Bharti Airtel today announced that its 5G network has crossed the 1 million unique customers mark. The telco’s 5G services have been operational in Delhi, Varanasi, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Siliguri, Mumbai, and Nagpur since this month.

Airtel has achieved the milestone in less than 30 days of its commercial launch, even as the network is being built. The 5G services in these cities are being rolled out in a phased manner as Airtel continues to develop its network and complete the rollout.

“These are early days but the response from customers have 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.”

Randeep Sekhon, CTO, Bharti Airtel

The telco started its 5G trials in 2021 and launched 5G commercially this month. Airtel customers with 5G phones can enjoy Airtel 5G Plus on their existing data plans till the rollout is widespread without changing the SIM as the existing Airtel 4G SIM is 5G enabled.
