Airtel launches 5G Plus wireless home Wi-Fi in Indiatext_fields
New Delhi: Bharti Airtel on Monday announced the launch of its fixed wireless access (FWA) service, 'Airtel Xstream AirFiber', powered by 5G Plus in India.
The service is now available in the cities of Delhi and Mumbai, and the company plans to launch it 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 of Consumer Business Bharti Airtel, said in a statement.
According to the company, Airtel Xstream AirFiber is the country’s first 5G wireless Wi-Fi solution that will offer internet to consumers in “fiber-dark areas”.
The company added that this will address the last-mile connectivity issue in both rural and urban India where access to 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.
To avail the service, customers can walk into select Airtel stores in Delhi and Mumbai and opt for Xstream AirFiber. The service offers quick and easy self-installation with the Xstream AirFiber app. Users can manage the connection through the same application.
