Could 5G be the solution to some of our woes?
Telecom service providers such as Airtel, Vodafone and Reliance are working to bring the technology by 2020, IndiaTimes reported.
The long drawn timeline is to accommodate the massive amounts of work behind its implementation.
Airtel has started the process with the first round of installations in Kolkata and Bengaluru, and will soon include Pune, Chandigarh and Hyderabad.
Telecom operators will introduce this through the Multiple Input Multiple Output technology (MIMO).
MIMO is a pre-requisite to deploy the 5G network as it boosts a network base station by up to seven times, while considerably reducing the disturbances. This also boosts the transmission signal to the devices.
On 5G connectivity, for instance, you could achieve speeds between 30 Mbps and 35 Mbps on average. Comparatively, the 4G speed in India is between 4 Mbps to 16 Mbps.
Swedish telecom hardware brand Ericsson is in conversations with other telecom operators for 5G network solutions.
