Airtel’s new 4G campaign highlights the wide reach of its network

Over the last few months the ubiquitous Airtel girl has become synonymous with the launch of 4G in the country. Loved, trolled, debated and discussed in equal measure she has gone on to become one of the highly salient brand advocates in recent times. 

It is a bright, brave campaign from a brand of this stature and drives home the underlying message that Airtel 4G is not only fast but available in more parts of the country than one would think.

Commenting on the new campaign, Srinivasan Gopalan, Director – Consumer Business, Bharti Airtel (India & SA) says, “Airtel has established a clear leadership in the 4G category, both in terms of network presence and brand communication. Sasha has become the face of 4G in India and we believe that the new campaign, which communicates the unmatched reach of Airtel’s 4G network, will further strengthen our data proposition and help us build on our first mover advantage.”

Expert view:

Speaking about the Airtel 4G campaign, Agnello Dias, Chief Creative Officer of Taproot Dentsu said, “We have seen a lot of the Airtel 4G girl in recent times. And she’s powerfully built 4G association with Airtel. We thought it would be great if we could take a cheeky look at her ubiquity. So this time instead of continuously advocating the brand, we have taken a different spin on her character while driving home a strong network message.”
