Airtel launches Platinum 3G in India; Mumbai will be the first city to experience the superior connectivity
MUMBAI: Bharti Airtel, a leading global telecommunications company with operations in 20 countries across Asia and Africa, is all set to enthral the lives of the Mumbaikars with the launch of the much awaited Platinum 3G. Winning the 900 MHz band in September 2013, Airtel will be using it to complement the existing 2100 Mhz resulting into greater speed and connectivity. Being the first telecom operator in India to launch Platinum 3G, Airtel will offer the services of Platinum 3G at the existing 3G tariffs. Mumbai is the primary Indian city to experience the superior connectivity. The company has further plans to extend the services to Kolkata.
Airtel Platinum 3G is India’s best 3G network offering a variety of benefits. Till date, Airtel has 50L subscribers in Mumbai and is the only network that works on the Platinum band and provides seamless connectivity, superior network quality and better indoor coverage to such a large customer base. Airtel customers in Mumbai can browse the Internet 34% faster, get 30% better indoor coverage and enjoy 16% longer extended battery life. Additionally, users can stream videos 25% faster than the existing speed.
Commenting on the launch of Platinum 3G, Ashok Ganpathy Hub CEO, Mumbai, Maharashtra, Goa and Gujarat, Bharti Airtel (India) said,. “As a leader in the telecommunication space it is our endeavour at Airtel to consistently innovate and provide a seamless network to our customers. The launch of Platinum 3G is an integral part of this commitment to enhance customer satisfaction by providing superior connectivity on existing 3G tariffs. Considering this we would now like to invite data savvy customers in Mumbai to enjoy this world class experience.”
Airtel signed a contract with data networking and telecom equipment company, Nokia Networks, a subsidiary of Nokia Corporation, to enhance its 3G network in Mumbai. As part of the deal, a dual band, dual carrier 3G network has been set up at Mumbai, reframing 900 MHz to complement the city’s existing 3G network on 2100 MHz. This is expected to enable higher throughput and thus improved 3G services for Bharti Airtel’s customers.
