      Aircel rolls out new 2G sites to strengthen network in Himachal Pradesh

      Adds 75 new 2G sites to provide a seamless voice and data usage experience to customers

      Shimla, April 17, 2015: In a step to further strengthen its commitment to customers in Himachal Pradesh, Aircel, one of India’s innovative leading telecom service providers, announced the expansion of its network in a bid to provide a redefined voice and data usage experience to its customers. As part of this exercise, Aircel will be adding 75 new sites to its network across Himachal Pradesh in less than a month. Owing to its highly affordable products and services that offer the best value-for-money, Aircel also recorded a growth in subscriber base, as it added close to 2 Lac subscribers in a little over a year.

      S. Premkumar, Business Head – Himachal Pradesh, Aircel, said, “All our products and services at Aircel enjoy great reception from our customers, and it truly delights us to see that our efforts in providing market-customized solutions have paid off. With the addition of 75 new sites across the length and breadth of Himachal Pradesh, we’re confident that we will build a robust network that will immensely help us serve our customers better.”

      He added, “Due to the hilly topography of Himachal Pradesh, the population is scattered and ensuring seamless coverage warrants a multitude of BTS/towers to be present all over the state. Our investment in the new sites will significantly address this challenge.”

      Over the past year, Aircel has introduced a host of innovative products and services for its customers in Himachal Pradesh, including the industry-first unlimited STD calls and Roaming at 10 paise per minute. It also introduced highly cost-effective Rate Cutters (RC) such as RC 54, which offers calls on the Aircel network at 1 paise/3 seconds, on other networks at 1paise/2 seconds and STD calls at 1 paise/second, among multiple others.
