5G is finally launched in India. prime minister Narendra Modi launched 5G services in the country during the Indian Mobile Congress (IMC) 2022 in New Delhi. While 5G services are starting to roll out now, Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI) has become 5G ready a little earlier. Delhi’s IGI Airport is the first 5G-ready airport India and got 5G capabilities a couple of days before the 5G launch.

IMC 2022, where Prime Minister Modi launched 5G in India, is scheduled to continue till October 4. Earlier this week, the airport authority said that anyone with a 5G-enabled phone can access faster network services in various parts of Terminal 3 to start the process. It is not known which carrier’s 5G network will be used at the Delhi airport.

With 5G now officially launched, telecom companies are expected to start rolling out their 5G services by Diwali. During IMC 2022, Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani said that every village in India will have access to 5G services by the end of 2023.

Earlier, IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnav said last month that the government expects 5G services to be rolled out in the country by October 12. Vaishnau said the installation is underway and telecom operations are busy rolling out 5G services smoothly.

The 5G services will be rolled out in phases, with 13 cities likely to get 5G internet services in the first phase. Companies like Airtel have already confirmed that its 4G users do not need a new SIM card to use 5G services. But everyone should make sure that their phone can support Indian 5G network bands from different carriers.
