Airtel 5G unlimited data – How to claim the Airtel 5G offer

Airtel 5G unlimited data

Just like Jio, now Airtel is providing unlimited 5G data to its eligible customers. It is available to all the users with 5G supported handsets and 5G coverage. However, the catch is similar to Jio – You have to have a pack equal or higher than ₹239.

If you have pack lower than ₹239, you still cannot recharge with 5G activation plan like Jio. You ay have to wait for the current plan to get over. Also there is a catch that ₹455 and ₹1799 pack are not eligible for the unlimited 5G data. Airtel has allowed unlimited 5G data only for higher value plans.

This new Airtel Unlimited 5G offer can be a great news for people who are on the move and wan to enjoy high-speed data on the go. However, the unlimited offering is just for testing and not permanent. It may be recalled once proper 5G plans are announced. Till then you can enjoy unlimited data.

How to claim Airtel 5G Unlimited Data on Airtel

To claim the unlimited data, you have to open the Airtel Thanks App and find the 5G section. If you have 5G available to you and your device is showing supported in the App. You will see this screen showing a ₹0 voucher for Unlimited 5G. Just claim and you should be having the offer within few seconds.

Airtel has not specified, until when this offer will be free, but there are high chances, Airtel will keep this offer until next Diwali, along with Jio.

Important info about Airtel 5G unlimited data

As the unlimited data is free only on 5G network, there may be instances when your network switches back to 4G and your daily quota starts getting consumed.

Also, when you get a call, the 5G network switches back to 4G as both JIO and Airtel have not implemented VoNR on 5G network.

So make sure when doing heavy downloads, you don’t get any calls, or you can lock the 5G band. i will publish a post soon, how to lock the 5G band on Jio and Airtel. (Don’t try this on your primary SIM, as you may not receive calls when on 5G only mode)

Bands supported by Airtel 5G

Airtel offers its 5G on NSA (non-Standalone) standard, which means its a layer of 5G over the 4G network itself. Which is why you will not find Airtel 5G network in manual 5G search (Unlike Jio 5G). Registering to the network is automatic when you have good 5G coverage.

Currently Airtel has only deployed NSA 3300MHz (N78) and 1800Mhz (N3) band.
