New Delhi/IBNS: In a significant push to enhance India's digital landscape, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday launched 5G services at a telecom event in India.

Modi launched the fifth generation technology standard for broadband cellular networks on the inaugural day of the sixth edition of Asia's largest telecom, media and technology forum, India Mobile Congress 2022, at Pragati Maidan in Delhi.

The event was attended by the central government's Communications, Electronics and Technology Minister, Ashwini Vaishnaw, telecom industry leaders Mukesh Ambani of Reliance, Sunil Bharti Mittal of Bharti Airtel and Kumar Mangalam Birla of Vi.

Speaking at the event, Modi, whose one of main aims is to make India digitally equipped, said, "Today, on behalf of the country and its telecom industry, 130 crore Indians are getting a wonderful gift in the form of 5G. 5G is the beginning of an infinite sky of opportunities."

"New India will not remain a mere consumer of technology, but India will play an active role in the development and implementation of the technology," he added.

The Prime Minister further said, "Digital India is not just a name, it is a big vision for the development of the country.

"The goal of this vision is to take the technology to the common people, which works for the people, and works with the people."

5G services will be rolled out in 13 Indian cities post Diwali.

Benefits of 5G

5G technology will offer a wide range of benefits to the common people.

It will help in providing seamless coverage, high data rate, low latency, and highly reliable communications. Also, It will increase energy efficiency, spectrum efficiency and network efficiency.

5G technology will help in connecting billions of Internet of Things devices, will allow higher quality video services with mobility at high speed, and delivery of critical services such as telesurgery and autonomous cars among others.

5G will help in real-time monitoring of disasters, precision agriculture, and minimising the role of humans in dangerous industrial operations such as in deep mines, offshore activities etc.

Unlike existing mobile communication networks, 5G networks will allow tailoring of requirements for each of these different use cases within the same network.
