Private Telecommunications India Bharati Airtel improved 4g network with Ultra-Fast 4G services on the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

Bharti Airtel announced the launch of its "Ultra-Fast 4G" services on the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The development follows in the footsteps of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who inaugurated submarine fiber optic cable connectivity between Chennai and the Andman and Nicobar Islands (CANI project).

The submarine fiber optic cable (OFC) that connects Chennai and Port Blair is said to offer 2x 200 Gbps between the two cities. Additionally, the project is said to provide 2 × 100 Gbps between Port Blair and other islands. In a statement, the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said 4G mobile services in the islands will see a "major improvement" following the inauguration of the CANI project

It should be noted that Airtel in January 2019 said it had launched 4G services in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. However, the CANI project allows Airtel to offer improved speeds to its 4G users on the islands.

We hope that the Department of Telecommunications accelerates the deployment of USOF to build the aforementioned backbone infrastructure to complement the efforts of telecom operators to bridge the digital divide.

Mobile operators renew mobile services in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands

Airtel is said to have been present in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands since 2005 and the company noted that it was "the first private operator to launch mobile services" in the region.

"Airtel with today's launch of 'Ultra-fast 4G' services hopes to further strengthen its bond with customers on the islands," the company said in a statement.
