News Synopsis

Ashwini Vaishnav said on the 5G rollout in the country that the 5G spectrum auction has been done for all circles. Now we are at the final stage of 5G launching. This fast internet service will be started soon in the country. Giving information at an event on Sunday, Union Information and Technology Minister Ashwini Vaishnav said that the 5G service will be started in India soon. The target has been set to connect the entire country with 5G connectivity within two years. Let us tell you that on September 24, the news went viral in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi was making claims of launching 5G in the country on October 1.

The government will ensure that the 5G plans remain affordable for the public, the minister said. The 5G services would be rolled out in a phased manner and during the first phase, 13 cities are likely to get the 5G internet services. 

The cities are Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Gandhinagar, Gurugram, Hyderabad, Jamnagar, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai, and Pune. Just like 3G and 4G, telcos will soon announce dedicated 5G tariff plans and according to industry experts, consumers may pay more to access the 5G services on their devices. An immediate tariff war with the launch of 5G is unlikely, but it "will be competitive as India continues to be a price-conscious market".
