The 5G network will be launched in India at the Mobile World Congress on October 1. Jio has confirmed that the network will be launched in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata by Diwali and then expand to other markets. The full pan-India rollout will be completed by December 2023. Airtel also has similar plans. The recently concluded spectrum auction suggests that Jio will have an edge thanks to the 700MHz band.

While Jio and Airtel have not made any public announcements regarding the 5G packs, analysts expect them to be priced similar to the 4G packs. Experts believe that this is what telecom networks want, which will initially lead to massive adoption of the network.

Another analyst said that telecom networks want more users to experience faster speeds, consume more data and increase ARPU growth..”

Kunal Vora, Head of India Equity Research at BNP Paribas stated that 5G adoption will suffer if telecom operators price the 5G series higher than 4G. Airtel CTO Randeep Sekhon told 91mobiles In July, 5G plans in India will cost the same as the 4G plans consumers are currently paying.
