“Telecom as a sector is vital for the purpose of nation building, investments in last 2 decades from overseas is about 250,000 cr. The reason for this number is because there are large ambitions that we have and to invest even more in this sector in the coming 5 years. We are on our way to meeting our 5G targets hoping to attract investments worth 100 billion USD creating 4 million jobs. The latest policy drives on Propel India, Connect India and Secure India through which we hope to expand IoT to 5 billion connected devices and 10 million public WiFi hotspots by 2022, we are very optimistic about it and great work has been done by the industry,” said P. Balaji, Director Regulatory & Corporate Affairs, Vodafone India.

As 5G becomes increasingly integral to industrial businesses and digitalization, the revenue from 5G-enabled digitization in India is expected to reach $25.9 billion by 2026. In future millions of smartphone apps will be joined by billions of IoT devices, thus forcing wireless networks to grip for more airwaves.
