I wish it was good news for me as well. I followed up with Airtel on Twitter and later by Calling. They said FTTH is not available in my place (near Pune).
Spoke with Idea Broadband who has Wireless broadband but not FTTH at my place, they said they would soon upgrade Wireless network to FTTH.
But it seems JIO would win race over Airtel/Idea, and I would have to go for it.

I've been on Airtel's ill-fated vdsl installation for as long as I can remember, and my local engineer has no good news for FTTH even though Jio already started their implementation with overhead cables.

I sure hope Airtel does something.

Airtel should target Tier 2 cities rather than metros. There are already many local players/big players in cities like Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai etc. There are more chances for Airtel to snap up customers in these cities as compared to metros.

Having said that I think JIO will beat Airtel to it, by quite a margin.

My area has Jio FTTH, Hathway,Excitel and also MTNL FTTH in certain apartments complexes, still don't see any urgency from Airtel to switch to FTTH

Airtel broadband doesn't even have decent coverage, it's too much to expect from them giving fiber connections.

@Shubham Well actually they are the second biggest ISP on customer base alone. These class A ISPs like BSNL/Airtel might have shitty internet with copper lines but they certainly do have better coverage esp in tier 2 cities, towns and rural areas.
