Bharti Airtel will be investing 2000 crore over three years in the launch of various digital offerings even as the telco gears up to launch Voice over LTE (VoLTE) across the country by the end of this year.

Airtel has announced a few initiatives like allowing postpaid customers to carry forward their unused data to the next billing cycle, pooling of postpaid plan within a family, and providing protection against damage for smartphones. As part of Project Next, Airtel will improve its in-store experience by redesigning over 2500 stores across the country. The company's two next-gen stores are already live in Gurugram.
