Indian mobile network users will soon start adopting 5G technology that as compared to the present 4G technology can deliver up to 1000 mbps downloading speed. Indian telecom company, Bharti Airtel and Chinese telecom Huawei are gearing up to launch 5G services across India.
Recently, they have successfully conducted India’s first 5G network trial test at the Airtel’s network experience centre in Manesar, Gurgaon. The test was a small but a major step towards next generation 5G mobile network that could offer data speed up to 100 times faster than current 4G networks. 5G will be a game changer in the telecom industry and Airtel Bharti wants to be the pioneer of this technology.
The promises of 5G are countless and it will change the way we live, work and engage. Imagine downloading a movie within seconds and seamless video calls across India. During the first test trial, more than 3GB per second was achieved and it is the highest measured throughout for a mobile network in 3.5 GHz band with 100 MHz bandwidth. On an average a user will get speed around 1 GB per second.
Telecom secretary, Aruna Sundararajan said that the process is ongoing and it is expected to finalize a road-map for 5G services by June this year. Once the road-maps and action plans get implemented then India may officially roll out 5G services for consumers by 2020.
