5G Service In India: In India, from Jio to Airtel, has announced the launch of 5G in the month of August. The auction of 5G spectrum has also been completed, in which Jio has won the maximum 5G spectrum. Jio has purchased a total of 24,740Mhz spectrum which includes spectrum in 700Mhz, 800Mhz, 1800Mhz, 3300Mhz and 26Ghz bands. Wherein Bharti Airtel has named 19867Mhz spectrum. Apart from this, Vodafone-Idea has bagged 6228Mhz spectrum. Now the question is, whose 5G plan is going to be cheaper. Although no company has given any clear information about the price of 5G plan so far, but here we are telling you what Airtel, Jio and Vodafone Idea have said about the price of 5G plan?
Akash Ambani, chairman of Reliance Jio Infocomm, has said, ‘We will celebrate ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ with 5G rollout across India. Jio is known for providing world-class, affordable 5G services. We will provide services, platforms and solutions that will drive India’s digital revolution, especially in critical areas such as education, healthcare, agriculture, manufacturing and e-governance. This is our next contribution in realizing the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s Digital India mission.” In such a situation, we are expecting that Jio’s plans will be cheap. Anyway, at present, Jio’s 4G pre-paid plans are cheaper than other companies.
Airtel has also said that it is also preparing to launch 5G commercially this month. Airtel has also partnered with Nokia, Ericsson and Samsung for the launch of 5G in the country. Airtel has not clarified anything about the price of the plan, but telecom industry experts say that the company’s plans will not be like 4G. The price of 5G plan is estimated to be up to 15 percent higher than that of 4G.
Vi (Vodafone Idea)
Talking about the 5G plan, Ravinder Takkar, managing director of Vodafone Idea, has said that 5G plans will be premium compared to 4G, although more data will also be given with 5G plans than 4G. Takkar says that the company’s huge money has been spent in the purchase of 5G spectrum. In such a situation, it is clear that Vodafone Idea’s 5G plans are not going to be cheap.
