“Today an Indian, on an average spends 14gb data in a month. In 2014 this cost ₹4,200 per month, now it is costing somewhere between ₹125 to ₹150. This means that poor and middle-income people are saving approximately ₹4,000 every month, it is not a small feat,” he added.

“This is not just India’s decade, it is the century of India,” Mr. Modi said adding that this an occassion for the entrepreneurs, small artisans and businessmen to help them progress further.

Now that it has launched, it won’t take time for it to reach everyone, the Prime Minister Modi said at the launch of 5G services in India.

“This technology shouldn’t be limited to just voice calls or watching videos. This should be used to bring about a revolution,” he said adding that in the near future the country will work on technologies that will make India a global leader.
