5G services will take education system to the next level: PM Modi



Prime Minister Narendra Modi has stated that the recently launched 5G telecom services will take the education system to the next level in the country. He was speaking at the launch of Gujarat government’s Mission Schools of Excellence initiative at Adalaj town in Gandhinagar district of Gujarat.

“The 5G services will go beyond smart facilities, smart classrooms and well as smart teachings,” Modi said. He also advocated the use of local languages to make sure those uncomfortable with English are not left behind.

PM Modi has started a two-day visit to poll-bound Gujarat on Wednesday during which he emphasised that the above initiative will upgrade school infrastructure in the state with 50,000 new classrooms and more than one lakh classrooms in 20,000 government schools. This will further make a huge difference to the lives of children and their education.

“This occasion is going to serve as a milestone for a developed India, and for a developed Gujarat’’, said the Prime Minister.  

“Some people say we have seen 2G, 3G, 4G and now 5G, and so what’s the big difference? If I were to explain from a layman’s point of view the benefits of 5G technology, I will say if 4G is a bicycle, then 5G is an airplane,” PM Modi said, adding that young students can now experience the power of virtual reality and the Internet of Things at school.
