On Wednesday, Bharti Airtel ("Airtel"), one of India's leading telecommunications company, announced the rollout of its cutting-edge Airtel 5G Plus service at Nagpur's Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar International Airport in a press release.  The announcement makes it the second airport in the state to have access to lightning-fast 5G service.

The release stated, that the Airtel 5G Plus was made available in Nagpur, making it one of the country's first 8 cities to have the service. Ganesh Path, Nehru Nagar, Subhash Nagar, Hanuman Nagar, CA Road, among a few other places, are currently the locations where the services are offered. In order to eventually offer its services throughout the entire city, Airtel is currently expanding its network.
