India's leading telecom service provider Airtel has today launched its 4G services in Amritsar, Hoshiarpur, Phagwara and Kapurthala in Punjab. The company had already rolled out 4G LTE services in Chandigarh, Mohali and Panchkula in Punjab and Haryana back in March. Moreover, even Ludhiana and Jalandhar got the same service back in May.
Airtel has also launched a special pack of Rs. 999 and Rs. 995 (for prepaid) that comes with 10GB of 4G data. Moreover, for its customers' comfort, Airtel has also set up special demo zones and kiosks in Amritsar, Kitchlu Chowk, Hoshiarpur, Kotwali Bazar, Guru Hargobind Nagar, and in Kapurthala at Court Chowk. Airtel customers can access 4G services via dongles, Wi-Fi CPEs (Customer Premise Equipment/ routers) and mobile phones in these cities.
About the new service, Manu Sood, Hub CEO, Upper North, Bharti Airtel (India) said, "Today, we are proud to announce the much awaited launch of Airtel 4G services in Amritsar, Hoshiarpur, Phagwara and Kapurthala that fulfills a huge market requirement and will give customers the power to upgrade to cutting edge 4G technology - the most advanced wireless broadband experience available across the globe today, matching their internet experience with the rest of the world."
He further added, "As a brand we are committed to enriching the lives of millions and invite our data savvy customers in these cities to enjoy this world class data experience which we are offering at unbeatable prices."
But not all 4G LTE phones support the 4G network from Airtel. SO be careful while buying the phones. Currently, the devices which support Airtel 4G bands are Apple iPhone 5S with model number A1530 and A1518, iPhone 5C (models A1529 and A1516). Moreover, you will also be able to use the service in Xolo LT 900 and LG G2 with model number D802T.
