Airtel 5G Plus has been officially launched in eight cities in India, including Chennai, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangaluru, Delhi, Nagpur, Siliguri, and Varanasi. With this new generation of networks, Airtel keeps the cost the same as that of the 4G data plans.
Airtel users in such regions may wonder whether to switch to obtain faster speeds. You need to ensure that the smartphone is supported by Airtel’s 5G network officially. As you know, even if you have a 5G smartphone, you need proper 5G band support to use the network seamlessly across supported regions. However, some smartphones might need a software update to support 5G.
