India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that the country is targeting to launch a 6G telecom network by the end of the decade, which will provide ultra-high-speed internet connectivity to the users. Currently, there are 3G and 4G telecom networks in India. At the same time, companies are planning to launch a 5G network in the next few months. Let us know what is the planning of the government behind bringing the 6G network and what are the benefits to the citizens of the country.
Indian economy will benefit
Speaking at the Silver Jubilee event of the Telecom Sector Regulator TRAI (TRAI), he said that it is expected that the introduction of 5G network will benefit the Indian economy by $ 450 billion i.e. about Rs 3,492 crore. He said that ‘this will increase the speed of internet, but at the same time the speed of development and employment generation is also increasing’.
These sectors will get a huge boost
He said that this will provide growth to development in agriculture, health, education, infrastructure, and logistics. PM Modi said that connectivity will decide the progress of the country in the 21st century and hence there is a need to prepare the modern infrastructure. According to the Prime Minister, a task force has started work on rolling out the 6G network by the end of the decade.
The tremendous increase in mobile manufacturing units
Taking a dig at the earlier Congress-led UPA government, Modi said the 2G era was a symbol of policy paralysis and corruption. Used to be. He said teledensity and internet users are expanding rapidly. He said that the mobile manufacturing units in India have increased from two to more than 200 and the country has now become the largest mobile manufacturing hub in the world.
the cheapest internet in India
PM Modi also said that his government has encouraged healthy competition, due to which India is one of the countries in the world that provides the cheapest telecom data. He said that the indigenous 5G testbed in the telecom sector is an important step toward India’s self-reliance.
