How to connect to Airtel 3.75G / 4G LTE Data Plans

To access Airtel 3.75G internet you need to be in a 3.75G coverage area. Although Airtel claims they offer high speed internet in 36 states, it is important to note that the superfast 3.75G internet will be limited to major towns and cities within those states. Hence high speed internet will not be available in all locations in the said states.

You also need to have a compatible 3G device like a 3G feature phone or smartphone, tablet, router, or modem. Hence being on an Airtel 3G coverage area is not enough, your device needs to be 3G compliant as well.

If you have a 3G device, it will indicate whether you are on Airtel 3G coverage area or not. If you see indications like H, H+, 3G or 3.5G on your phone or tablet, it means that your phone or tablet is at least 3G compatible and can gain some speed boost on Airtel Internet networks.

You will see the indication WCDMA instead of EDGE on bottom left corner of your modem software display interface, if you are using a modem. This tells you can browse internet at high speed in the area.

Note that although Airtel claims its network supports 42Mbps, you are limited by the capacity of your device. Some 3G devices can only offer 3.6Mbps while some will handle 7.2Mbps and a few 14.4Mbps.

Once on an Airtel HSPA+ Internet coverage area you can start browsing once you have credit on your device. However, it is a good idea to get an airtel internet plan for a more affordable access.
