Airtel has announced its 5G router with new data plans to facilitate the fast performance of internet connectivity. In this article, we will provide information on the price of Airtel’s 5G router and guide you on how to set it up. MTN was the first network provider to launch 5G services in certain parts of Nigeria, and Airtel has now followed suit. Their 5G network is currently available in select locations in Nigeria, accompanied by new data plans and routers.
Presently, the 5G network coverage is limited to Port Harcourt, Abuja, and Lagos. Airtel has expressed plans to expand the service to other regions of the country in the near future. They are also expected to introduce additional 5G products, including a portable router. For now, let’s focus on the price and setup process of the currently available Airtel 5G router.
Setting Up the Airtel 5G Router
Inside the package of the Airtel 5G Router, you will find the following items:
- 5G Router

The setup process is straightforward. Simply plug the router into a power source and toggle the power button to turn it on. It will take a few minutes to complete the loading process, after which it will be ready for use. The router is designed to be used in cases where your phone does not support 5G, but you still require the speed it offers. Depending on your preferences, you can switch between 5G and 4G connectivity on the router. LED indicators on the router will provide you with information about its status while in use.
