Recently we have seen ads where we can tweet to get the location of an ATM, we can tweet to get balance from our bank accounts, we can tweet to get money transferred but for the first time there is a unique service that is being offered for tweeting. Before I tell you what the service is and who’s offering and what to tweet, lets get a little technically historical.
The first generation or 1G of mobile network technology was introduced back in 1970s’. These systems were referred to as cellular, which was later shortened to "cell", due to the method by which the signals were handed off between towers. 2 decades later in 1990s’ 2G was introduced with GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) with just improved quality. Many of us don't’ know that there was an intermediate phase, 2.5G (EDGE Network) in the late 1990s’ which had improved graphics data sharing.
Early 2000s’ saw a revolution of 3G and we all knew that this was just a beginning for something better and faster. In another tenner of years 4G has been introduced aiming to serve more than just voice calls/internet by providing applications including amended mobile web access, IP telephony, gaming services, high-definition mobile TV, video conferencing, 3D television, and even cloud computing. Why did I tell you this long story of mobile networks? Well for many of us 4G is just a technology jargon (even I never knew this before writing this post) and throwing light on a little background can help us understand and take advantage of the technology completely.
Now let’s get to the topic of what this post was started with. Airtel is the leading mobile network provider in
and many of us are happy
customers of their various services. Airtel is introducing Airtel 4G for all it’s 4G handset
owners. In order to use 4G service a user has to have a 4G enabled mobile
device and a 4G SIM. There are many users with a 4G mobile and Airtel has found
an innovative way of reaching them. India
Airtel offers a unique 4G SIM delivery service, wherein any Airtel user with a 4G handset can tweet using #GetAirtel4G to get a 4G SIM delivered to their home for free. Once a user tweets #GetAirtel4G he gets a reply from @AirtelIndia handle directing the user to a link where a user need to enter his details for SIM delivery. So what are you waiting for, tweet and get on-boarded to the high-speed Airtel 4G network.
