Spectrum for 5G to most likely be auctioned in second half of 2019

September 24, 2018

The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) will most likely auction the spectrum for 5G services in the second half of 2019.


Further, DoT plans to provide a one-year timeframe for conducting trials with experimental spectrum before the auction happens. With regard to this, the government intends to provide telcos with experimental licenses so that they can develop test beds in order to enable the evolution of a full-fledged ecosystem for 5G services.

As far as government funded trial test beds are concerned, DoT has said that these are being set up at various IITs.

Also, Ericsson's test bed, which had being set up at IIT-Delhi in July 2018, is already functional.
