Bharti Airtel said that it is doubling down on its partnership with local cable operators to expand its home broadband services to tap the opportunity in smaller towns across India.
“We also believe that there is a massive opportunity in smaller towns across India on the home broadband market. We are now live in 14 such cities through this partnership model,” Airtel Chief executive officer Gopal Vittal said during Q1FY21 earnings call.
Bharti Airtel’s broadband business grew by 1.1% sequentially, driven by strong gross additions. However, a part of this growth was hampered by the temporary closure of small offices and shops who chose to turn off their service during the lock down. India Times
