India Mobile Congress (IMC), which claims to be the largest telecom, media, and technology forum in Asia, is jointly organised by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) and Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI).
Union Minister of Communications, Electronics and Information Technology Ashwini Vaishnav said last week that the government has set a target of 80 per cent coverage of 5G telecom services in the country in a short time frame.
While addressing an industry event in the national capital last Wednesday, Mr Vaishnav had said, “The 5G journey is going to be very exciting and noted that it took many years for many countries to reach 40 per cent to 50 per cent coverage. But we are targeting a very aggressive timeline and the government has given a target of 80 per cent coverage in a short time frame and we should definitely cover at least 80 per cent in a very short time frame.”
Experts have said that India will benefit greatly from 5G technology. The Indian economy is likely to benefit ₹36.4 trillion ($455 billion) between 2023 and 2040, estimates a recent report by a global industry body representing mobile network operators.
The GSMA (Global System for Mobile Communications) report states that by 2030, 5G will account for more than a third of the total connections in India, with 2G and 3G slashing to less than 10 per cent. Adoption (79 percent) reflects a customer base that is ready to transition to 5G.
The report also estimated which sectors will realise how much benefit of 5G technology — manufacturing sector (representing 20 per cent of the total benefit), retail (12 per cent), and agriculture (11 per cent).
