Bharti Airtel today launched 2G and 3G mobile services in towns of Lumla, Nafra and Longding in Arunachal Pradesh under its network transformation program “Project Leap”. The telco is the first one to introduce 3G services in these towns, as well as in entire state of Arunachal Pradesh.
Airtel’s mobile network currently covers close to half of the total population of Arunachal Pradesh.
Being the leading telecom operator in the state, Airtel has also connected towns like Bomdilla, Naharlagun, Daporijo, Itanagar, Tawang and Zero with 4G. Currently, it is the only operator offering 4G services in the region.
“We are committed to building telecom infrastructure across Arunachal Pradesh and take our services deeper into the state. The launch of services in Lumla, Nafra and Longding underlines our commitment to the region. Our teams have overcome difficult terrain and several operational challenges to ensure that our network serves customers even in these far flung locations,” said Sameer Anjaria, CEO, Airtel North East and Assam.
Airtel is also the largest mobile operator in North East and Assam, the company claims.
