Airtel 4G services go live in Moga

26-02-15-11
Bharti Airtel has announced the expansion of its 4G services to Moga which has now become the 11th town in Punjab to welcome the next generation network. The other areas in this Indian state that already enjoy the telecom company’s 4G coverage include Amritsar, Chandigarh, Ludhiana, Hoshiarpur, Jalandhar, Kapurthala, Mohali, Panchkula, Patiala and Phagwara.
In a press release issued to announce this roll-out, Manu Sood who serves as Airtel’s CEO for Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh, noted that customers who sign up for the speedier network can look forward to an ‘electrifying’ Internet browsing experience courtesy of the company’s 4G home Wi-Fi service. This surely means impeccable WhatsApp voice calling too, right?
There’s little need to wax eloquent on what the availability of 4G services means to Airtel customers, of course. Users should technically be able to download a standard length movie in less than 5 minutes. Hooking up multiple devices to the same connection through a Wi-Fi hotspot won’t hurt either and let’s not even get started on YouTube, Vimeo and other sites.

Airtel’s 4G coverage should be capable of delivering buffer free streaming of videos over the web. The operator is the biggest telecom company in India and is already busy trying to cement its future too. It’s been signing deals with various brands with the idea of keeping its top spot in the market as the country continues to pine for more data at faster speeds.
In January, it was spotted inking a pact with Nokia Networks India over the same. And in 2014, Airtel shook hands with Huawei concerning hardware support. Early this month, there was that deal with China Mobile regarding something similar too.
