The Minister for Communications, Electronics and IT Ashwini Vaishnaw on Saturday said that the launch of 5G is a golden letter day in the history of the Telecom Sector in India. 

The minister said that telecom is the gateway of Digital India and a strong telecom sector is needed in this period of transition. 

Vaishnaw said that with the launch of 5G today, there will be a great development in the sectors of education, health, agriculture, logistics and the digital economy and the face of communications will change. 

Efforts are on to reach last mile connectivity in the optical fibre network with an innovative model, he added. 

He also appreciated the Prime Minister for giving BSNL a market stabilizing force status and sectioning the Rs 1,64,000 crore package which is a historic event for the Indian telecom service provider. 

"Modi Ji gave a challenge of developing indigenous technology for 4G and 5G and India is marching ahead in the technology development and now the world is looking at Indian telecom technology," he added.
