All You Need To Know About Airtel 5G Services

The launch of Airtel’s 5G services in India has been officially confirmed. Initially, only a few cities would have access to Airtel 5G Plus. However, the 5G services will eventually spread to other areas of the country. The 8 cities are Delhi, Mumbai, Varanasi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Nagpur, Siliguri, and Bangalore. Several reports claim that the Airtel SIM supports 5G and that current customers don’t have to replace their SIM. The same Airtel recharge and postpaid plans in 4G can be used with the 5G service, although this will likely change once the network is broadly accessible throughout the nation.

But individuals who have highly outdated Airtel SIMs or who want to have a new Airtel connection would need to purchase a new SIM. Even users who are switching from other telecom networks to Airtel will receive a new SIM card that supports both 4G and 5G.
