Airtel was followed by Jio a few days later. However, Vi the third-largest network provider in India has not announced its plans for a 5G rollout yet.

Airtel offers 5G in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Siliguri, Nagpur, Varanasi, Panipat, Gurugram, Guwahati and Patna. Whereas, Jio 5G is available in Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Kolkata, Varanasi, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Pune, Nathdwara and Gujarat.
