Telecom major Bharti Airtel Ltd said on Sunday that it has started delivering 4G mobile broadband speed of up to 135 megabits per second on commercially available mobile devices on Airtel’s 4G network in Kerala, said the media reports.

Commenting on the development, Bharti Airtel, MD and CEO (India and South Asia), Gopal Vittal said in a statement, quoted PTI that, “This is a game changer for mobile broadband in India. Airtel has pioneered 4G deployment in India and we are delighted to raise the innovation benchmark to deliver a world-class experience to our customers.”

To deliver this high speed, Airtel said that it has used carrier aggregation across TD LTE and LTE FDD on a LIVE 4G network, becoming the first mobile operator in India to commercially deploy LTE Advanced (4G+) technology.

With this, Airtel has joined a select group of global mobile operators to commercially deploy the technology that delivers ultra-fast mobile data speeds and enables better spectrum utilisation and efficiency, it said.

For carrier aggregation, Airtel has combined the capacities of spectrum held by it in 2300 MHz and 1800 MHz spectrum bands.

Nokia Networks has partnered Airtel in deploying the carrier aggregation technology in Kerala.

The deployment is part of Airtel's ongoing network transformation program -- Project Leap, under which it plans to invest Rs 60,000 crore over the next three years to meet the growing demand of voice and high speed data services, the statement said.

“Our strong 4G footprint and a rapidly maturing device ecosystem will now allow us to deliver the next level of high speed mobile data services on our network,” Vittal said.
