In India, 5G services are now available for purchase. PM Narendra Modi will make the announcement as part of IMC (India Mobile Congress).
The main 5G announcement will occur on October 1 and the IMC will run from October 1 to October 4. The Prime Minister will make his statement as part of a debate titled “Towards 5G Advanced & 6G,” thus it is likely that several topics pertaining to the nation’s future in technology and communication will be covered.
Join us for a discussion on “Towards 5G Advanced & 6G” at India Mobile Congress 2022 in Pragati Maidan on October 01 – 04, 2022 to witness the biggest Technology event of Asia.#IMC2022@exploreIMC @ConnectCOAI @DoT_India @iitmadras @TSDSI_India @AmritMahotsav pic.twitter.com/nbHGIY1sOM— India Mobile Congress (@exploreIMC) September 24, 2022
This does not imply that 5G service will be available to consumers on October 1. It might just take some time. Reliance Jio has declared its standalone 5G service, which uses brand-new 5G infrastructure rather than current 4G towers, to be ready. However, users will likely still need to purchase a new 5G SIM card. While Vodafone Idea’s 5G debut is still a little questionable in terms of timing, Airtel is anticipated to begin its 5G services around the same time as Jio.
In any event, the date complements India’s 75th anniversary of independence festivities, which took place in August. We anticipate seeing engaging launch pricing and promotions for 5G. Overall, local analysts predict that the cost of the new 5G services will probably be comparable to, if not lower than, the current 4G prices. That is, at least initially, as onboarding new users will be the first priority for carriers.
