Airtel Announces its Largest 5G Rollout in 125 Cities


Airtel India has announced its ultra-fast 5G services in 125 cities today. Airtel 5G Plus service is now available to customers in over 265 cities in the country. We are not sure when this launch will happen for Africa and the other continents they have a presence in.

Airtel 5G Plus promises three compelling advantages for customers. First, it runs on technology with the widest acceptance in the world with the most developed ecosystem. This ensures that all 5G smartphones in India seamlessly work on the Airtel network. Second, the company promises to deliver the best experience – between 20 to 30 times higher speeds than today- with brilliant voice experience and super-fast call connection.

Finally, Airtel 5G Plus network will also be kinder to the environment with its special power reduction solution. Powered by the reliable Airtel network infrastructure, Airtel 5G Plus will provide superfast access to High-Definition video streaming, gaming, multiple chatting, instant photo uploading, and more.

Commenting on the launch, Randeep Sekhon, CTO of Bharti Airtel, said, “5G has revolutionized the world of the internet, ushering a new era of connectivity and communications that will prove to be a game-changer for the country. At Airtel, we remain committed to delivering the highest network and service quality to our customers as we roll out 125 more cities today. Airtel was the first in the country to offer 5G services in October 2022, and today’s mega launch is our promise to connect every Airtel customer in the country with ultra-fast Airtel 5G Plus. Our 5G rollout will cover all towns and key rural areas by March 2024.”

Airtel 5G Plus service availability will continue to rapidly expand – including service in all towns and villages in the country soon – as the company is working towards offering nationwide coverage. Airtel is now offering its 5G services in every major city, from the upper northern city of Jammu to the southern tip of Kanyakumari.

In the last year, Airtel has demonstrated the power of 5G with a host of powerful use cases that will change how customers lead their lives and do business. From India’s first live 5G network in Hyderabad to India’s first private 5G network at the BOSCH facility in Bengaluru to partnering with Mahindra & Mahindra to make its Chakan manufacturing facility, India’s first 5G enabled auto manufacturing unit, Airtel has been at the forefront of 5G innovation.
