Airtel has now launched its V-Fiber broadband internet service in Mumbai, offering customers up to 100Mbps download speeds. The company had begun trialing V-Fiber in Chennai back in October this year, while promising a roll-out in other cities across India soon after. Bangalore, Delhi & NCR, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad are next on the list.
The price for V-Fiber plans in Mumbai starts at Rs 899. It comes bundled with 3 months of free, unlimited usage first. Existing Airtel broadband customers only need to pay Rs 1000 for a new modem to get started. New users will have to go through the whole drilling, wiring and modem-purchasing process to get access to V-Fiber. Doesn’t sound that bad a deal for web browsing speeds of up to 100Mbps.
So what if you don’t like the Airtel V-Fiber service because 100Mbps is too much for your brain to adjust to after a lifetime of slow internet? Under the company’s scheme, those who want to cancel their upgraded or new connection within one month of using it, will get a refund on the cost of the modem. The amount will be adjusted in the following bill cycle.
Instead of digging up roadways to add cabling, Airtel can leverage its existing DSL infrastructure, or copper cabling, fortified with vectorization (interference elimination technology) to deliver its super-fast broadband service. With the goal of reducing attenuation to the broadband signal, Airtel has also equipped its local exchanges to handle the much higher fiber speeds.
