Airtel celebrates 1.2 million 5G customers in Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh

Bharti Airtel ("Airtel"), one of India's leading telecommunications service providers, today announced that it has 1.2 million customers enjoying 5G service in the state of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh. The Company has successfully deployed 5G service across all cities and districts in Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh reflecting a promising shift towards offering nextgeneration mobile connectivity.

Airtel has registered a significant increase in 5G users in the past 6 months in Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh. The Company's expansive network deployment has effectively extended its services across the entire state, greatly simplifying the process for customers to embrace 5G. From the iconic architectural marvels of Mubarak Mandi Palace, to the renowned pilgrimage site of Vaishno Devi Temple, and the breathtaking vistas of tourist hotspots like Patnitop, Dal Lake, Zanskar Valley, Pangong Lake, Sangam, Magnetic Hill, Hall of Fame, Diskit and Gulmarg, Airtel continues to complete its rollout across Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh.

Our tireless efforts are to keep our customers consistently connected to the state's fastest, most reliable, and cutting-edge network."

The rapid deployment and adoption of 5G in the country is due to multiple factors including rapid network enhancement, accelerated 5G rollout and increasing availability of 5G devices. In order to make affordable devices accessible to users, Airtel also collaborated with Poco to offer sub10K 5G smartphones, which helped to grow its overall 5G user base in the country. Retail expansion in the region to increase physical format of stores has further augmented consumer connect to help customers upgrade conveniently to 5G service.
