BSNL will be first in the race to launch 5G services in India. Telecom company has been working on its 5G services for a long period of time, and is expected to roll out the next-generation ultra-high-speed telecom services soon.
5G services will have India and a global launch together; which means that they will be the first to launch such services in India. BSNL Chief General Manager Anil Jain said, “BSNL will launch 5G services the same day as their launch globally,”. BSNL has already been working together with international vendors like Nokia, Coriant and ZTE to build its 5G technology network in the country. The public telecom company is aiming to unveil its 5G consumer services starting 2020.
BSNL has already acquired the airwaves in the premium 700 Mhz band from the Department of Telecom (DoT) to launch its 5G services along with 4G and VoLTE services.
