New Delhi: For the first time in the country, the government is considering a 5G rollout.
It is a first for India.
In a major move, the Indian government is working on a 5Gb (5 Gigabits per second) policy.
This will cover 4G, 3G and 3G mobile networks and the Internet.
The policy will be unveiled on Monday.
More: India is the first country in the world to have a 5GB plan, according to industry sources.
This is the biggest step yet to get the nation to have an affordable broadband service.
At the same time, the country is considering other policies.
“There will be a lot of discussion at the level of policy and the framework.
So it is likely to be a very big discussion,” said Arvind Sharma, a telecom analyst at India Ratings.
India has a population of about 40 crore.
Its mobile network, with a capacity of 1.2 billion mobile phones, has a capacity factor of 99, according the government.
While there are many other ways to get broadband, it is the most widely used method of providing connectivity, according a report by the World Bank.
The 5G policy aims to reduce latency and increase speeds.
To put it in context, the current average download speed of a mobile phone in India is 4G (5G), and the average download latency is 0.2 milliseconds.
India has a 2G (3G) and 4G mobile network.
For instance, the average speed for a 3G phone is 3.1 Mbps, according data from the ITC.
That is about 20 times faster than in the US.
India also has a 4G and 5G mobile spectrum, which means it can access more data, said Sharma.
