When will 5G launch in India? Check Updates: The Annual Meeting of Reliance Industries Limited creates excitement in the Indian industry every year. Buyers and shareholders are looking forward to it too. At the company's 43rd annual meeting on Wednesday, this time due to the Corona epidemic, videoconferencing, chairman Mukesh Ambani announced some important decisions.
When will 5G launch in India?
If these decisions are implemented, it could have a very positive impact on the country's economy and the lives of ordinary people. Mukesh Ambani said Reliance Jio's "Made in India" platform is fully operational with 5G technology.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai also participated in this annual meeting via video. He recently announced a $ 10 billion investment in India. At the conference, he announced that he would invest $ 4.5 billion in the Jio platform.
When will Jio launch 5g?
In countries where 5G is being launched, 5G mobile network infrastructure has been seen to be different. 4G (LTE) and 3G networks will be replaced by new radio technology with high bandwidth and low latency, and a separate structure will be required.
5G speeds up to 10Gbps, which is 100 times faster than 4G 100Mbps. The latency, that is, the time it takes to access data from the phone to the server, can be less than milliseconds, 60-120 times faster than 4G. Will Indian companies be able to deliver this speed?
The consensus among experts is that it is difficult to say anything now. Complaints of 4G and 3G speeds and line drops are common on mobile phones in India. There is a lack of satisfaction among consumers.
How will 5G perform in India?
The capacity report of Reliance Jio's "Made in India" devices is not yet publicly available. The company claims that it has used the most modern technology for 5G, which will bring an excellent experience for its 400 million customers.
But its first step is field testing. Jio is the first network to contact the Indian government to conduct a 5G mobile network test. Jio's strategy head Anshuman Thakur said in September 2019 that Jio is ready for 5G, and there is a need to build networks and invest in spectrum and equipment.
Jio is also the only operator with a completely IP network, which is a requirement to launch 5G services. (Fully IP voice networks use Internet Protocol technologies to connect phone calls and establish communications, in the same way, that computers use the Internet to exchange information.) When can 5G arrive in India? No one has an answer to this question.
But the industry estimates that ordinary consumers will not be able to use it before 2022-23. 5G smartphones are being sold in the country, but the service is not available yet. That is, the condition of 5G in India is that the food is ready, the eaters are also prepared, but the dining table has not been set yet. As Mukesh Ambani said on Wednesday, the Jio platform is prepared to roll-out 5G next year.
But the key to 5G lies with the government. Two critical pre-launch processes are still pending: auction of spectrum and expensive fees for its licenses. Government of India 202It was planned to auction this 5G spectrum in the second quarter of 0, but due to the COVID-19 epidemic, now this auction may be delayed. If the auction starts in the middle of next year, then the companies acquiring spectrum in the auction may take more than a year to prepare and test the infrastructure.
That is, it is impossible to meet 5G people before 2022. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has recommended that the spectrum be made available in the 3300 to 3400 MHz and 3425 to 3600 MHz bands for 5G services. These band ranges are known for good speed.
