Nagpur: Bharti Airtel (“Airtel”), India’s leading telecommunications service provider today announced the deployment of its cutting-edge Airtel 5G Plus service at Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar International Airport Nagpur, making it the second airport in the state to enjoy ultrafast 5G service. The new terminal in Bengaluru, Pune and Varanasi are the other three airports that have Airtel 5G Plus.
Nagpur was one amongst the first 8 cities in the country to get the Airtel 5G Plus service. The services are currently available at Ganesh Path, Nehru Nagar, Subhash Nagar, Hanuman Nagar, CA road and few other locations. Airtel is augmenting its network further to make its services available across the city in due course of time.
Customers flying in and out of the Orange City can enjoy high speed Airtel 5G Plus across the airport terminal.
