“Having demonstrated India’s first 5G network and also the first 5G cloud gaming experience, Airtel is proud to have also conducted the nation’s first 5G trial in rural geography. 5G will be a transformational technology when it comes to delivering broadband coverage to the last mile through use cases like FWA and contribute to a more inclusive digital economy. Airtel will continue to be at the forefront of 5G technology and bring more India relevant use cases through partnerships such as the one with Ericsson.”

Naresh Asija, the Vice President of Nokia says that Airtel’s 5G trial in the 700 MHz band will allow companies to provide cost-effective broadband services in remote areas where it is difficult to set up a decent network infrastructure. “Nokia is at the forefront in the development of the global 5G ecosystem, and we look forward to supporting Airtel on its 5G journey,” adds Asija.

The stock hit an intraday high of Rs. 781.90 and an intraday low of 756.00. The net turnover during the day was Rs. 554479511.00. With the right pricing of 5G spectrum in the upcoming auctions, India can unlock the digital dividend and build a truly connected society with broadband for all
