Airtel recently confirmed that it will launch 5G services as early as this month with a wider rollout planned for early 2024.

Similar to the rollout of 4G services a few years back, the telcos will offer 5G services in a phased manner. Initially, they will offer the next-gen wireless communication services in select cities on a pilot basis and will expand the same to other areas later.

Users in any of these cities are likely to experience 5G services in the coming days or weeks. Recent reports suggest that Vi is on the verge of rolling out 5G in the Delhi-NCR circle and is urging customers to upgrade to a 5G SIM card soon.
