    Airtel launched its 4G services in Bengaluru in 2012 on the 2300 Mhz band using the TD LTE standard and recently added capacity on the 1800 Mhz band using FD LTE. With today's rollout, Bengaluru is among the few cities globally to have high speed data services over 4G Advanced.

    Under the carrier aggregation deployment, the capacities of TD LTE (2300 MHz spectrum band) and FD LTE (1800 MHz spectrum band) have been combinedto enable better spectrum utilization and efficiency.

    In February 2016, Airtel deployed India's first carrier aggregation in Kerala and the network achieved 4G data speeds of up to 135 Mbps on commercially available mobile devices.
