Lava Agni 5G will soon start receiving a new software update that will bring support for India’s 5G networks. The company on Wednesday announced the upcoming software will allow all 5G networks, including Airtel 5G Plus and Jio True5G. The announcement comes days after top bureaucrats of the Indian government held a meeting with different smartphone companies and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to discuss the early adoption of 5G.

Lava Agni 5G users in eligible cities can start using Airtel 5G Plus in eight cities after the update is installed. Airtel’s 5G services are available in Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Nagpur, Varanasi, Siliguri, and Hyderabad. Meanwhile, Jio is testing its 5G services in four cities right now: Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Varanasi, so Agni 5G users in these cities will be able to use 5G services after the update. Since there is no information about Vi’s plans for 5G deployment, nothing is clear at the moment.
