Airtel has launched its 5G service in one more city. Andhra Pradesh’s major port city Vizag, also known as Visakhapatnam, is now covered by Airtel 5G Plus service. Customers in select city locations can start using 5G immediately, provided they have a compatible device. Airtel said that the 5G rollout in Vizag will happen in a phased manner, which means some locations will get service later.
Airtel 5G Plus service will be available free of cost to customers – both prepaid and postpaid. Services are currently operational at Dwarkanagar, Beach Road, Dhaba Garden, Maddilapalem, Waltair Uplands, Poorna Market, Gajuwaka Jn, MVP Colony, Ramnagar, Railway Station Road, Teneti Nagar and few other places in Visakhapatnam or Vizag. The company said that the remaining locations within the city will get the coverage in the coming weeks.
Airtel said that 5G will help customers enjoy high-definition video streaming, access low latency gaming, upload high-size photos and videos, and run multiple devices at the same time. Apart from these use cases, Airtel 5G Plus will improve facilities in the education, healthcare, manufacturing, agriculture, mobility and logistics sectors.
Commenting on the launch of Airtel 5G Plus in Vizag, Shivan Bhargava, Chief Executive Officer, Bharti Airtel, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana said, “I am thrilled to announce the launch of Airtel 5G Plus in Vizag. Airtel customers can now experience ultrafast network and enjoy speeds up to 20-30 times faster than existing 4G speeds.
With the rollout of Airtel 5G Plus in Vizag, Airtel now has 5G services in 18 cities. The company has recently launched 5G services in Shimla, Imphal, Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad.
