Airtel has launched its 4G LTE services in Kharagpur in West Bengal, making it the second city in Bengal to have 4G services. Airtel 4G in Kharagpur will be offered using dual spectrum bands of 2300 MHz (TD LTE) and 1800 MHz (FD LTE). It is also one of the few cities in India to have an integrated dual band 4G network, which ensures higher network capacity for a better experience.


Airtel launched its Rs. 60,000 crore network transformation and expansion program ‘Project Leap’ aimed at improving network quality, back in November 2015. It also launched a special website that allows customers to track how Project Leap, is progressing in their respective localities.

It already launched a new range of Infinity Plans starting Rs. 999 with unlimited voice calls, including roaming on mobile, 4G data and access to Wynk Movies and Wynk Music. Customers who have a smartphone with 4G support can upgrade to a 4G SIM at their nearest Airtel retail touch points in the citry or visit to request for a 4G SIM swap.

Commenting on the launch, Ravindra Singh Negi, CEO – West Bengal & Odisha, Bharti Airtel Limited said:

We are delighted to roll out our 4G services in Kharagpur. Customers can look forward to a superlative smartphone experience with Airtel 4G and enjoy superfast access speeds. We invite all data savvy customers to upgrade to Airtel 4G and be a part of India’s widest 4G network.
