Even while Airtel had launched its 4G services way back in 2015, the company was gradually pushing out its services across all the 22 telecom circles. Today, the company finally closed the process by deploying the 4G LTE services in Jammu and Kashmir circle.
Bharti Airtel has announced the launch of its 4G LTE services in Jammu and Kashmir starting with Jammu, Akhnoor, Nagrota, Kathua, Katra, Samba, Udhampur, Reasi, Rehambal, Bari Brahamana, Billawar, Ghomanhasan, Miran Sahib, Misriwala, Raipur Domana, Bashohli, Hiranagar, Rajauri, Sunderbani, Thanamandi, Jyotipuram, Talwara, Badlirakh, Garnai and Vaishno Devi.
The Airtel 4G services in Jammu and Kashmir, which are rolled out using the 1800 MHz (FD LTE) band, can be accessed from a range of smart devices including mobile phones, 4G MiFi and dongles. Airtel customers in the circle can upgrade to a 4G SIM for free and choose from a range of Prepaid and Postpaid plans which are priced at 3G prices.
Speaking about the launch, Raveendra Desai, COO – J&K, Bharti Airtel, said, “We are pleased to launch our 4G services in the state of Jammu & Kashmir and look forward to delighting customers with best in class services on India’s best smartphone network. We invite customers to avail the exciting data offers and get on to the digital superhighway.
