New Delhi: India aims to deploy a 6G telecommunications network that will provide high-speed Internet connectivity by the end of the decade, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Tuesday. India now has 3G and 4G telecommunications networks, and companies are preparing to launch 5G over the next few months.

Speaking at the silver jubilee event of telecoms regulator TRAI, he said it is estimated that the deployment of the 5G network will add $ 450 billion to the Indian economy. “This is not only an increase in the speed of the Internet, but also the pace of development and job creation,” he said, adding that 5G technology will bring positive changes in governing the country, make life easier and easier to do business.

It will promote growth in agriculture, health, education, infrastructure and logistics, he said. Communication, Modi said, will decide the country’s progress in the 21st century, and so modern infrastructure needs to be deployed.

According to the Prime Minister, by the end of the decade, a task force to deploy the 6G network began working. Taking pictures of the previous UPA government led by Congress, Modi said the 2G era was a symbol of political paralysis and corruption.

The country under his government has transparently switched to 4G and is now switching to 5G, and TRAI has played a very important role in that transition, Modi said. The prime minister said that whenever the industry faced problems such as retrospective tax or adjusted gross income, his government responded quickly to the crisis and carried out reforms where necessary.

“These efforts have created new confidence. The result is that over the past 8 years, the telecommunications sector has received one and a half times more FDI compared to the number that came to the country before 2014,” – said Modi. Teledensity and Internet users are expanding rapidly, he said, adding that mobile manufacturing units in India have increased from 2 to more than 200, and the country is now the world’s largest mobile manufacturing hub.

The Prime Minister also said that his government is encouraging healthy competition, which has led to India receiving one of the cheapest data rates in the world. He added that the local 5G test machine in the telecommunications sector is an important step in India’s independence.

Telecommunications Minister Ashwani Vaishnau said the country’s scientists and engineers have developed a full 4G stack that is ready for BSNL deployment, and the 5G stack is at an advanced stage of development. “This year we should see our 5G technology stack developed by the local population,” Vaishnov said.

He also said that by the end of this month, reforms will be carried out in the spectrum management department of the Telecommunications Department – the Commission for Wireless Planning. State Communications Minister Devousin Chauhan said that by the end of this year, 4G telecommunications devices will be deployed in the BSNL network.

Trai chairman P. D. Wagel said that following the regulator’s recommendations on 5G services and launching 5G testing for industry and startups will create new platforms for all vertical sectors, leading to overall economic growth. He said that in the future it will be important for regulators to jointly create an infrastructure to reduce the cost of deploying services, and TRAI has begun working with infrastructure regulators.

I&B Secretary Apurwa Chandra said that despite the consolidation in the telecommunications sector, the broadcasting segment is a new entrant almost every day. He said the media and entertainment industry is expected to grow to $ 70 billion by 2030 from $ 25 billion, and TRAI as a broadcast regulator will have to play an important role in driving that growth.
