Bharti Airtel Ltd. reported a lower-than-expected quarterly profit, flagging a headwind for India's No.2 wireless operator as it begins to roll out 5G services across the country.

The carrier, led by billionaire Sunil Mittal, posted a 90% jump in net income of 21.5 billion rupees ($260 million) for the quarter ended Sep. 30, according to an exchange filing Monday. But it missed the 25.44 billion-rupee average profit estimated by analysts in a Bloomberg survey.
