While the Vo5G service is now present in the Middle East, thanks to Zain Kuwait, it’s unclear when this service will be able to phones in India. But there seems to be still some time for that to happen. But there’s good news for those waiting only for 5G services. The 5G rollout in India is said to happen by August of this year, which is just a month away.
