New Delhi- Bharti Airtel on Thursday said its 5G services have gone live in eight cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Siliguri, Nagpur and Varanasi.
The customer availing 5G services will have to pay as per their existing 4G plan, it said.
“Airtel has been at the forefront of India’s telecom revolution for the last 27 years. Today marks one more step in our journey as we build out the finest network to deliver the best experience for our customers.
“For us, our customers are at the core of everything we do. Our solution will therefore work on any 5G handset and the existing SIM that customers have,” Bharti Airtel Managing Director and CEO Gopal Vittal said in a statement.
Bharti Enterprises Founder and Chairman Sunil Mittal had announced launch of 5G service in 8 cities on October 1.
A company spokesperson said that customer will be able to avail the services as per their 4G plan.
Airtel subscribers getting 5G signals in their area can switch to 5G but if they find that 5G is consuming high data than can switch back to 4G network.
“Access to 5G is optional,” the spokesperson said. (PTI)
