Airtel said that it has further upgraded its 4G network in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana with the deployment of LTE 900 technology that will significantly enhance the network experience for its smartphone customers.

Airtel plans to rollout the technology across 10 circles, including Delhi and Mumbai. With the rollout of 4G in the superior 900 Mhz spectrum band, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana’s mobile network will get additional high speed data capacity to serve its customers, said Airtel.

More importantly, given the high propagation and reach of the 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 Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

In Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, Airtel uses a solid spectrum bank - 2300 Mhz (TD LTE), 1800 Mhz (FD LTE), and 900 Mhz (LTE 900) to offer world-class 4G services to customers. In addition, Airtel has 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. 

Avneet Puri, CEO, Andhra Pradesh, Bharti Airtel
Our endeavor is to deliver best-in-class network experience to our customers. The deployment of LTE 900 will further boost Airtel 4G coverage, particularly inside homes and buildings. Airtel smartphone customers will enjoy a seamless high speed data and HD quality calling experience on our upgraded network.  We will continue to invest aggressively in deployment of latest network technologies to delight our customers.
