Addressing the audience on the occasion, Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said, “Telecommunications is the gateway, the foundation of digital India. It is the means to bring digital services to every person.” .

Union Telecommunications Minister Ashwini Vaishnav today announced that BSNL will also provide 5G services from August 15 next year.

He said that in the next 6 months, 5G services will be available in over 200 cities. At the same time, efforts are being made to make 5G services available in 80-90% of the country within the next 2 years, as reported by the ANI news agency.

The launch of 5G services in India kicked off the sixth edition of India Mobile Congress in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. Prime Minister Narendra Modi opened the expo ahead of the official launch of 5G services in India.

Addressing the audience on the occasion, the Union Telecom Minister said, “Telecom is the gateway, the foundation of digital India. It is the means of bringing digital services to each person”.

He also called the telecommunications industry a booming industry – a strategic growth industry, which is at the heart of all things digital. With the arrival of 5G, India hopes to emerge as a leader in telecommunications technology, the minister added. A sum of Rs 35,000 crore has been sanctioned for last mile connectivity, which means bringing 5G to every nook and corner of the country.

The telecommunications sector, Vaishnaw added, has seen many reforms over the years. With the help of the Prime Minister, there has been regulatory certainty in the industry, approvals have become easier and have been expedited.

Besides, BSNL also received a stimulus package of Rs 1.64 lakh crore. This support program is for four years, but 70% of it will be granted during the first two years. On the Rs 1.64 lakh crore, there will be cash support of Rs 44,000 crore, and the rest will be non-cash.

Vaishnaw had previously said that the results of this package will be seen within the next two years, and BSNL will finally roll out 4G services during this period.
