India is finally going to get 5G connectivity in the upcoming year 2022. But, the latest telecom connection will not be available in all the cities. Department of Telecom (DoT) has revealed that 5G telecom services are set to be rolled out in selected cities in India next year.

A total of 13 cities are set to get the 5G telecom services in 2022. The cities include Gurugram, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Mumbai, Chandigarh, Delhi, Jamnagar, Ahmedabad, Chennai, Hyderabad, Lucknow, Pune, and Gandhinagar.

5G services is the latest upgrade in the long-term evolution (LTE) mobile broadband networks after 4G, which allowed people to stream music and video with a higher speed. 5G connectivity is expected to offer higher speed and will help to connect many more types of devices than smartphones.

Telecom service providers like Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, and Vodafone Idea have set up 5G trials sites in some cities across the country. “These Metros and big cities would be the first places for the launch of 5G services in the country next year,” said DoT.

Apart from the telecom operators, the Department of Telecom is also join in the development testing 5G technology. DOT has also roped in leading research institutions like Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, IIT Delhi, IIT Hyderabad, IIT Madras, IIT Kanpur, Indian Institute of Science (IISC) Bengaluru, Society for Applied Microwave Electronics Engineering & Research (SAMEER) and Centre of Excellence in Wireless Technology (CEWiT, for the development and testing of 5G technology.

These eight agencies are involved in the research project called ‘Indigenous 5G Test bed project’, which started in 2018 and is set to be completed by December 31, 2021. The project has been funded by the Department of Telecom. The department has spent Rs 224 crore on this project.

In September 2021, DoT sent a reference to the industry regulator Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), seeking recommendations for the auction of spectrum identified for International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT)/ 5G with regard to a price, band plan, block size, quantum of spectrum to be auctioned and associated conditions for auction of spectrum in 526-698 MHz, 700 MHz, 800 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 2100 MHz, 2300 MHz, 2500 MHz, 3300-3670 MHz and 24.25-28.5GHz bands for IMT/5G public as well as private 5G networks, for meeting the spectrum requirements of captive 5G applications of the industry (Industry 4.0).

5G services will be provides in 3 bands, low, mid, and high-frequency spectrum. The low-band spectrum have a speed limited of 100 Mbps. While the mid-band spectrum offers higher speeds compared to the low band but has limitations in terms of coverage area and penetration of signals and the high-band spectrum will provide internet speed up to 20 Gbps.

Let us tell you that the highest internet speed in 4G has been recorded at 1Gbps.
