Here is a great news for Airtel’s customer in Mumbai. It is especially for those of you who want even faster speeds than the existing 3G. Airtel has just commenced the rollout of its 4G LTE services in Mumbai. I was there to witness the launch, and I’m currently test driving it as well. The speeds are mind-blowing to say the least. Still, the 4G network is in the beta stage so it is highly possible that you may not see throughout the city. Airtel executives have assured that they are working to make the experience seamless.
Now the question is, how do you get 4G on your existing Airtel number. The process is quite simple, indeed. For your to be able to see the 4G network it needs a new USIM which Airtel is giving for free of cost. Also, keep in mind that your phone must have support for LTE Band 40 (2300 MHz) as that’s what Airtel is using. You can visit their store or request a swap online here. It’s a 10 minute process and you’re done. To boost the adoption, Airtel is offering 4G plans at 3G rates. Aren’t you guys excited to have your minds blown?
