After the 5G spectrum auction went well, Reliance Jio made plans to launch 5G in India. The company may start offering services sooner than expected since it was the highest bidder in India’s recent 5G auction. Akash Ambani, the new chairman of Reliance Jio, said that the company would “celebrate ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ with a PAN-India 5G rollout” after spending over Rs 80,000 crore to buy almost half of all the airwaves for sale. If that is any indication, Jio’s 5G services should be available in India by August 15. Get latest news Hitsbuddy.

The government says that India will start to use 5G in October.

According to Union Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnav, the government will try to give the spectrum to the winning bidders by August 10, and 5G services should start rolling out in the country by October.

So, if Jio can launch 5G in India in such a short time, it will be the first time 5G networks have ever been used in India. Akash Ambani said about the spectrum purchase, “The company is fully ready for 5G rollout in the shortest span because of its nationwide fibre presence, all-IP network with no legacy infrastructure, an in-house 5G stack, and strong global partnerships across the technology ecosystem.”

5G spectrum auction

Reliance, The Department of Telecommunications (DoT), held an auction for 5G rollout spectrum. Jio was the highest bidder, followed by its competitors Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea. Jio has bought spectrum in the 700MHz, 800MHz, 1800MHz, 3300MHz, and 26GHz bands for the next 20 years for Rs 88,078 crore. The company says it has bought enough spectrum to roll out 5G services all over the country. It also bought 700MHz airwaves that none of its competitors had. This gives it an advantage over the competition regarding setting up 5G services. Jio’s 5G services should be available in India by August 15.
