5G rollout should be India’s national priority: Reliance Chairman Mukesh Ambani

Reliance Chairman and Managing Director, Mukesh Ambani, said that 5G should be India's national priority. He said that India needs to migrate from 2G to 4G to 5G at the earliest.

Ambani said that keeping millions of Indians at the bottom of the socio- economic pyramid is not good for the digital revolution.

The theme of the conference is connected for the next Decade.

The rapid expansion of the mobile subscriber base in India has been driven by affordability. He said that India should move towards greater digital inclusion.

The fibre connection should be completed on a mission mode.

He advocated for the use of the USO fund for other purposes other than services, as well as for the adoption of "futuristic technologies and supportive policy tools".

The USO fund can be used to subsidise devices.

India needs to make sure that it is affordable for services, devices and applications.
