5G roll-out should be India's national priority: Mukesh Ambani

New Delhi, Dec 8 (UNI) Listing out five ideas to boost digital infrastructure, Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) Chairman Mukesh Ambani on Wednesday said that roll-out of 5G should be India's national priority.
"Roll-out of 5G should be India’s national priority. At Jio, we are currently focused on 4G and 5G execution and broadband infrastructure expansion," Ambani said.
He said that Reliance has developed a 100 per cent home-grown and comprehensive 5G solution, which is fully cloud native and digitally managed.
In his speech at India Mobile Congress 2021, the billionaire business tycoon said that India must complete the migration from 2G to 4G to 5G at the earliest.
"To keep millions of Indians at the bottom of the socio-economic pyramid confined to 2G is to deprive them of the benefits of the digital revolution," he said.
The third suggestion of Ambani was that India should move towards greater digital inclusion.
"We should not lose sight of the fact that affordability has been a critical driver of the phenomenally rapid expansion of the mobile subscriber base in India. India should move towards greater digital inclusion, and not greater digital exclusion," he said.
Ambani's fourth idea was that Ubiquitous Fibre Connectivity should be completed across India on a mission mode.
"My fifth idea is that, beyond connectivity, we should focus on the critical components of the digital eco-system which are necessary for India’s digital transformation," the RIL boss said.
