Delhi Metro 5G Service: Get ready to experience the benefits of lightning-fast 5G mobile networks during your Delhi Metro journeys. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has begun preparations to install advanced 5G network equipment on the corridor’s pillars.
The initial phase will cover the Samaypur Badli-Huda City Center route of the Yellow Line Metro. This route spans 49 kilometers and comprises a total of 37 stations, serving a staggering 3 to 4 lakh passengers on a daily basis. To ensure a smooth rollout, DMRC has divided the installation process into three phases.
The first phase will focus on completing the Samaypur Badli to GTB Nagar section, followed by Saket to Arjangarh in the second phase, and finally, Arjangarh to HUDA City Center in the third phase. Across this route, a total of 795 pillars will be equipped with 5G mobile network technology by Delhi Metro.
Work will be finish in three phases
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has initiated the tender process for installing 5G network equipment on their pillars. Rather than DMRC setting up the network themselves, telecom companies will be responsible for the installation and will pay rent to DMRC accordingly. The exact rental fee is yet to be determined and will be decided once the telecom companies submit their applications.
Tender has been released by Delhi Metro
DMRC has released the tender, inviting interested parties to participate in the process. The expansion of Delhi Metro’s Airport Line from New Delhi to Dwarka Sector 21, extending up to Dwarka Sector 25, is already equipped with 5G Network C facility. This underground corridor is fully prepared for the installation. The introduction of 5G equipment will not only benefit the passengers but also the residents in the vicinity of the stations and the corridor. Additionally, it will contribute to increased revenue for the Metro.
It is worth mentioning that various developments are underway in Delhi this year, including the G-20 conference, which has prompted several improvements such as high-speed 5G network, well-maintained roads, double-decker buses, and improved footpaths connecting metro stations to residential areas. The 5G network has already been enabled at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI), and now the focus has shifted towards implementing the 5G network service in Delhi Metro. Over 5,000 towers are being set up across Delhi to support the 5G network infrastructure.
