Let’s start with what Airtel has to say about it. According to the telecom network provider and broadband service provider, V-Fiber is a unique combination of fiber and Vectorization technology that delivers super fast speed. That means faster downloads, less buffering, and an ultra-reliable Wi-Fi connection for all the devices in your home.
Vectorization is the new term here and that is the newer technology in India, and it has been there in Europe since quite some time. It is the most popular fixed broadband technology there and Airtel is taking advantage of that while it introduces V-Fiber in Chennai, and will follow it in 87 other places in India, starting with Delhi & NCR, and Bangalore.
“India is witnessing an explosive growth in data usage and a lot of in-home data consumption is happening over fixed broadband that offers consistent speeds. With ‘V-Fiber’ and our national optic fiber backbone, we are all set to offer a future ready network for tomorrow’s digitally connected homes,” Ajai Puri, Director – Operations, Bharti Airtel said in a statement.
“This solution, besides reducing our carbon footprint, offers a very quick and convenient upgrade to the customer. We are also delighted to launch our innovative myHome Rewards and unlimited free voice calling facility for our customers,” he added
The technology used in vectorization is called Channel Bonding, which would take the different copper lines and multiplex the data stream to get a better throughput. It is technically much harder to understand but the main point here is that Airtel is using Vectorization to offer better speeds on the existing lines and what it needs is an upgrade to your current router and no new wires or connections are needed for that.
If you have an Airtel broadband connection already, you just have to buy the modem and get a FREE upgrade to V-FIBER. On the other hand, if you don’t have an Airtel connection, just book it now and get unlimited internet offer for 3 months. We are not told of any FUPs here, so will take the “unlimited” as unlimited for now, but the technology that has been widely used and works well in Europe should really give a boost to the speeds on the same connection, so V-Fiber is worth trying out.
