Bharti Airtel (“Airtel”), India’s leading telecommunications services provider, today said that it has upgraded its mobile network in Odisha to enable a superior voice experience for 4G smartphone users. This will add to the smartphone experience on India’s fastest mobile network.
The company has further optimized its 3G network, which carries bulk of the voice traffic for smartphone users, by deploying state of the art network solutions and advanced network software. 4G smartphone users on the Airtel network will now experience improved voice clarity, call stability and coverage.
Airtel has also increased its 4G coverage across Odisha to enable a seamless high speed data experience. This will result in improved 4G availability – both indoors and outdoors – and ensure that 4G smartphone users are always getting the best of data speeds. Airtel 4G has been consistently rated as the fastest network in India by multiple global agencies.
With improved 4G availability, customers can also opt for Airtel VoLTE which offers HD voice quality and faster call set up. What’s more, Airtel VoLTE offers uninterrupted connectivity with fallback on 3G/2G in case of non-availability of 4G. Close to 200 4G smartphones now support Airtel VoLTE.
Commenting on the development Sameer Anjaria, Chief Executive Officer – West Bengal & Odisha, Bharti Airtel Ltd said, “Our customers are at the core of everything that we do and we are constantly listening to their feedback. Given the massive surge in 4G smartphone penetration, we have stepped up our network investments to serve the exploding voice and data usage. Airtel has already cemented its place as the fastest network in India and with the latest optimization, smartphone users on our network will also enjoy best-in-class voice experience. We invite all customers to switch to Airtel 4G and enjoy the superior network experience.”
Airtel is trusted by over 12 million customers across Odisha. As part of Airtel’s network transformation program – Project Leap, the company plans to roll out 4,400 new sites and an additional 1,500 kms of optic fiber across the state in FY 2018-19.
