Vodafone-Idea Might Launch 5G Services Soon In India

While Jio and Airtel are still giving each other a tough fight to roll out 5G to each part of the country, Vi still hasn’t rolled it out for commercial use. Kumar Mangalam Birla, Chairperson of Aditya Birla Group has now said that Vi is expected to start 5G services soon in India.

This development came after the Indian Government approved conversions of the Rs 16,133 crore interest dues by the company into equity after promoters shared their plans to make new investments. The promoters have been promised that the company will launch 5G services in the country. This is good news for consumers as the equity conversions will allow promoters to infuse funds, which means the telco will survive and there will be no duopoly in the sector.
