With 117 crore telecom users and 825 million broadband subscribers, India is currently the second-largest telecom market in the world, according to Dr. P. D. Vaghela, Chairperson of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI).

Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) organised a workshop on "Vision for Socio-Economic Transformation in NE States - Role of 5G Technologies and Digital Infrastructure" in Guwahati to help people better understand and address the problems and obstacles associated with bringing transformational technology to all of the Northeastern Region's states.

According to Dr. Vaghela, 5G technology will help India realise its aim of empowering its citizens digitally and enhancing their quality of life. According to him, the adoption of 5G technology would result in major network performance gains, as well as a likely transformation of society and industry that would propel the nation on a never-before-seen growth trajectory. He noted that 5G would have a significant impact on a number of industries as well as the general economy.

He emphasised how the stakeholders can work together to speed up the development of the infrastructure needed for 5G, taking into account the problems and difficulties in the NE states. According to him, the government's top priority is to ensure that every segment of society has connectivity at all costs by giving everyone, particularly those who are underserved, access to the internet and other digital technologies.
