Airtel 5G Plus is already live in several cities of the country, with the telecom operator promising to have the service available across India by December this year. It has now come to light that Airtel is offering its consumers unlimited 5G data, provided they are on a prepaid plan valued at Rs 239 or higher.
The revelation was first made by Ishan Agarwal, who points out that Jio customers have enjoyed this benefit for a while. All Airtel customers can unlock this benefit through the Airtel Thanks app. Users on an unsupported phone will be greeted with an error message while trying to claim unlimited 5G data.

Happy to see that Airtel users in India can now claim Unlimited 5G data (only if they have a plan above ₹239). Was kinda jealous of Jio ppl lol. Checked on Airtel app & I was easily able to claim & use.
Do let me know if you’re able to claim & have started using! #Airtel5GPlus pic.twitter.com/v7IUSKIo4C

What is Airtel 5G Plus?
It’s Airtel’s dedicated 5G network for India, operating on 900 MHz (n8), 1800 MHz (n3), 2100 MHz (n1), 3300 MHz (n78), and 26 GHz (n258) frequencies. To hype up the arrival of Airtel 5G Plus, the company even set up 5G experience zones across several parts of India, giving users a first-hand experience of blazing-fast speeds.
Speeds will differ on a number of factors, such as your location from the nearest tower, obstructions on the path, and many others. But it’s safe to say that Airtel 5G Plus is a considerable upgrade from 4G LTE.
