Airtel has become the first mobile operator to launch ‘Ultra-Fast 4G’ services in Andaman and Nicobar thanks to the commissioning of optical fiber submarine cable between Chennai to Andaman and Nicobar.
The blazing fast speeds on Airtel’s 4G network will deliver a world-class digital experience to customers and tourists on the islands.
Bharti Airtel congratulates the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) on the inauguration of the undersea optic fiber link between Chennai and Andaman and Nicobar by the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi.
Sunil Bharti Mittal, Chairman, Bharti Airtel said, “The new fiber link marks a major milestone in India’s digital transformation journey as this critical infrastructure reaches the strategic archipelago. We are grateful to the Prime Minister for taking the time to launch this key digital infrastructure.”
“The fiber link will be a game changer for the region and unlock the true potential of 4G and even 5G in future for customers. Airtel remains fully committed to the government’s vision of Digital India. We hope the DoT will accelerate the deployment of USOF for building such infrastructure backbone to complement the efforts of telecom operators to bridge the digital divide,” added Mittal.
Airtel has been serving customers in Andaman and Nicobar since 2005. It was the first private operator to launch mobile services in the islands. With today’s launch of Ultra-Fast 4G network, Airtel looks forward to further strengthening its bond with customers on the islands.
