Airtel launches ‘superfast’ broadband service ‘V-Fiber’

Bengaluru : Airtel Wednesday announced the launch of ‘V-Fiber’ in Bengaluru and Hyderabad, to offer superfast broadband to its customers.
‘V-Fiber’ is based on Vectorization – Europe’s No.1 fixed broadband technology – and will deliver speeds of up to 100 Mbps over Airtel’s existing broadband footprint in the city, the company said.
The company said ‘V-Fiber’ is a green technology and there is no new wiring and drilling required at an existing customer’s premises and one simply needs to upgrade to a new ‘V-Fiber’ modem.
Airtel is the first operator in India to deploy Vectorization technology, which turbo charges the last mile copper with advanced noise elimination technology (just like in audio systems) to deliver superfast data speeds, it said in a release here.
Existing Airtel broadband customers can upgrade to ‘V-Fiber’ speeds to enjoy superfast data speeds at no extra monthly cost, it said.
New customers can avail the 3 month unlimited offer and subsequently choose V-Fiber plans starting from Rs 999, the release said.
