Airtel Introduces Xstream AirFiber, a Wireless Home Internet Service in India

airtel xstream airfiber launched

Airtel has introduced its Xstream AirFiber service in India. Touted as India’s first fixed wireless access (FWA) service, Xstream AirFiber is based on Airtel 5G Plus and aims to provide a wireless Wi-Fi experience in all regions, especially in rural areas. Here’s a look at the details.

Airtel Xstream AirFiber: Details

The Airtel Xstream AirFiber is a portable device, which provides wireless internet access. It can be easily installed (even you can do it!) and all you have to do is, buy the Xstream AirFiber device, download the Xstream AirFiber app, and simply pair your devices with it. It can be managed via the app, so, there’s no hassle at all.

It supports enhanced speeds and coverage, thanks to the inbuilt Wi-Fi 6. It is said to provide about 50% higher speeds as compared to the Wi-Fi 5-based routers. Plus, it can be connected to up to 64 devices at the same time and these devices won’t lead to a lot of power consumption.

Commenting on the initiative, Shashwat Sharma, Director of Consumer Business Bharti Airtel, said, “India has seen the rapid growth of home broadband but there still remain areas with no access to hi-speed internet at home due to the physical challenges of laying fiber in a country the size of India. While fiber to the home will always define the best experience of Wi-Fi at home, AirFiber helps bridge the experience gap for everyone else.

The Xstream AirFiber service can be bought for Rs 799 a month, which includes 100Mbps speeds. This plan can be bought for 6 months at Rs 4,794 (discounted price is Rs 4,435). You will be required to pay a refundable security deposit of Rs 2,500 with this.

Currently, the service is active in Delhi and Mumbai but will reach more regions soon. If you live in any of these cities, you can head to the Airtel stores and make the purchase.

    In big cities many options are there. They should extend these services quickly to rural areas. Then city crouds will come down and it will benefit work from home.

    Airtel`s brand value has depleted a lot, service quality earlier 4-5 years back was commendable. Making profits is their top priority over customer satisfaction

    Jio to Airtel – Too soon bro…too soon

  • R. Mukerjee says:

    Where I live about 40 kms from Chennai we used to get a good signal from Airtel. It looks like the company is no longer interested in providing good service, a real shame as I would prefer to go with Airtel instead I find I’m using Jio.

  • Parikshit says:

    Don’t worry airtel will get smashed by jio fiber soon.. Because Realiance is showing it’s power in all the industries.

  • Kuldeep Singh Jamwal says:

    Its is good addition to the overall Airtel broadband Internet service. I had to forego my X stream fiber based internet when i shifted my residence to a non- optical fiber residence in Mohali and had to fall on uncertain Airfiber service provided by other companies, where the average speed was under 15 mbps.
    I hope my city Mohali is amongst the cities with Airtel Air-wifi service soon.

  • Mahinder kumar says:

    You are claiming that this service is specially for remote areas and at the same time you are launching this service in metropolitan cities which already has a dense web of several networks.
    What does it mean?

    • Anonymous says:

      That’s the joke. I’m glad somebody called it out 😂

  • Philie Angami says:

    The service of 2G, 3G, 4G and even 5G is a dream that couldn’t come true and now airfiber!. I would like to advise your esteem company to kindly fix the 4G and 5G issues where there’s still network/data problem and then introduce new tech. Last but not least Airtel isn’t Airtel anymore like it use to be.

  • Arpit kumar says:
