India's 5G Spectrum Auction successfully concluded on the 1st of August. Every telco has acquired spectrum based on its needs or capabilities. There is a fourth participant from a non-telco background that participated in the spectrum auction for the first time, and everyone knows it is Adani Data Networks.
We have covered spectrum acquisitions of telcos in our earlier story, and in this story, we will look into the spectrum acquisitions of Adani Data Networks.
