Later, other telecom operators -- Reliance Jio and Vodafone Idea -- followed suit. Meanwhile, Airtel said it has launched 5G services in Guwahati. As per Rajnish Verma, CEO, Bharti Airtel, Assam and North East Airtel customers can now experience an ultra-fast network and enjoy speeds up to 20-30 times faster than the current 4G speeds.
