5G services launched in India

Prime Minister Narendra Modi officially announced the launch of 5G in select cities starting today.

The launch took place at the India Mobile Congress in Delhi.

Airtel has confirmed that it will roll out 5G in eight cities starting today. “We will progressively cover the entire country by March 2024,” its chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal said.

Jio will bring 5G to select cities first, and plans to cover the entire country by 2023.

Vodafone-Idea has not yet confirmed the rollout date for its 5G plans.

5G is the next generation of mobile communication networks, which is supposed to offer much faster speeds and wider use cases than 4G.
