Airtel 5G Plus service is coming to 8 cities in India

Airtel announced its 5G network on October 1 and now it has shared more details about its availability, plans and more.

Airtel 5G Plus service is finally available for its customers and the operator has confirmed that 8 cities are getting its 5G service for now. Airtel subscribers in Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Nagpur among others can experience the 5G network using their existing SIM card and if they already have a 5G-enabled smartphone that supports Indian 5G bands.

The 5G Plus moniker just seems like a term used by the telco for its marketing push, and others are expected to make such changes to differentiate themselves from the rivals.

Airtel also has mentioned that the 5G service can be used with the same 4G data plans right now, which is likely to change once the network is widely available in the country. Airtel claims its 5G Plus service promises 30 times faster data speed than what its subscribers are using now. It also vouches for a top-notch voice-calling experience.


It is interesting that Airtel has not announced any new plans for its 5G service, and instead letting people use it with their existing plans. Having said that, with a faster 5G speed for downloads and streaming, you are bound to exhaust your quota of data quicker than before.

This way Airtel gets a better idea of how its 5G service will perform in the long run and also who is willing to spend extra to avail the high-speed connectivity network from Airtel.
