He said that Airtel has set a new standard in providing data services – other networks provide services at state level, national level and even international level, but what Airtel has done falls under “Interstellar Services”. He also mentioned that ISRO plans to use Airtel services for all its future missions.

Airtel was quick to patent the term “Interstellar Services”. Airtel now plans to send the Airtel girl to International Space Station to shoot the next Airtel 4G advertisement. When asked to comment on ISRO planning to use Airtel 4G in its future missions, Airtel expressed happiness with caution. The Airtel girl told us that Airtel 4G will definitely help ISRO in all its missions till Jupiter, but for anything beyond Jupiter, she will check with her boss and will get back to us.

Airtel girl also targeted all those people who made fun of her and her ads. “All those people who were making fun of me and 4G services are eating humble pie now.”, she said. Airtel has already started airing its ads across the solar system to try and get NASA on board as a client as well.
