V-Fiber is based on Vectorization, Europe s No 1 fixed broadband technology to enable superfast data download speeds, HD video streaming and heavy file download and upload, even in multi-device environment. It is deployed as a part of Airtel s network transformation program called Project Leap. The best part of Airtel V-Fiber is that it s a green technology that doesn t need new drilling to lay cables or rewiring in customer s premises. Instead, it uses ‘noise elimination technology’ to boost the last mile copper. ALSO READ: Reliance Jio effect: Airtel s new myPlan Infinity plans offer unlimited voice calling for Rs 549, Rs 799

To be able to handle the traffic and fast fiber speeds, Airtel has upgraded the local exchanges and nodes. The service will eventually be rolled out to all cities that have Airtel’s broadband coverage. Existing customers don t have to pay anything extra for the upgrade. However, they ll need to spend some money to get the new V-Fiber compatible modem by paying Rs 1,000.

Airtel in its press release mentioned that the plans start at Rs 899, but the data benefits aren t mentioned. However, according to a report on ET, the Rs 899 monthly rental plan offers 30GB data with speeds up to 40Mbps. This will be applicable after the initial three months of unlimited offer. Airtel will also be offering unlimited local and national voice calls to all broadband customers. The company s myHome Rewards program also offers data benefits in the form of extra 5GB per month for every other Airtel connection. For instance, if you have one Airtel postpaid connection and Airtel Digital TV, you ll get 10GB extra data per month, making it total 40GB. Similarly, if you have three connections, you get 15GB extra per month.

Talking about potential competition, Reliance Jio is already testing its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) service, with broadband speeds up to 1Gbps (or 125MB/s). According to rumors, tariff plans could start for as low as Rs 500, but there is no word on the official launch yet.
