Access Airtel 5G Plus on Your Smartphone

Previously, many consumers fell prey to a scam regarding 5G upgradation on smartphones. Several scammers urged people to buy new SIM cards to upgrade from 4G to 5G services. However, Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio confirmed that no SIM card upgradation is required.

Simply put, you don't need a new SIM card to experience 5G on your smartphone. To experience Airtel 5G Plus, you first require an Airtel SIM card with a data pack. You will also need a 5G-supporting smartphone to experience the next-gen data speed.

Presently, Airtel and Jio are head-to-head in competition for rolling out 5G services. Airtel is offering 5G services at 4G tariffs, making it competitive. Jio is also following the same, winning over users countrywide.
