TRAI to decide on 5G spectrum sale after ongoing consultation process

November 14, 2017

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is likely to arrive at a decision regarding the sale of airwaves in the 3300-3600 MHz band after the outcome of ongoing consultation process.

In late August 2017, the regulator initiated an industry-wide consultation process for frequencies in the 3200-3400 MHz, primarily used to offer 5G services together with radio waves in the 700MHz, 800MHz, 900MHz, 1800MHz and 2100MHz bands.

The consultation process is underway and the decision to hold an auction for 5G spectrum is dependent on the outcome of the consultation process. Telecom operators, however, have said that there is no need to hold auction for 5G spectrum and have asked for the deference of the same. Further, operators have also said that the timing for the consultation process is not appropriate.
