PM Narendra Modi to launch 5G services in India on October 1

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to launch 5G services at India Mobile Congress on October 1.

The news came after the government on Monday successfully completed the 5G spectrum auction and mopped up over Rs 1.50 lakh crore in bids by four companies including Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, Vodafone Idea, and Adani Data Networks.

“It gives us immense pleasure to announce the Inauguration of “India Mobile Congress 2022″ by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi. Join us at Pragati Maidan on October 01 – 04, 2022 to witness the biggest Technology event of Aisa,” India Mobile Congress tweeted.

Earlier, during his Independence speech, PM Modi said that the 5G services will be launched in India soon. Jointly organized by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) and the Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI), the sixth edition of the India Mobile Congress (IMC) will take place at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, from October 1-4.

A few days ago, Electronics and Information Technology Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said that India is gearing up for the rollout of 5G services by October. The Union minister also said that the services will be scaled up after the launch.
