You will now be able to take advantage of 5G mobile network in the next few days while traveling in Delhi Metro. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has started preparations to install 5G network equipment on the pillars of the corridor.
According to DMRC, it will be started from Samaypur Badli-Huda City Center route of Yellow Line Metro. There are a total of 37 stations on the 49 kilometer corridor from HUDA City Center to Samaypur Badli. 3 to 4 lakh passengers travel daily on this route. DMRC has divided the work of setting up 5G mobile network on pillars into three phases.
According to DMRC, the Samaypur Badli-HUDA City Center route will be completed in the first phase from Samaypur Badli to GTB Nagar, in the second phase from Saket to Arjangarh and in the third phase from Arjangarh to HUDA City Center. Delhi Metro will install 5G mobile network equipment on 795 pillars of this route.
The work will be completed in three phases
DMRC has invited tenders for deployment of 5G network equipment. Telecom company will pay rent to DMRC instead of setting up 5G network. This rent will be charged per pillar. How much the rent will be, it has not been decided yet. The fare will be decided only after the application of the telecom companies.
Delhi Metro has issued the tender.
Delhi Metro’s Airport Line, which runs from New Delhi to Dwarka Sector 21, is being extended up to Dwarka Sector 25. 5G Network C facility is already available in the expansion area. This underground corridor is ready. Metro management has said that the installation of 5G equipment will not only benefit the passengers but also the people living around the station and corridor. Along with this, the revenue of Metro will also increase.
Significantly, due to the G-20 conference in Delhi this year, many works are going to be done like high speed 5G network, beautiful roads, double decker buses, preparing better footpaths for commuting from metro stations to colonies. 5G network has already been enabled at IGI Airport. In such a situation, work has started on 5G network service in Delhi Metro as well. More than 5000 towers are being set up in Delhi for 5G network.
