Comprehensive Network Rollout
Airtel’s commitment to providing seamless services spans diverse landscapes, reaching from the lush forests of the Western Ghats in Kodagu to the historic city of Mysuru, the bustling tech hub of Bengaluru, and the pristine beaches of Mangaluru. The company has accelerated its 5G rollout, including bringing iconic sites like the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hampi and the highest peak in Karnataka, Mullayanagiri in Chikmagalur, onto the digital superhighway.
