Sukhu launches 5G service in Shimla


Shimla, Feb 14 (UNI) – CM Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu | Himachal Prades Chief Minister Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu launched the Fifth Generation (5G) telecom services in the state on Tuesday.


Sukhu said the upgradation of the services would transform telecommunication in the state, as every third person is utilising internet services.


Expansion of 5G services would further strengthen the digital infrastructure all over state, ushering in a plethora of opportunities and enriched experiences for every individual, especially students, businessmen and professionals, said the Chief Minister.


“It has been a complete transformation in the telecom sector, as we began from Landline during the time of late Sukh Ram ji, the then Union telecom Minister, thereafter to 2 G, and so on,” said the Chief Minister.


The 5G technology has an important role to play in the flagship projects of the state government like tourism, healthcare, horticulture, agriculture and education, he said.


Sukhu iterated that a complete revolution has been witnessed in the telecom arena which will help the health sector immensely.


The Government is mulling improving the health services in the state and introduce world-class technology in health institutions and all six medical colleges. The latest 5G connectivity will prove a boon in research and reference for doctors.


Similarly, the government is committed to bringing radical changes in the education sector as well and latest courses like Robotics, Block Chain Technology, Cyber Security, Cloud Computing, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will be introduced in technical educational institutions from the next academic session, so that the youth can get better employment opportunities in these sectors.


For this purpose, the state government has sanctioned an amount of Rs.20 crore, he added.


The Chief Minister asked the company to strengthen the 5G infrastructure at the district headquarters level so that people do not face inconvenience in their day-to-day life.


5 G Service would now be available to customers in Shimla, Hamirpur, Bilaspur and Nadaun, in first phase and the rest of the cities will be connected through 5G services by the end of this year.
