Airtel finally launched 4G services in Mumbai, today. Airtel 4G is now available in Mumbai and you can avail the services for the price of 3G – it is the same 3G plan with 4G services for the same price – 4G at 3G price.
To use 4G services you will need to upgrade your SIM and of course your handset should support 4G. You can either visit the Airtel gallery / centre or request for the 4G upgrade online. Visit this link and click Mumbai, then select 4G for mobile or 4G on the go (using dongle).
You will then need to enter your mobile number, press go. You will immediately know if your handset is 4G ready (if you are already using 4G supported handset). If you have not upgraded to new 4G SIM you will get a message – ‘you need a 4G ready SIM’, enter your details and the new SIM will be delivered within 24 hours at your doorstep, there is no need to produce any documents and no need to change your current number.
So Airtel Mumbaikars, get ready for 4G!
