Airtel has launched it’s fixed wireless broadband service based on it’s 5G network called airfiber service. Customer will get brand new 5G modem with wifi 6 inbuilt for refundable deposit of ₹2500 only.

In ₹799 one get unlimited 5G data for now however one needs to pay 6month in advance though airtel is providing 7.5% discount for the advance payment. So one pays ₹4435+gst+2500=₹7733 initially to opt for Airtel Airfiber.

After that every 6 months ₹5233 need to be paid which comes to effective rental of ₹872 per month for unlimited 5G. Airtel hasn’t mentioned any fup usage policy for now. Also expect lower speeds in evening time. This model will most probably work on Airtel’s n78 band which is 3600mhz so expect lower coverage.

Currently available in selected areas of Mumbai and Delhi so not available everywhere. This can be called beta launch by Airtel just taking the first mover advantage. They will change their plans a lot later according to Jio airfiber launch which is rumored to be using mm wave for fixed broadband service.

5G, or fifth-generation wireless technology, is the latest standard for mobile and wireless communication. It represents a significant advancement over its predecessor, 4G (LTE), in terms of speed, capacity, and capabilities. Here are some key features and aspects of 5G:

  1. Faster Speeds: 5G offers significantly faster data speeds compared to 4G. It can provide download speeds of up to 20 Gbps, which is about 20 times faster than 4G.
  2. Low Latency: 5G networks have extremely low latency, often in the millisecond range. This low latency is crucial for applications that require real-time communication, such as online gaming, autonomous vehicles, and remote surgery.
  3. Increased Capacity: 5G networks have the ability to handle a much larger number of devices simultaneously. This is essential for the growing number of IoT (Internet of Things) devices and smart city applications.
  4. Improved Connectivity: 5G networks use higher-frequency radio waves, including millimeter waves (mmWave), to transmit data. These higher frequencies allow for more data to be transmitted, but they have shorter range and are more easily blocked by obstacles. To overcome this, 5G networks use a dense network of small cell towers, which provides better connectivity in urban areas.
  5. Network Slicing: 5G allows for network slicing, which means that the same physical network can be divided into multiple virtual networks to serve different purposes. This enables customization of network services for specific applications, such as industrial automation, healthcare, or entertainment.
  6. Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB): One of the primary use cases for 5G is to provide faster and more reliable internet access to mobile devices. This will enable high-definition streaming, virtual reality experiences, and other data-intensive applications on smartphones and tablets.
  7. Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communication (URLLC): 5G also caters to applications that require ultra-reliable and low-latency communication, such as autonomous vehicles and remote surgery. These applications demand near-instantaneous data transfer with high reliability.
  8. Massive Machine Type Communication (mMTC): 5G is designed to support a vast number of IoT devices, from smart home appliances to sensors in industrial settings. mMTC capabilities enable efficient and widespread connectivity for these devices.
  9. Security: 5G networks incorporate improved security features to protect against various threats, including encryption enhancements and better authentication mechanisms.
  10. Global Deployment: 5G is being rolled out worldwide, with many countries and mobile network operators investing in infrastructure to support this technology.

It’s important to note that the deployment of 5G networks is an ongoing process, and its availability and performance may vary from one region to another. As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, 5G was rapidly expanding, and it’s likely that more advancements and innovations have occurred since then.
