Airtel is working with leading global equipment manufacturers to deploy a state-of-the-art 5G network in India. Airtel 5G will also have low latency, which is critical for applications such as autonomous vehicles and remote surgery. The 5G network will use spectrum in the 3.5 GHz band, which is globally recognized for 5G deployments. Airtel has already deployed over 1 million km of optical fiber across India as part of its extensive network infrastructure. This will form the backbone of Airtel’s 5G network and ensure seamless coverage and capacity.
This latest generation technology will enable India to leapfrog to the forefront of the global digital economy and provide a transformative experience for users. The 5G network will initially be available in select cities across India, with plans to roll out nationwide in the coming months. Furthermore, the government is working to launch 5G in 200 cities over the next six months, said telecom minister Ashwini Vaishnaw.
