Meanwhile, Gopal Vitthal, CEO and MD of Bharti Airtel re-iterated that the telecom sector needs large investment, and said in the last two years, investment amount has superseded investments from the last 20 years. Since then, the other incumbents have invested heavily in a bid to counter Jio's growing presence.

The data transfer in 5G technology has latency or gap of 1 millisecond (ms) compared to 30 ms in case of 4G technology. In a statement, Airtel has announced that, initially, it will implement the new technology in Bangalore and Kolkata, and later expand to other parts of the country.
