According to a report by PTI, the vision document released by Department of Telecom states that while 5G technology promises a speed of 40-1,100 Mbps with the potential to hit maximum speed of 10000 Mbps, 6G will offer ultra-low latency with speeds up to 1 terabit per second --which is 1,000 times more than the top speed of 5G.

Meanwhile, speaking on 5G PM Modi said India is working with many countries to change the work culture of the whole world with the power of 5G. "Very soon, India is going to set up 100 new 5G labs. This will go a long way in realizing the opportunities, business models and employment potential associated with 5G. These 100 new labs will help in developing 5G applications according to India's unique needs. Be it 5G smart classrooms, farming, intelligent transport systems or healthcare applications, India is working fast in every direction. India's 5G standards are part of the global 5G systems," he stated.

"Before 4G, India was only a user of telecom technology, but now India is moving fast to become a big exporter of telecom technology," PM Modi added.
