PATNA: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is launching 5G Services on Saturday. In the first phase, people will be able to enjoy this service in 13 big cities Except for Patna.
According to the report, telecom operators have been busy with installations to ensure a seamless rollout of these services across states. Things are moving at a fast pace. Entire India is expected to roll out 5G services by October 12, Union Communications, Electronics and Information Technology Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said on Thursday. The minister further asserted that the government will make sure that the prices of 5G are affordable for the users, he added.
After the launch of 5G services, it is believed that the country’s position can be further strengthened. Telecom operators were preparing for a long time to roll out these services in the states.
Let me tell you that a common portal has been created for all the states, with a central stop-shop for entry of infrastructure applications.
Whereas Bihar students and people cannot get 5G facilities at present, according to the media report.
During his media interaction, Vaishnaw said 5G services will be scaled up after launch and should reach every part of the country in the next two to three years.
The Centre on Thursday launched the 5G RoW (Right of Way) application form on the Gati Shakti sanchar portal.
The Minister said a common portal for all states has been made to have a central stop-shop for entry of infrastructure applications and approvals.
These cities will get services first
In the first phase of the rollout, 13 cities will get 5G Internet services. These include Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Gandhinagar, Gurugram, Hyderabad, Jamnagar, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai and Pune. New economic opportunities and social benefits can come from 5G. It will also take forward the vision of ‘Digital India’.
During his independence day speech, PM Modi hailed digital India’s progress. “India’s ‘techade’ is here, with 5G, chip manufacturing, we are bringing revolution through Digital India to the grassroots,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said. He had added a new term ‘techade’ highlighting the value of technology in today’s world and also said that 5G services would be rolled out soon in India.
When will 5G reach the villages?
Let us tell you, Jio has talked about an investment of 2 lakh crores to make 5G internet service available in every village of the country. While even today 4G has not worked in several villagers’ areas in Bihar.
Although it is not considered so easy. According to technical experts, it may take at least one and a half years for this service to reach village to village. At the same time, mobile companies are also
claiming that they will reach 5G service in every corner of the country by December 2023. If the claims of the companies are accepted, then 5G will not reach the village before one year.
However, it is expected that the 5G plan increase after the lunch. While such facilities will not be available even in digital India after activating 5G Plan for villagers.
