New Delhi: The wait for 5G is going to end soon. 5G services in the country are going to start from October 1. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch 5G services at the India Mobile Congress on October 1. After the launch, people’s wait for 5G services will end.
The government’s National Broadband Mission has given this information by tweeting today. It has said that taking India’s digital transformation and connectivity to new heights, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch 5G services in India at Asia’s largest technology exhibition India Mobile Congress.
Earlier, Electronics and Information Technology Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw had stated that India is gearing up for the roll out of 5G services by October. He had also added that 5G services will be scaled up after launch and should reach every part of the country in the next two to three years. Mr Vaishnaw futher said, “the journey of 5G is going to be very exciting and noted that many countries took multiple years to reach 40 per cent to 50 per cent coverage. But we are targeting a very aggressive timeline and the Government has given a target of 80 per cent coverage in a short time frame and we should definitely cover at least 80 per cent in a very short timeframe.”
The speed of sending and receiving data in 5G service is going to be faster than ever. This will not only save people’s time, but many applications of the new era can also be used easily. With the help of 5G, the customer’s experience will be better than ever before, and now it will take negligible time from transaction to downloading or uploading of files.
Through the fifth generation i.e. 5G telecommunication services, high quality long video or movie can be downloaded on mobile and other devices in few seconds. It will support about one lakh communication devices in one square kilometer.
The service enables superfast speeds (about 10 times faster than 4G), cutting down on connectivity delays, and real-time data sharing across billions of connected devices. Through this, 3D hologram calling, metaverse experience and educational applications can be redefined.
Indian consumers will soon start getting 5G services in select cities and will see its wide spread in the next 12-18 months. Over time, the new technology will turn into reality even those applications of life that seemed far-fetched just a few years ago.
