What Did Union FM Nirmala Sitharaman Say About 5G Technology?
The FM was interacting with students at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) when one of the students asked her about the 5G technology launched in India. And Ms Sitharaman was quick in answering that 5G was an indigenous technology.
The story of India’s 5G was to reach the public said Ms Sitharaman. The 5G that the government had launched in the country was completely standalone was her response to the question.
But Ms Sitharaman accepted that there could be some parts imported from countries like South Korea but the technology wasn’t borrowed from a foreign country. She said that 5G was completely indigenous technology and they can provide 5G technology to anyone interested in it.
Also, Ms Sitharaman didn’t forget to feel proud of India developing its 5G infrastructure when she said that on 5G, she thought, they can be immensely proud of India’s achievements.
The 5G technology was recently launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The service is presently available in selected cities but it will soon be available throughout the country.
