At Airtel, we remain committed to delivering the highest quality of network and service to our customers as we roll out 125 more cities today,” said Randeep Sekhon, CTO, Bharti Airtel.
“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 is on track to cover all towns and key rural areas by March 2024,” he added.
Airtel also said that the 5G Plus service availability will continue to expand rapidly in all towns and villages in the country as the company is working towards offering nationwide coverage. Further, the telco claims that it is offering 5G Plus services in every major city in India.
