stores in these places respectively. Customers across Bihar can switch their existing 2G/3G SIMs with 4G ready USIMs completely free of cost at any Airtel store/ retailer in the city.
To ensure higher network capacity and superior customer experience, Airtel 4G services in Bihar have been rolled out using dual spectrum bands of 1800 MHz (FD LTE) and 2300 MHz (TD LTE).
This also makes Bihar amongst the few states in India to have an integrated dual band Airtel 4G network. Airtel will extend its 4G footprint to other towns across Bihar in the coming months.
