Airtel 5G Plus
Airtel 5G Plus doesn’t require users to change their SIM as they can continue with the existing SIM card. The telecom giant promises to deliver up to 30 hours at higher speeds compared to 4G and is also said to offer a fast call connection. Airtel says the network has less carbon emission over data capacity.
The telecom giant plans to complete the 5G rollout in India by March 2024, covering all cities and towns. In comparison, Jio promises to finish the rollout by December 2023. Besides having 5G-supported handsets, OEMs need to push 5G support through software. Motorola, OPPO, OnePlus and other brands are pushing the required update already. Airtel recently announced that it managed to secure over 10 lakh 5G customers across the country in just 30 days. Apple has started rolling out the update to iOS 16 beta users.
Nidhi Lauria, CEO, of Bharti Airtel, Delhi – NCR said, “I am thrilled to announce the launch of Airtel 5G Plus in Gurugram. Airtel customers can now experience ultrafast networks and enjoy speeds up to 20-30 times faster than the current 4G speeds. We are in the process of lighting 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.”
