5G Will Change Lives and Boost Economy, TRAI Predicts

The deployment of 5G technology, which is happening much quicker than expected, will “touch and change our lives like never before” while bringing new performance expectations to the telecommunications industry, according to a new white paper by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI). Though the upfront investment is significant, 5G will create new revenue streams across industries that justify the costs.

The white paper, Enabling 5G in  India, was commissioned to identify probable roadblocks in deploying 5G across India and encourage stakeholders to craft solutions. The full-scale roll out of 5G is expected to start in late 2019 or early 2020; experts predict it will be deployed by 2020 in India.
