Bharti Airtel launched its fixed wireless access (FWA) offering, 'Airtel Xstream AirFiber', powered by 5G Plus for consumers in Delhi and Mumbai. The company plans to launch the service in multiple cities and scale up nationally in a phased manner. “While fibre to the home will always define the best experience of Wi-Fi at home, AirFiber helps bridge the experience gap for everyone else. Today, we are delighted to launch Xstream AirFiber for consumers in Delhi and Mumbai with a pan-India rollout planned soon,” Shashwat Sharma, Director Consumer Business Bharti Airtel, said in a statement.
Moreover, the company said that the Airtel Xstream AirFiber will offer internet to consumers in fiber-dark areas, addressing the last-mile connectivity issue in both rural and urban India where access to fiber infrastructure is a challenge. Xstream AirFiber is a plug-and-play device with in-built Wi-Fi 6 technology that will offer wide indoor coverage and can simultaneously connect up to 64 devices.
The wireless home Wi-Fi service is available at the Rs 799 plan, which offers up to 100Mbps speed. The plan can be availed for a duration of six months with a one-time refundable security deposit of Rs 2,500.
