In the field of technology, 5G service is the main one which is going to be big in the next few years. 5G has been rolled out in a few countries of the world at this time. The Ministry of Telecom, Industry Telecom Service Providers, TRAI, COAI are all engaged to roll out 5G service in India. All these are working together for the development of mobile ecosystem in India. We spoke to COAI Director General (DG) Rajan S Mathews about 5G spectrum to roll out service.
According to media reports, according to COAI director general Rajan S. Mathews, the process of auctioning 5G spectrum in the country is now in its final stages. For example, the 5G High-Level Committee has advised the Ministry to take necessary steps regarding the availability of spectrum. The committee also said that effective allocation should be based on the lowest current price. To implement the 5G service, a large amount of ecosystem would need to be changed, including spectrum usage, network infrastructure and devices, which led to telecom Companies can incur heavy expenditure. The new band will be brought for 5G, the reserve price that TRAI has kept for it is still quite high. For example, for the 3300-3600Mhz band of 5G, the price of the unpaired spectrum has been proposed at Rs 4.92 billion per MHz (Mhz), while the price for some bands of 5G in India has been kept quite low, yet it is priced at other Countries are much higher than the spectrum band.
For your information, tell us that in a country like India, the harmonization of the spectrum is also unavoidable, due to which the availability of 5G based service in India will be increased, not only the cost of telecom equipment will also be reduced in a big way. The government aims to generate $ 2.9 billion from sales of 75MHz out of the 700MHz band of 5G spectrum, 200MHz in the 3.6-3.8GHz band and 1GHz out of the 26.5-27.5GHz band. This will create a desire for telecom companies to use 5G broadband technology which is difficult in fibre optics. At this time 5G service has been introduced in many countries of the world. The 5G spectrum band in India can be auctioned in late 2019 or early 2020. By then, the industry will get to know more about the price of 5G equipment and this helps service providers determine revenue in return for the service.
