When I am in India, my only concern is slow internet speed. Broadband has connectivity issues and internet on phone is terrible. It takes forever to upload a picture on Facebook and it’s impossible to watch any video on YouTube, at least in the smaller towns. Even with the best of plans, you gaze at the screen with pity. The only thing that moves on your screen is the buffering symbol. But, not anymore. Good news is Airtel has launched 4G services, becoming the first telecommunication brand to launch 4G service in India.
After hearing about it, I heaved a sigh of relief. I am going to India in September and I use my mother-in-law’s SIM in my phone. She has Airtel connection. And this time I will be active on blogging and social media, all thanks to Airtel 4G. So much so that I’ve asked her to upgrade her connection as it’s a cake walk. Yes, it’s not only simple to get a 4G connection, but it’s free as well. You heard me right! All you have to do to get a 4G connection is tweet #GetAirtel4G to @AirtelIndia. After sending the tweet, you will receive a reply with a link from Airtel. This link will direct you to a form, where you will fill your personal and delivery details. And, a brand new 4G SIM will be delivered at your doorsteps free of cost. What an outstanding customer service by Airtel!
However, there are two things that you need to keep in mind. First, you need to have an existing Airtel 3G connection, which my family has. And two, a 4G enabled smartphone, which I have. I am pretty excited to experience the blazing internet speed.
The best thing for me is that Airtel has introduced the 4G services in 296 cities across India, which includes my hometown and other cities I visit. When I told my mom-in-law about this, she was pleasantly surprised. She couldn’t believe it. Normally whenever any service is launched in India, small towns are left out. To have a fast connection in a small town like Ambala, speaks very high of Airtel and its policy to reach to the maximum number of customers. So, in my case, wherever I will visit, there will not be any connectivity issues. This just makes me super happy. Don’t you know, internet is the lifeline of bloggers!
Wait, most thrilling part is that 4G service is provided at the cost of 3G. Existing 3G users are getting the improved speed, free SIM, free delivery without shelling any more money. For new customers or those switching from other networks, it will be much cheaper. Totally amazing, isn’t it! It’s a win-win situation for everyone.
So, what are you waiting for? Tweet and update to the fastest internet plan available in India. #GetAirtel4G - The best network ever!
