Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched 5G telecom services today at the inauguration ceremony of the India Mobile Congress that will conclude on October 4.

The 5G launch event was also joined by three major telecom giants in India — Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, and Vodafone Idea. The three telecom operators demonstrated the use case each to show the potential of 5G technology in India in the coming months.

The India Mobile Congress is jointly organized by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) and the Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI). After announcing the launch of 5G services in India at the event, the Prime Minister paid a visit to the pavilions set up by different telecom operators.
