Though these cities will get 5G services in the first phase, it does not mean that everyone living in these cities will get access to 5G services. The telcos may offer access to 5G in selected areas of these cities. 5G services may take a longer time to reach everyone even in these cities too.
Meanwhile, the 5G spectrum allocation letters have already been sent to the service providers- – Bharti Airtel, Reliance Jio, Adani Data Networks and Vodafone Idea.
