When 5G will start in Odisha?
“I promised you that Odisha will get 5G services in the first phase. 5G services will be launched before January 26,” the telecom minister said.
“It has been alleged that Odisha has been neglected in the telecom sector. There were not enough funds for Odisha. But Modiji gave Odisha Rs 5,600 crore for the sector. Modiji has taken the responsibility of providing 4G services to the villages of Odisha. No one can say that Odisha is being neglected in the telecom sector,” Vaishnaw pointed out.
Notably, once launched, users will get service at speeds 10 times faster than 4G and 30 times faster than 3G. Earlier, the Union Telecom Minister had said that Odisha will get 5G services in the first phase.
