5G India launch

For the unaware, the 5G network has been launched in India officially by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Indian Mobile Congress (IMC) 2022. Leading telecom operators Reliance Jio and Bharti Airtel have announced that they will launch 5G services in the next few days, while Vi has not given a set timeline for the launch of its 5G services.

Initially, 5G services will only be rolled out in specific metro cities in India like Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Chennai. It was also announced earlier this week that the Indira Gandhi Internation (IGI) Airport in New Delhi will be 5G-ready starting today itself, allowing travellers to enjoy super-fast internet inside the airport.
