Airtel also said it is powering the JLF venue with its 5G networks, where thousands of attendees would be present. JLF is a five-day event where top names from the literature world will be present.

Airtel 5G Plus
To use 5G, Airtel users don't need to change their SIM if they already own a 4G SIM with an active plan. But users having legacy SIMs for 2G/3G services would have to upgrade to a 4G SIM which is 5G ready as well. Existing data plans will work on 5G Plus until roll-out is complete and Airtel 5G Plus now works on all Android and Apple supported 5G devices.
Airtel 5G Plus in Jaipur Literature Festival
Any attendee of the event with an Airtel 4G SIM and an active plan would be able to latch on to the telco's 5G networks if he/she owns a 5G phone that supports 5G NSA (non-standalone). Airtel is deploying 5G NSA throughout India, and most of the 5G smartphones in the market already support it. With Airtel 5G Plus, super-fast download speeds are possible. Airtel customers on 5G can enjoy 20 to 30 times faster download speeds than customers on the 4G networks.
Marut Dilawari, CEO of Bharti Airtel, Rajasthan, said that the launch of Airtel 5G is special because it is powering the Jaipur Literature Festival. Attendees of the event would be quickly able to upload all the images and videos on their social media platforms inside the venue because of 5G.
