5G rollout in India was expected to happen in October, as Jio had already announced its plans at its AGM 2022 back in August. If things go as planned, we can expect the rollout of 5G services to select cities by Diwali.
While the announcement for the launch of 5G network in India will happen on October 1, it remains to be seen as to when the end consumers will be able to experience 5G in India. There is no clarity whether 5G will be made available on October 1 itself or not. However, it looks like things will at least start on the said date. Interested users will have to purchase a new 5G SIM card to be able to use the new generation high-speed data.
As far as the pricing is concerned, reports suggest that the 5G tariff plans will be more or less similar to the current 4G plans, to encourage a mass adoption of 5G in the country. However, there’s no word from the leading telcos surrounding the pricing as of now.
