Airtel, Vodafone Idea and Reliance Jio unlikely to bid for 5G spectrum

Aug 28, 2019 15:34 IST

The Department of Telecommunications has begun the search for an  agency to conduct the e-auction of 5G spectrum. However it seems the country’s three leading telecom operators — Airtel, Vodafone Idea, and Reliance Jio — are unlikely to bid for 5G spectrum, citing high cost and limited availability of the airwaves. Last year, the sale of 20 MHz blocks of 5G spectrum had been fixed at a price of Rs 492 crore per unit.
