Commenting on its 10 lakh unique 5G users milestone, Randeep Sekhon, Bharti Airtel CTO, said in a press statement: “These are early days but the response from customers has been very encouraging. Our network is being built every day even as all 5G devices are now capable of working on the Airtel 5G Plus network barring a few exceptions which should also be done in the coming weeks. We will continue to advance our network with a vision to connect the entire country.”
