As part of its ongoing network nationwide transformation initiative - Project Leap, Bharti Airtel, India's largest telecommunications services provider, today has rolled out an upgraded mobile network in Rajasthan.
As part of the network upgrade, Airtel has deployed state of the art 'Dual Carrier' technology to combine the spectrum capacities of two 5MHz carriers in the 2100 MHz band. Airtel is the first mobile operator to deploy 'Dual Carrier' in 3G technology in Rajasthan.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our valued customers for their cooperation during the network upgrade."
