Telcos set to invest $19.5 billion by 2025 to develop 5G infrastructure – The New Indian Express

By Express press service

NEW DELHI: Indian telecom operators are expected to invest nearly $19.5 billion by 2025 to develop 5G network infrastructure.

According to the GSMA report, the deployment of 5G in India could benefit the Indian economy by $455 billion between 2023 and 2040, or more than 0.6% of the GDP projected for 2040.

“The benefits of 5G are expected to be realized in new applications in manufacturing (accounting for 20% of total benefits) as well as in retail, ICT and agriculture sectors,” the report said.

The report further states that the Indian government has allocated two carriers of 250 MHz each in the E-band to meet the current need to support 5G deployments.

This may not be enough in the 5G era given the requirement for high capacity backhaul to support use cases and increasing data traffic.

He said a clear policy guideline on backhaul spectrum allocation is needed.

According to the GSMA report, both consumer and enterprise segments present significant opportunities for 5G services in India.

However, further reforms are needed to support the development of advanced telecommunications infrastructure as a fundamental driver of a digital society.

The report notes that there is still a significant digital divide in India, with lack of literacy and skills remaining the biggest barrier preventing large swathes of the population from participating in the digital economy and the social and economic benefits that it can bring to their lives.

“Given the importance of 5G to India’s digital future, it has become critical for government and the mobile industry to collectively evolve and ensure the sustainable growth of the mobile industry,” says the GSMA report.

India is expected to see 5G services soon. India’s largest telecom operator, Reliance Jio, said it would launch 5G services by Diwali, while Airtel said it would launch its service within a month.
