Band 3+40 and intraband CA on band 40. Don’t expect more. You can see intraband CA on band 3 as well once Airtel and Void deploys it wherever they have 20Mhz.

It ‘shows’ 4G+ sign on Band 3,5 and 40 after Pie update earlier it was showing 4G+ only on band 3.

But I think it is not providing CA on band 5 although the 4G+ sign is there.

I have done a simultaneous speed test between Moto G6 and Poco F1 with both phones on Band 5 4G+.
While Moto G6 gives speed around 16-20 Mbps Poco hardly reaches 1 Mbps.

Airtel speeds are flawless on Poco F1. I have seen speeds upto 90Mbps during daytime.

But where is the data… What will you do with 90mbps and 1 gb data in 169

Jio provides more than enough data but below average speeds. Awesome HD calling experience because almost everyone has a Jio number today.

Airtel gives better speed but lesser data compared to Jio. Normal to Poor call quality.

One is free to choose the perfect mix.
I am not recharging my Airtel Number currently.
