Over the next few years, Jio would focus on creating a “robust” wireline network across the country, offering high-speed connectivity and a bouquet of digital services to every home and enterprise.
In India, 5G is expected to create an economic impact of 1 trillion by 2035 and the implementation of 5G and other related technologies will help in accelerating the process of digital communication.
