Bharti Airtel has revealed its plans to provide 5G connectivity for metro commuters in Kolkata through an under-river tunnel. The telecom giant will install high-capacity nodes 35 meters beneath the Hooghly River. This makes Airtel the first operator to offer uninterrupted connectivity along the 4.8km stretch of Kolkata's East-West Metro corridor, which connects Howrah Maidan to the Esplanade.
