Similar to the launch of service in Delhi NCR, the company said that it will work only through Airtel Broadband network. However, reports indicate that the service worked for use on iPhone, OnePlus devices and K20 Pro even when it was connected to other networks.

The service is displayed as Airtel WiFi on iPhone, VoWiFi on OnePlus and there is a WiFi symbol with a phone receiver on the top.
