Watch: Airtel 5G speed test across Delhi-NCR, here are the highest and lowest recorded 5G speeds

Here's how the Airtel 5G fares against Airtel 4G network in Delhi NCR.

Highlights
  • We tested Airtel 5G network at various places in Delhi NCR.
  • The lowest Airtel 5G in our testing was 130Mbps at Mahipalpur, New Delhi.
  • The highest speed of Airtel 5G that we witnessed was 620Mbps. 

Airtel’s 5G Plus network has undergone our testing procedure. During this test, our video team members visited various places in Delhi NCR and did a quick speed test of Airtel 5G in as many places as possible. To keep the test as fair as possible, both team members used the same postpaid Airtel 5G SIM card inside a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. After arriving at each location, Airtel 5G network passed through two rounds of our test: an internet speed test and downloading a data-heavy game. The speed test application of choice is the “FAST Speed Test” app, and the game of choice is “DEAD TRIGGER 2: Zombie Games” with over 500MB download size.
