The plan — which is part of its network expansion programme, ‘Project LEAP’, will bolster data capacities and taking services deeper into rural and unconnected areas. It translates into “addition of 1 new site per hour” to Airtel’s network in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, a company release said.

Last year, over 10,000 new sites were deployed in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, extending Airtel’s mobile broadband footprint to over 85 per cent of the population in the two states, the Airtel statement added.
