Since coming to the market, jio has taken over the market with one offer after another. Big companies like airtel, vodafone, idea have suffered huge losses due to not being able to compete with Geo. Despite repeated attempts to return to the market with multiple plans, Geo has not yet seen the face of success due to new plans. This time, Geo announced that it will launch 5G next year, leaving the competitors behind.
Geo has informed that 5G will be launched in India by the middle of 2021. Speaking at the India Mobile Congress yesterday, Ambani said it was time to launch 5G in India. He said the service would be extended to all corners of the country. He also claimed that these 5Gs would take significant steps to make India self-reliant.
Earlier, Reliance Geo had sought government permission to conduct 5G trials based on design and technology. Telco giant Geo had earlier announced that it would expand its 5G trial run by partnering with Huawei, Ericsson and Nokia networks and not be limited to Samsung.
The Korean electronics giant was Jio's main supplier for 4G equipment, it said. The two companies presented new business opportunities in the use of 5G at the India Mobile Congress 2019. If the tests are successful, Geo could outsource equipment design and technology to third-party players, the report said.
The Nasdaq-listed Radissis Corp., a company acquired by RIL in June 2018, said at IMC 2019 that it would work with the industry to develop a 5G ecosystem in India, according to an earlier report.
If successful, Geo will be the first Indian telecom to create a separate 5G design and technology for the country. Geo competitors Vodafone Idea and Airtel are currently working with Nokia, Ericsson and Huawei to design 5G telecom equipment.
In December 2019, the Center said it would provide spectrum for telecom operators and equipment manufacturers for 5G trials. Initially, telecom players will conduct trials with vendor partners, then vendors including Nokia, Ericsson, Samsung, Huawei and ZTE did it independently in the second phase, according to previous reports.
