The 5G network was officially launched in India on October 1. Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the India Mobile Congress (IMC) and experienced various 5G use cases demonstrated by telecom operators at their respective booths Airtel has launched 5G services in eight cities in India already, whereas Reliance Jio has confirmed to launch its 5G services later this month. Vodafone-Idea (Vi) will join the 5G party a bit late. Unfortunately, the Vi 5G launch date is unknown. Meanwhile, telecom minister Ashwini Vaishnaw confirmed that the government-backed BSNL will launch 5G services next year. 

BSNL 5G will take place next year on August 15, when India will celebrate its 77th year of Independence. The telecom minister confirmed the news at the IMC 2022, which is currently being hosted at the Pragati Maidan in New Delhi.

Since BSNL has its reach in the remotest corner of the country, it will help people living in rural areas to get access to the next-generation network. Although BSNL 5G will be almost a year late compared to the rollout by private players, it will be a lot faster compared to the state-owned telco’s 4G rollout. BSNL took about 10 years to confirm the launch of 4G services since it was first available in India. Airtel launched its 4G services in India in 2012, whereas BSNL got the government’s approval to upgrade to a 4G network earlier this year.

Minster Vaishnaw further said that 5G services from various telecom operators will be available in over 200 cities. The government and telcos are aiming to make 5G services available in 80-90 per cent of the country in the next two years. Jio has announced that it will make 5G services available nationwide by December 2023.
