On Thursday, Sunil Bharti Mittal-driven Bharti Airtel said that it has launched its 4G services in the remote geography of Hayuliang, Anjaw district in Arunachal Pradesh.
This will allow customers in 100 villages across the Hayuliang region to access 4G and HD quality VoLTE. The company has plans to gradually expand its 4G services to other parts of the district.
There will be no additional data charges for VoLTE and calls will be billed as per existing plan or pack benefits.
The telco said that its network teams and partners have overcome the challenge of extremely difficult terrain to deploy a state-of-the-art 4G network in the region.
Airtel is the largest private mobile operator in Arunachal Pradesh with over half million customers. Its 4G services cover over 30 towns and 900 villages across the state.
Raveendra Desai, Chief Executive Officer, Bharti Airtel, North East and Assam said “We are pleased to launch our services in Hayuliang and look forward to delighting customers with best in class services on India’s best smartphone network. We invite customers to avail the exciting data offers and get on to the digital superhighway”.
Airtel plans to roll out 6000 new mobile sites across the region in FY 2018-19.
