Bharti Airtel has announced the launch of its new and fastest 5G services in Patna (Bihar) starting today itself. The 5G services from the telecom are currently operational at Patna Sahib Gurudwara, Patna Railway Station, Dak Bungalow, Maurya Lok, Bailey Road, Boring Road, City Centre Mall, Patliputra Industrial Area and a few other select locations.
Airtel has said that it will augment its network by making its services available across the city in due course of time.
"Airtel customers can now experience ultrafast network and enjoy speeds up to 20-30 times faster than the current 4G speeds. We are in the process of lighting up the entire city which will allow customers to enjoy superfast access to High-definition video streaming, gaming, multiple chatting, instant uploading of photos and more," said Anupam Arora, CEO of Bharti Airtel, Bihar, Jharkhand and Odisha.
Airtel 5G Plus services will 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 a high-speed Airtel 5G Plus network at no extra cost until the rollout is more widespread.
Last week, Airtel launched its 5G services in Guwahati.
5G services have also kicked off in Mumbai, Delhi, Gurugram, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chennai, Siliguri, Varanasi and Nagpur.
Earlier this month, Bharti Airtel said it crossed the one million unique 5G user mark on its network, as the telecom operator rolls out 5G services in a phased manner.
There will be no need to change the SIM as the existing Airtel 4G SIM is 5G enabled.
