All Telcos are in rush to upgrade their infrastructure and offerings. As the 5G bringing new dimension in the telecom business, Indian telcos are moving alongside with the changing technology. To extend their coverage, Bharti Airtel is establishing LTE 900 technology in Delhi-NCR. First seen, in North-East and Assam region, now Delhi will be befitting the LTE 900 technology on the 900 Mhz spectrum.
This new upgrade from Airtel is said to foster high-speed network capacity and enhance indoor network experience for Airtel 4G smartphone customers.
With 900 Mhz spectrum, Airtel smartphone customers will enjoy improved 4G availability inside buildings – homes, offices and malls. It will also result in wider availability of Airtel 4G across Delhi NCR.
“Citing on the new deployment, Vani Venkatesh, CEO – Delhi/NCR, Bharti Airtel said, “We are obsessed about delighting our smartphone customers with quality network experience and high-speed data services. As we introduce LTE-900, we will further step up our indoor network coverage. It will enable high-speed connectivity and HD quality VoLTE calling for our customers in Delhi.”
The LTE 900 isn’t the only technology that Airtel has deployed in the region. As part of its network upgradation, the telco has also installed pre-5G Massive MIMO and Carrier Aggregation to enhance network capacity over the existing spectrum. The company had recently conducted License Assisted Access (LAA) trial over a LIVE 4G network in Delhi and recorded speeds of 500 Mbps (appx.) over smartphones.
Besides this, Airtel has also deployed the latest network technologies such as Pre-5G, Volte, Massive MIMO and Carrier Aggregation to serve the massive surge in data and voice usage in the regions near Delhi.
