Let's see who brings 5G first to majority of their customers in wider part of out country. Not just metro areas first!!!

Jio 1st...no doubt in my mind. Mota bhai Ambani has them primed already. Mittal's gang will not be far behind. Don't be surprised if there's a simultaneous launch by both. After all its easier to skim the market as a duopoly before other players jump onto the bandwagon.

Let's see what Vi does... I have trust on both Airtel & Jio as @Chip said. There could be a simultaneous launch. What about Vi 🤷

Maybe they'll start the metro way...

Vi maybe later between say Sept or Oct/Diwali. But won't be surprised if they raise funding and get it out sooner. Money aside this is their chance to show their presence. A rollout requires tons of $$.

Yes, Bringing Down Cost Of 1 Gig & Below Plans. Also setting up 100 Mbps as their base plan from both providers Jio & Airtel. That would be the greatest thing. Also 2 Gig speeds for residential users 😁

Not that much excited about 5G as I was about 4G.
I hope 5G brings in unlimited wireless data in mainstream like most developed nations 5G provider are offering.
I guess 5GB Or 10GB per day data limit will be norm with higher rental plans of course.

I feel 4G plans should remain the same like 2GB/day or increase to 4 GB/Day. But 5G plans should be like 10 GB/day etc. Price should be higher than 4G so only those who need 5G can use it. Low budget recharge users get 4G & high budget users get 5G. More data on 5G plans...

You guys keep saying that it's working here & there but never share any screenshots...😂
