Airtel was the first to offer 5G services in October 2022, and today’s mega launch is our promise to connect every Airtel customer in the country with ultra-fast Airtel 5G Plus. We have already covered 500 cities and are adding 30 to 40 cities every single day. By September of 2023, we expect to expand our 5G footprint to all of urban India.”
The launch of Airtel 5G Plus is expected to bring significant benefits to various sectors, including healthcare, education, and manufacturing, as well as enhancing the overall user experience for Airtel customers.
