State-owned BSNL will start 5G services in 2024, Union Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said on January 5. A consortium led by TCS and C-DOT has been chosen by BSNL to roll out its 4G network, which will be upgraded to 5G in around a year after the order is placed under the deal.

Mr. Vaishnaw told media in Bhubaneswar that BSNL would launch 5G services in 2024. He was speaking on the sidelines of the event where Jio and Airtel were launching their 5G services in Odisha. The services were introduced by Mr. Vaishnaw and Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan.

“In two years, 5G services will be available throughout Odisha. Bhubaneswar and Cuttack have now launched 5G services “announced the minister of telecom. In the State, he promised to roll out 5G services by January 26. The Modi administration, according to Mr. Vaishnaw, has set aside 5,600 crore for improving telecom connection in the State. He further said, “100 towers for 4G services serving 100 villages in Odisha have been launched today.”
