Bharti Airtel, India's second-largest telecom operator, has launched 5G plus network services at the Lal Bahadur Shastri International airport, Varanasi. The announcement from the telco was made just a few minutes ago. This is the third airport that Airtel has reached with its 5G network services. The other two airports are - Bengaluru's new Terminal 2 and Pune Airport. Bharti Airtel is moving fast with its 5G network rollout and seems to be specifically targeting the airports. A few weeks back, the telco announced that within a span of 30 days, its 5G network saw more than a million unique users latching to it.
Airtel users in Varanasi's Lal Bahadur Shastri International airport would just need a 5G-enabled smartphone which supports Airtel's 5G, and they can experience the speed of 5G that Airtel's networks deliver. Right now, Airtel has not announced any special tariffs for 5G. Users on the 4G plans with 4G SIMs can directly experience 5G from Airtel.
