Leading telecom firm Bharti Airtel on Friday launched its 5G services in Kozhikode, Thiruvananthapuram and Thrissur. The company mentioned in a statement that its 5G services are already live in Kochi.
Airtel 5G Plus services will be available to customers in a phased manner as the company continues to construct its network and complete the roll-out.
