A year on, 5G speeds, sign ups accelerate

A year has zipped by since the launch of high-speed 5G services by Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio. Between them, India’s top-two telcos have over 110 million 5G subscribers. Post-rollout of 5G, India is now ranked 47th globally on mobile download speeds, a huge improvement from its 119th position, pre-5G, just over a year back. Full-blown 5G mobile tariffs are still some time away, though, Jio and Airtel have taken early steps at 5G monetisation by recently launching 5G-based fixed wireless access (FWA) services in key markets. ET tracks the progress of 5G in India.
