5G Technology Started in India

After passing 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G, now it is 5G. India has finally stepped on the path of transition of telecom technology. Prime Minister Narendra Modi officially launched the faster 5G service at the Indian Mobile Congress in Delhi on Saturday. To say that there was a moon market that day. Apart from Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw, three rivals in the telecom sector, Mukesh Ambani, Sunil Bharti Mittal, and Kumaramangalam Birla were also present at the event. Mukesh’s Reliance Jio today announced the launch of 5G services. Mittal’s Bharti Airtel launched the service in a few cities on Saturday.

History of Transition

In 1991, the transition from analog (1G) to digital technology took place through 2G. Mobile services, introduced two and a half decades ago, brought a new revolution to the communication system. It started in Kolkata. 3G came in 2008. In addition to holding hands and talking, the use of the Internet is increasing. 4G technology came in 2010. However, its use was limited for several years at first. Six years ago, Jio revolutionized demand and usage by introducing cheaper, smoother data-based 4G services. Since then, the practice was going on with 5g services.

Experts say, as the speed of the net will increase manifold in 5g, more importantly, it will be possible to provide services in more areas using this technology. On this day, Jio, Airtel, and Vodafone Idea (Vi) presented such practical applications in front of Modi. For example, Jio connects a teacher in Mumbai with school students in Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Odisha through 5G. In the service of Vi, he talks to a worker of the tunnel under construction of the Delhi Metro. Solar system lessons for school students in Uttar Pradesh on Airtel’s service.

The stance of Prime Minister 

The Prime Minister said that a new dawn has started in the country with the help of 5G. He said that it will not only increase the speed of the net but also change a life. He also highlighted the role of India-made technology in 5G. However, despite this, Modi did not stop taking a dig at the Congress-led UPA. He claims that there is a difference between the purpose of 2G and the purpose of 5G. Many believe that it is referring to the 2G Spectrum scam during the UPA era.

Modi also claimed that in 2014, the number of net subscribers increased from only 60 million to 80 million. From 8 years ago optical fiber connection in 100 gram panchayats in the country has now increased to 1.70 lakh. However, according to a section of the concerned circles, it was Manmohan Singh’s tenure that sowed the seeds of digital schemes like Aadhaar, and Gram Panchayat optical fiber installation.

Mukesh said that they will launch the cheapest 5G service during Diwali. It will be launched everywhere by December 2023. Sunil said that after the launch of the 5G service in eight cities today, it will be spread to many more cities by March.
