4G is a successor to the 3G and 2G families and is expected to be five times quicker than the 3G services in the country.
Following the recent inaugural launch of Airtel 4G services in Kolkata, customers in Bengaluru have now become the second in India to have access to cutting edge 4G LTE technology that delivers the most advanced wireless broadband experience available across the globe. As a first for the telecom industry worldwide, Airtel has also introduced ‘Smartbytes’ for 4G thus allowing customers to buy these add on packs and continue enjoying the 4G experience even after exhausting their monthly data limits.
