Tag Archive: Fast Internet



When I saw the word ‘Impact’ for the TataZicaMarathon, I knew exactly what I had to write about. It’s the impact of the one thing none of us can probably live without, the Internet. We live in a nation that accommodates over 1.2 billion people… and that is… a lot! So we are bound to have multiple languages, multiple cultures, multiple cuisines and most of all, multiple opinions. No matter if it’s politics or sports or any other random topic, you can always find a million different opinions and viewpoints that differ enough with each other to start a civil war.

And one such hot debate was recently sparked over net neutrality. And it reached, or should I say is currently at, its pinnacle after Facebook announcing the Freebasics. Now I’m not going to tell you my views on this matter, and neither am I going to put forward more stats for you to wonder, but one thing this whole controversy told us was how our whole internet community can come together if it’s for something that affects all of us.

The same people who had been calling each other names over petty political matters, the same people who didn’t agree with each other over matters like which Football club is better, were all standing together against the internet giant because they didn’t want partiality when it comes to the internet. Millions of emails were sent, thousands of petitions launched, and all this was done in a matter of weeks to make sure that they listen to us.

Again, I’d not say who was write in this matter, the public, or Facebook or the government, but one thing is for sure, the public used the internet, to save the internet. It was social media that brought us all together to make sure that something which a majority of us doesn’t want or isn’t okay with, shouldn’t happen.

I’m sure this matter is multilayered and will have a lot of twists and turns before it comes to a conclusion, but the lesson it taught us was the impact of the internet and how important a tool it has become for us. There is a lot of technology we’re yet to uncover, yet to explore, there’s so much that we’ll see in the coming ages… but this gift in the form of internet is like the gift our mankind got when we discovered Fire, or invented the wheel. It is needless to say that the internet is the most widely used mode of communication today, and it beats the rest by a wide margin.

But as they say, with great power comes great responsibility. So let’s all use the internet as a strength, but not exploit it, shall we? 🙂

This blog post is inspired by the blogging marathon hosted on IndiBlogger for the launch of the #Fantastico Zica from Tata Motors. You can  apply for a test drive of the hatchback Zica today.

I remember how some time back, when anybody was comparing the features online to buy a new phone, we used to laugh at people who bought an expensive phone just because it had 4G compatibility.  Personally, I never understood the use of buying a 4G enabled phone, when we didn’t even have the service in our country. But obviously, we were a bit naive in thinking so. I was pleasantly surprised when I first heard about Airtel launching the 4G services nationwide. You can check out everything about it here.

To give you a bit of a context, I’m a 25-year-old working male, and my life is pretty much running on the Internet. And it’s not just at home, but everywhere that I need to stay connected. This obviously includes having a fast data connection in my phone. And it’s not true just for me, but for my parents and siblings too. In short, I can say that almost everyone in today’s world needs a fast data connection. And with my past experiences with Airtel, I’m pretty sure that Airtel 4G would be just as great, in fact, a refreshing change over the previous internet plans.

And this is just the beginning of it. If you look at this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpHZ3sXY6B8), you’ll realize how exciting the new Airtel 4G is.

To make sure that your transition to Airtel 4G is smooth and hassle free, Airtel has done everything it can. All you need to switch to 4G is a device that supports 4G, a 3G data pack and a 4G SIM, which will obviously be delivered at your door step free of charge. You simply have to request for the SIM on the Airtel Website.

I’m sure you’re all set to dive into the world of amazing speeds and state of the art tech. If there’s one doubt that might still be there in your mind, it’s about the money, did I guess that right? So let me put that to an end right here, Airtel 4G won’t be expensive like many people assume it to be, it will be available to you at the same price as 3G. Cool, isn’t it?

So don’t let me hold you back any further, log on to www.airtel.in/4G and clear away all your doubts. Go 4G!
