Good news from telecom sector

EW DELHI: The Government has formed a high-level forum to guide India to start 5G service by 2020, a technology that will deliver wireless broadband speed of about 10,000 mbps in urban areas and 1,000 mbps in rural belts, Telecom Minister Manoj Sinha said today.

In a bid to facilitate research and development activities for 5G service rollout, the Government is looking at setting up a Rs 500-crore support fund.

“We have created a high-level 5G forum that will work on vision mission and goals of 5G service in the country. When the world will roll out 5G in 2020, I believe India will be at par with them,” Sinha said.

“We will make efforts to develop globally competitive products and manufacture them here with a target of getting 50 per cent of India market and 10 per cent of global market over next 5-7 years,” Sinha said.
