The launch of 5G service in India on October 1 signalled the beginning of a new age of mobile devices with very fast internet. Internet capacity and speed will be at least ten times greater on the 5G network than they are on the 4G network.
India has now joined a small group of nations that provide 5G service networks, including the US, Korea, UK, Japan, China, and nations in Europe.
The introduction of 5G technology will significantly improve society. Large data rates, incredibly low latency, and incredibly dependable connection will all be achievable.
Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Madras, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Delhi, Gandhinagar, Gurugram, Hyderabad, Jamnagar, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai, and Pune are a some of the places where this service has begun to operate. As of October 1, the 5G network is now operating. This service was first introduced in India by Reliance Jio, Airtel, and Vodafone-Idea. Verify your old phone’s compatibility with the 5G network first.
In the beginning, Airtel advised its customers to avoid upgrading from their current 4G SIM card to a 5G card and instead to make sure their mobile device supported 5G technology.
Here is how you can check if your phone supports 5G service or not
Users of Airtel should use their mobile device to access Google Play and download the Airtel Thanks app in order to determine whether or not their phone is a 5G phone. When you activate the app after that, the 5G Plus banner will then show up on the home screen. Here, it will say whether or not your phone supports 5G.
A new page will load following the tap on the banner. The business will describe if you live in one of the cities where this service was first made available. The company will also check for 5G compatibility on the mobile device. You will now be asked by Airtel to visit the settings. Click here to access the network tab in the settings and choose 5G service as your preferred network. Once that happens, 5G signals will start to get to phones.
