to achieve greater speed.

The 5G internet network – which was tested at the MG Road metro station in Bengaluru – gave a download speed of 1.4 Gbps and an upload speed of 65 Mbps. The network would be 50 times faster than conventional 4G internet and the 5G network will extend over a radius of 200 m in the station.

Namma Metro spokesperson tweeted: “BMRCL has become the first metro in India to test 5G network under a pilot project by TRAI. The 5G network radiated within a radius of 200m, deployed by Reliance Jio at MG Rd station. The test achieved download speeds of 1.45 Gbps and upload of 65 Mbps, making it 50 times faster than 4G.

In 2013, Namma Metro started providing internet to its customers. In its first movement, basic internet was provided in a metro train traveling between Byappanahalli metro station and MG Road metro station.

The latest decision should encourage commuters to use the transit system more often as the BMRCL has expanded its services across the city. Areas congested with heavy traffic like KR Puram and Tin Factory will also soon have metro stations as the metro construction works are proceeding at a brisk pace.
