Bharti Airtel has announced it deployed ‘V-Fiber’ technology in Chennai to offer superfast broadband speeds to its customers. The technology is claimed to deliver speeds of up to 100 Mbps on Airtel’s fixed broadband. The service will be rolled out in 87 more cities in the coming weeks. Airtel says it is the first operator in India to deploy Vectorization. Airtel has upgraded its equipment to handle fiber speeds. “V-Fiber will transform the home broadband for Airtel customers with consistently superfast data speeds and enable HD video streaming, heavy file downloads and uploads in a multi-device environment (over Wi-Fi),” Airtel said in a press statement. To experience Airtel’s new ‘V-Fiber’ speeds, one simply needs to upgrade to a new modem.

Existing Airtel broadband customers can upgrade to ‘V-Fiber’ speeds with their current plan at no extra monthly charges. Airtel says it will refund the modem charges within a month if users are not happy with the service. Also, the amount will be adjusted in their next bill cycle. New users get three months trial offer.

“With ‘V-Fiber’ and our national optic fiber backbone, we are all set to offer a future ready network for tomorrow’s digitally connected homes. This solution, besides reducing our carbon footprint, offers a very quick and convenient upgrade to the customer. We are also delighted to launch our innovative myHome Rewards and unlimited free voice calling facility for our customers,” said Ajai Puri, Director – Operations, Bharti Airtel.

Airtel is also offering unlimited free voice calling to all of its broadband customers. The service is now live across broadband plans. Customers can make free voice calls to any network across the country. Airtel recently launched the ‘myHome Rewards’ program for its broadband customers. Under the program, customers will get free additional data benefit of 5GB per month for every other Airtel service connection – postpaid mobile or digital TV (DTH) – within the home.

    Living in Chennai. Submitted the request and got a call from Airtel today and they told that it will take 2 to 3 more months for this. So, Airtel is not ready in Chennai itself and is giving false news to attract the customers due to fierce compeion. Better go for ACT which gives very high speeds.
