India Witnesses Rapid Adoption as Nearly 100 Million Subscribers Embrace 5G Services


In a significant development, the deployment of 5G networks has proliferated across 738 districts in India, boasting a user base of nearly 100 million subscribers, making it one of the swiftest fifth-generation rollouts globally. The information was shared in Parliament on Wednesday by Minister of State for Communications, Devusinh Chauhan.

Telecom service providers in India have committed a substantial investment of Rs 2 lakh crore in the 5G infrastructure, with Rs 1.5 lakh crore allocated for spectrum acquisition through auctions conducted in July-August 2022, according to Chauhan’s written reply in Lok Sabha.

As of November 24, 2023, a total of 3,94,298 base stations have been installed, contributing to the extensive 5G network coverage in 738 districts. Minister Chauhan highlighted India’s achievement as having one of the fastest 5G rollouts on a global scale.

Additionally, the Gross Revenue of Telecom service providers surpassed Rs 3 lakh crore for the first time in the fiscal year 2022-23, indicating robust growth in the telecom sector. Chauhan attributed this growth to various structural and procedural reforms implemented by the government in recent years. These reforms aimed to foster healthy competition, infuse liquidity, encourage investment, and reduce regulatory burdens on operators while safeguarding consumer interests.

Key reforms included the rationalization of the definition of Adjusted Gross Revenue, facilitation of spectrum trading and sharing, and ensuring the availability of adequate spectrum through open and transparent auctions. The cumulative impact of these measures has contributed to the flourishing telecom sector in India, showcasing the nation’s commitment to technological advancement and connectivity.
