Airtel 5G Plus: How to Activate, List of Compatible Devices

A few days back, PM Narendra Modi launched 5G services in India at the Indian Mobile Congress (IMC) 2022. The announcement was soon followed by the launch of Airtel's 5G Plus services in the country. While Airtel has launched its 5G services in eight cities initially, it has assured that all parts of the country will get 5G coverage by March 2023.


With the next-gen network services, Airtel promises to deliver up to 30x faster downloads than 4G. It is touted that one can download a movie in seconds, experience smooth, new-age gaming, watch 4K videos without buffering and enjoy AR and VR content.

How to Activate Airtel 5G Plus Service?

Notably, Airtel uses NSA (non-standalone) 5G mode, which works with most smartphones. The existing Airtel 4G SIM card will be switched to 5G automatically and there is no need to upgrade to a 5G SIM card. All that subscribers have to do is go to the Settings tab and Connections or Mobile Network and choose the 5G network mode to experience Airtel 5G services. Some OEMs are pushing a software update to enable the bands supporting 5G.
