According to Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Thursday, India has established its own 5G infrastructure and is prepared to share it with other nations as well.
In her conversation with students at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, Ms. Sitharaman stated that “the story (of India’s 5G) is yet to reach the public” (SAIS).
“The 5G that we’ve launched in our country is completely standalone,” she said in response to a question.
“There could be some parts coming from, say, countries like (South) Korea, but (not) coming from somebody else. So complete indigenous technology that we can now provide 5G (to any country) who wants it,” she said.
“So, our 5G is not imported from somewhere else. It’s our own product,” Ms Sitharaman said.
The 5G services were recently introduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a few Indian towns and are anticipated to be available throughout the country by 2024, according to her.
“On 5G, I think, we can be immensely proud of India’s achievements,” Nirmala Sitharaman said.
