Launch of Airtel 5G Plus in 8 cities. Airtel stated last week that it would roll out 5G services in additional locations in the months to come at the India Mobile Congress (IMC) in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
The first telecom company to formally launch 5G services in India is Airtel. The Airtel 5G Plus service has now been made available in 8 cities by one of the largest telecom providers in the nation. Reliance Jio is also launching 5G service in 4 cities right now, including Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Varanasi. Until the firm publishes 5G plans in India, Reliance Jio is offering qualified consumers a free 1 Gbps broadband speed and unlimited 5G data through its Jio 5G Welcome Offer.
What exactly is Airtel 5G Plus? Airtel 5G Plus is what Bharti Airtel is calling its 5G service, which is identical to Jio Welcome Offer. Airtel’s 5G services are now being rolled out in 8 cities, although for the time being, just a few people can get the service. Airtel said this week at the India Mobile Congress (IMC) in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, that it would soon begin rolling out 5G services in additional cities. Sunil Mittal, CEO of Bharti Enterprises, underlined that the pan-India rollout will not be finished until March 2024.
Airtel 5G Plus is launched in these 8 cities:
In addition to Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Siliguri, Nagpur, and Varanasi, Airtel 5G Plus is now being rolled out in 8 additional cities. According to the company, the launch of 5G services in these cities is taking place in phases, hence not every resident of these cities with a 5G phone would have access to Airtel 5G service.
Airtel 5G Plus launched: who are the Eligible users and devices.
Customers of Airtel who have a 5G smartphone and reside in one of the 8 cities will be able to use Airtel 5G Plus. Also to be highlighted is the fact that not all 5G handsets in India are compatible with Airtel’s 5G service. OEMs must release OTA updates for 5G handsets in order for them to function properly with Airtel’s 5G services.
Airtel 5G Plus launched: New SIM for 5G or Old SIM?
To use Airtel 5G service on your phone, you do not require a new SIM card. Users would be able to use 5G on their phones if they already have a 4G SIM, the company said earlier.
Airtel 5G Rate Plans in India:
As of now, Airtel has not disclosed any 5G plans. Users can take advantage of Airtel 5G Plus on their current data plans up till 5G plans are introduced and 5G services are made accessible throughout the nation, according to Airtel.
CEO of Bharti Airtel Mr. Gopal Vittal says, “For the past 27 years, Airtel has led the telecommunication revolution in India. As we continue to develop the best network to provide the best experience for our consumers, today represents a new step in the process. For us, the focus of all we do is on our customers. In light of this, our solution works with any 5G device and the client’s current SIM card. Our focus on the customer experience has now been expanded to include a 5G solution that is more ecologically friendly. Airtel 5G Plus is ready to transform how people communicate, live, work, connect, and play for years to come.”
