Emphasising on the importance, Ambani said, "5G can give high-quality healthcare to rural and distant places on a budget by converting current hospitals into smart hospitals with no extra money. This would make the services of the greatest physicians available digitally wherever in India." He further said that by increasing digitalisation and intelligent data management of agriculture, services, commerce, industry, informal sector, transportation, and energy infrastructure, 5G may bridge the divide between urban and rural India.
