With the commissioning of the newest unit in Gangotri, India's 5G network has reached two lakh mobile sites.

Pushkar Singh Dhami, the chief minister of Uttarakhand, and Ashwini Vaishnaw, the union minister for communications and information technology, officially opened the 5G facility at Gangotri.

Speaking at the ceremony, Vaishnaw remarked, "Today, a 5G station is essentially operational every minute. The entire world is in awe. We take great delight in the fact that Chardham now has 200,000 locations installed.

He remarked that the Prime Minister had stated that India would lead the world in 5G and follow in 6G.

The days of signing technology transfers are over, according to Vaishnaw. Meaning that India is now a technology exporter, emphasizing the fact that the era of legally binding technology transfers is long gone.

The dream that we saw of high-speed connectivity in the hilly area of Uttarakhand has been fulfilled today," Dhami said.

Within five months of the Prime Minister's October 1 service launch, the first one lakh 5G sites were operational.

In three months, the next 100,000 sites have been launched.

According to him, the launch of high-speed service will aid in disaster relief and management, surveillance, and economic growth.

The ministers also dedicated to the country the optical fiber link of Uttarakhand's Chardham, which includes Badrinath, Kedarnath, Yamnotri, and Gangotri.

"Today, devotees of Chardham have received a present in the form of a 5G site. Now, our border area will also get wrapped up with mobile connectivity. The dream that we saw of high-speed connectivity in the hilly area of Uttarakhand has been fulfilled today," Dhami said.
