Assam, May 30: Airtel upgraded its mobile network in Assam to deliver the best network experience for its user, said Bharti Airtel.
Airtel has deployed an additional 10 Mhz spectrum in the 2300 Mhz band, along with advanced network software tools across its network in the state to significantly bolster high-speed data capacity.
The deployment will strengthen the network for Airtel customers across the state. It will enable improved network availability and high data speeds as more people access high-speed data services from their devices.
Airtel had acquired the 10 Mhz spectrum for Assam during the recent auctions conducted by the Government of India. With this fresh spectrum, Airtel has the largest spectrum bank of 73.45 Mhz in Assam.
With its diverse spectrum holdings across 2300/2100/1800/900 bands, the company is well-positioned to serve the growing demand for high-speed data services and its network is fully ready for 5G.
Sovan Mukherjee, CEO-Assam and North East, Bharti Airtel said, “We are aggressively expanding our network in Assam by investing in the new spectrum and network upgrades to provide a world-class experience to our customers. With the new deployment in the 2300 Mhz band, we have addressed the surging demand for high-speed data in the state by building network capacity for a future-ready network. Airtel now has the largest spectrum bank in Assam and our network is well-positioned to adopt newer technologies in the coming days.”
Following the pandemic, the adoption of work from home, online classes, and video streaming have witnessed a massive surge. Airtel’s intervention to build additional capacities will go a long way in helping customers stay connected.
Airtel has also deployed advanced network technologies and tools such as pre-5G Massive MIMO, 4G Advanced, and Carrier Aggregation to step up high-speed network capacity and coverage.
