Airtel customers can now experience ultrafast network and enjoy speeds upto 20-30 times faster than the current 4G speeds. We are in the process of lighting up the entire city which will allow customers to enjoy superfast access to High-definition video streaming, gaming, multiple chatting, instant uploading of photos and more.”
Airtel showcased the power of its 5G networks at the India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2022 by powering several use cases. Now, the customers have also started sharing their experience of Airtel's 5G Plus on social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter and More. Airtel is the only telecom operator in India that has launched 5G commercially. Reliance Jio has launched 5G, but it is not a commercial launch, it is just a beta phase where the company is offering customers 5G data for free, but not everyone can get it as it is offered on an invite only basis.
