The much awaited 5G service will soon be launched in Odisha. Union Minister for Communications, Electronics and Information Technology Ashwini Vaishnaw on Thursday informed this on the sidelines of a programme in Puri. 

While it has widely been discussed that the 5G will have radiation impact, the minister turned it down saying there would be hardly any radiation in 5G. 

“Odisha will get 5G service in the very first phase. The amount of radiation it will give forth is 10 times less than the radiation norms set by the World Health Organisation (WHO). People should not worry about it,” the Minister said. 

Notably, once launched, users will get service at a speed of 10 times more than that of 4G and 30 times more than that of 3G. 

According to experts, the speed may reach 100 times. Along with it, the users will no longer face download issue as 5G would enhance the download speed. 

For example, the file which took 56 hours for download in 2G network, two hours in 3G network and 40 minutes in 4G network will take only 35 seconds in 5G network. From this it can easily be imagined how fast our digital life is going to be.
