Airtel Phases Out 3G Technology In Kolkata


The telco has announced the shutdown of its 3G network in Kolkata, and now mobile broadband services in the city will be available on 4G.

The new move comes at that time when the company is expanding its 4G reach across the country; however, there is a catch as Airtel will continue to provide 2G services in the city to serve the feature phone users.

Airtel also said that all customers on 3G were duly notified and requested to upgrade their handsets/SIMs to continue enjoying best-in-class smartphone experience.

Furthermore, the telco is deploying state-of-the-art L900 technology in the 900 MHz band to complement its 4G services in the 2300 Mhz and 1800 Mhz bands.

With L900, smartphone customers will enjoy improved 4G availability inside buildings - homes, offices, and malls. It will also result in a wider availability of 4G and a superior network experience across Kolkata.

Airtel informed that its 4G services will be available in Lakshadweep initially and it will gradually be expanded to other parts of the islands.

Meanwhile, the telco has announced that it has extended Airtel Thanks benefits to its 'V-Fiber' Home Broadband users subscribed to the Rs 1,099 plan.
