Aircel to expand its 3G services across 61 towns in Bihar

While most operators are focusing on 4G LTE rollout, Aircel has announced its expansion plans for 3G network in Bihar.


Aircel has announced its plans to expand its 3G network in Bihar by adding as many as 61 new towns to its network by December this year. To enable this, the operator would set up 600 towers across Bihar to provide seamless connectivity to its constantly growing subscriber base. This would come in addition to the existing 3300 towers.

With the focus on 3G in Bihar, Aircel subscribers can avail 3G speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps and consume live streaming videos, HD content, gaming, social networking and browsing at very high speeds. The 61 new towns include Arrah, Buxar, Motihari, Sitamarhi, Lakhisarai, Begusarai, Dighwara, Bettiah, Aurangabad, Jehanabad, Purnia, Nalanda, Biharsharif and Munger.

Speaking of the initiative, Kumar, Business Head – Bihar, Aircel, said, “The population of 3G users that expects a seamless experience is dramatically increasing, especially as mobile handsets are increasingly being used for varied purposes. We have been working tirelessly to live up to this expectation of our customers and hence, we’ve redoubled our effort in expanding our 3G network all across Bihar.”
