Airtel on Thursday announced the launch of its 5G services in Visakhapatnam. The New Delhi-headquartered firm said Airtel 5G Plus services would be available to customers in a phased manner as the company continues to construct its network and complete the rollout. Customers with 5G-enabled devices will enjoy high-speed Airtel 5G Plus network at no extra cost until the rollout is more widespread, Airtel said in a statement.
Currently operational at Dwarkanagar, Beach Road, Dhaba gardens, Maddilapalem, Waltair Uplands, Purna Market, Gajuwaka JN, MVP Colony, Ramnagar, Railway station road, Tenneti Nagar and a few other locations, Airtel will augment its network making its services available across the city in due course of time.
