Airtel has rapidly expanded its Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) broadband coverage to over 430 towns with plans of covering 30 million households in over 2,000 cities in the next three years. In support of this increased nationwide penetration into many previously underserved cities and markets, the latest network upgrades build on the strong long-term relationship between Airtel and Juniper Networks.
