The race to launch 5G in India is underway – Jio & Airtel in intense battle

As the curtains fell on the 7-day auction of 5G spectrum earlier this week, the focus has now shifted to the public launch of 5G services by the three telcos that were in the fray (Adani group, the fourth participant in the auctions, will provide 5G private network solutions only).

The auctions netted the government a record Rs 1,50,173 crore — this is the biggest sale of radio waves in India. Altogether, of the total 72,098 MHz of spectrum available at auction with a validity period of 20 years, 51,236 MHz were sold to bidders.
