Further, the telco is planning to roll out 6,000 new mobile sites across the region in financial year 2018-19. This will take the number of Airtel’s mobile sites across Assam and North East to 25,000, an increase of 31 per cent.

Airtel also plans to deploy 3,000 km of fresh optic fibre in the region to take its fibre footprint to 16,000 km.
