Bharti Airtel added the highest number of wireless subscribers in June, adding 7.93 lakh subscribers, taking its total subscriber base to 36.29 crore. The company has already paid Rs 8,312 crore to the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) for spectrum rights acquired by the company in the recently concluded 5G auction.

Bharti Airtel aims to have a full rollout of 5G services across the country by March 2024, Chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal said on Saturday.

Speaking at the inaugural session of the India Mobile Congress in New Delhi, the Chairman of Bharti Enterprises announced the launch of 5G services in eight Indian cities including New Delhi, Mumbai, Varanasi and Bangalore.

“The arrival of 5G services will open up new realms of opportunity for Indians. Rural India, which may have felt disadvantaged in the past, will now thrive,” he said.

Mittal also hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s contribution to realizing this 5G vision, saying the country is proud and lucky to have a leader who understands the technology well.

“It is the Prime Minister’s vision of digital India that has enabled the country to survive the pandemic. Indian digital media has enabled the country not to stop for a single minute due to lockdowns,” said Mittal to the public.

Sunil Bharti Mittal made a foray into the telecommunications space when he discovered a push-button telephone in Taiwan in October 1982. He pointed out that after four decades in the telecommunications industry, Airtel will now serve the country with 5G services. Mittal also praised the Prime Minister for his efforts to make India a manufacturing hub through Make in India. “Never in my life did I think that India would be able to have manufacturing, especially in electronics. But today it is becoming a reality,” he said.

“Airtel has prepaid four years of spectrum fees for 2022. The company believes that this upfront payment, together with the spectrum fee moratorium and AGR-related payments for four years, will free up cash flow future and will enable Airtel to dedicate resources to a determined focus on rolling out 5G,” the company said last month.
