Bharti Airtel has launched its Vectoring-based ‘V-Fiber’ network in Mumbai, the most populous city in India. According to the Economic Times, V-Fiber is capable of delivering downlink transmission speeds of up to 100Mbps over the telco’s existing xDSL networks. The deployment forms one strand of Airtel’s ‘Project Leap’ initiative. Sameer Batra, CEO of Airtel’s Mumbai operations, told the Economic Times: ‘Airtel is investing across all [of its] businesses to upgrade existing broadband [networks] to make [them] future proof.’

TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database writes that V-Fiber was first launched in Chennai in October 2016. Going forward, Airtel intends to extend the platform to Delhi & the National Capital Region (NCR), Bangalore, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad.
