I experienced Airtel’s 4G speed couple of years ago. It was giving out less than 64 kbps (yes, lower than dial up). So I’m sure this 5G speeds will be insanely better, like 256 kbps at least.

Marketing gimmick???
How can they deploy 5G on commercial wavelength when spectrum is yet to be auctioned

Company that wants(ed) to delay the 5G spectrum auction, now all of a sudden is going around advertising it is ready for 5G. Something is fishy. Big time.
Looks like Jio’s 5G is coming sooner than expected. wink

They said demonstrated so must be tested over the small scale only.
Must a gimmick as airtel can’t be trusted on these.

Airtel renamed 4G as 5G, as everything is possible in India.

Modi hai toh sab kuch munkin hai.

The demonstration of live 5G service in Hyderabad was conducted over an existing liberalised spectrum in the 1800 MHz band.

“Using a first of its kind, dynamic spectrum sharing, Airtel seamlessly operated 5G and 4G concurrently within the same spectrum block,” Airtel said.

These d-bags say 512 kbps is broadband and oppose changing it. Forget 5g.

As end user you will never know if it is really 5G or just 4G rebranded…..dynamic spectrum allocation is again nothing new. ..Airtel has just 21.4 MHz of spectrum in 1800Mhz…such tiny spectrum shared between 4G/5G(if their claim is true)…one can imagine the end user performance.

In airtel we can control how UCCs are blocked… The preferences chosen will become effective in 24Hrs
Try login with your number https://dltconnect.airt...n/

Bsnl also have such portal but preference update takes old 7Days.
Jio still taking 7Days with old choices.

No Vi connection to test.


sending SMS to 1909 using old formats is giving errors,
