Further calling 5G a “long haul”, Vittal said the company is not in any race to trumpet the biggest, fastest rollout, but is instead focusing on providing a good experience for its 5G customers. Is.

Vittal, meanwhile, said Airtel does not believe in high 5G tariffs, but will continue to strive for an overall increase in tariffs while keeping the service most affordable and high quality.

Also on the question of any tariff hike, Vittal said: “…it is all not in our hands, tariffs in India are very low, both in average revenue per users as well as per GB rates. If you look at both of them, we are at the bottom of the two.”

Bharti Airtel on Tuesday reported a 37.5 per cent year-on-year decline in consolidated net profit at Rs 1,341 crore in the September quarter, dragged down by a one-time extraordinary charge. At the same time, the revenue for the September quarter has increased by 7.3 percent year-on-year to Rs 37,044 crore.
