Airtel 5G Plus services have been launched for three cities in Rajasthan - Jaipur, Udaipur and Kota. All the mentioned three cities have a large population, and now they can access 5G networks for no additional cost if they are already using Airtel's 4G services. With this launch, Airtel has expanded the reach of its 5G to a total of 42 cities. Airtel's 5G Plus network is 5G NSA (non-standalone) and will work on most of the 5G smartphones in the Indian market today. Airtel will not launch 5G tariffs at a high premium because the telco is worried that it will discourage consumers from subscribing to 5G services. So, 5G tariffs, whenever it comes, would be available at a very slightly higher price point than 4G.
