Mobile chipmaker Qualcomm is hopeful that 5G technology would be deployed in India at the same pace 4G networks were rolled out and noted the new-age technology offered great potential for consumers and enterprises alike.
Speaking to leading news agency, Qualcomm Incorporated President Cristiano Amon said he is extremely happy with the pace at which India transitioned from 3G to 4G. “When it happened, it happened very very fast. It’s remarkable what Reliance Jio has done and I think it clearly surprised everyone in the industry,” he noted.
Emphasising that 5G is going to have a “more profound impact on the industry”, Amon said he “would like India to be a 5G market as fast as we saw with 4G”. He added that Qualcomm is working with ecosystem players like regulators and device makers, globally including India for deployment of the new-generation 5G technology.
