Airtel expands its Xstream Fiber FTTH network to Ladakh and Andaman & Nicobar Islands
Bharti Airtel has announced the launch of its Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) broadband service – Airtel Xstream Fiber in Ladakh and Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The telecom provider has become the first private ISP to roll-out FTTH broadband in these remote geographies and bring world-class digital access to customers by connecting them to the data superhighway.
Commenting on the occasion, K. Rajaraman, Secretary - Department of Telecom, Government of India said: “We congratulate Airtel on the launch of its FTTH service in Ladakh and Andaman and Nicobar. The commissioning of the undersea cable link between Chennai and Port Blair by the Honourable Prime Minister last year has brought high speed data connectivity to the region as part of the Government’s Digital India vision. It’s encouraging to see the initiatives of private operators like Airtel to bring high speed broadband to citizens in this area.”
Vir Inder Nath, CEO – Broadband business at Bharti Airtel said, “We are delighted to bring Airtel Xstream Fiber’s high quality broadband experience to these regions. The post pandemic era has led to a surge in demand for high speed broadband in homes, especially for work for home, online learning as well as online entertainment. Airtel is investing aggressively to serve this customer need and plans to expand its FTTH footprint to 2000 towns across the country over the next three years and contribute to a digitally connected India.”
Airtel Xstream Fiber’s high speed broadband is currently available to customers in Leh in Ladakh, and Port Blair in Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The company plans to scale the service to other key locations in the regions in the coming months.
Airtel Xstream Fiber comes loaded with advanced technology for a superior experience. Its next-gen Wi-Fi routers deliver symmetrical download and upload speeds and can connect up to 60 devices concurrently. This is backed by Airtel’s superior 24x7 customer support and proven network reliability. Airtel Xstream Fiber had over 4.8 million customers as of March 31, 2022.
