5G Trials Will Happen in India, But Without ZTE and Huawei
India and China are not in good terms at the moment. Things between both countries are heated up because of the border tensions. ZTE and Huawei are two Chinese companies which have been helping telcos in providing telecom services in…
It's almost halfway through August, and there's no sign that the auctions for either 4G or 5G is around the corner other than the fact that Huawei and ZTE won't be allowed to participate.
Seriously, WHEN ARE THE F AUCTIONS GOING TO BE HELD?!?!?!?!?
When telcos have sufficient money for it
Hope Govt. Will reduce the price for 4G & 5G spectrums for the sake of everyone. And it's good time for indian manufacturers too who make telecom equipments. They should do something concrete. It's good time to rewamp their strategy.
Likely to happen next year only mate!
Price reduction of 5g spectrum is in mind of govt. They are looking into it.
4g auction will take place in Oct Nov. And 5g only next yr
Some time back they said September, and now you're saying October to November. Looks like the 4G auctions get delayed till March next year, and 5G one to the end of 2021. Smh.
This is highly possible. But 5G its going to be a tough for Indian Telecom Operators
Yeah...so? Nobody knew that COVID19 was coming. But dont worry , i assure you that 4G auctions will be happening in last three months of this year. For you; i will try to buy Reliance Jio, and you will be the CEO. :p
What my sources say is its going to happen during 2021 June
They do have the money but time is what matters.
Damn man this government is a disappointment. The last 4g spectrum was in 2016. 4 years gone and Jio has been struggling to give coverage due to the low spectrum and the spectrum sharing with Rcom is almost expiring. Jio has 10MHz spectrum on band 5 in Mumbai while just a paltry 5MHz in Goa. Same for band 3. Airtel and VIL both have more than 15MHz in band 3. Band 40 isn't accessible everywhere, and that's why bands 3 and 5 are important. But there's no point if they're gonna be just 5MHz. Even 5MHz with 4x4 MIMO is pointless. Jio should at least have 15 mhz in both band 3 and 5 along with 4x4 MIMO and 256QAM.
So now you know why I'm waiting for the auctions to to take place since 2017. Now that 5G has started, it's high time the government gets all the necessary spectrum in the different bands in sub 6GHz and mmWave. I don't want to experience real 5G in 2029.
@kiran, we know how badly u are waiting for spectrum aution for jio.
but recently Goa govt clear way to install more towers. I hope your area also get covered adequetely within few months.
Anyway Aution are already in pipeline in 2020, just pandamic has delayed game.
JIO may procure 15Mhz in 800Mhz, band 5 in maharashtra. Because soon jios subsciber will be at par with VIL.
5G is different game, but again it will work on 700, 2100,3500 and 28Ghz , so let jio and interested Indian telco or gloabal player can start trial in 2020 itself.
Yeah, I just hope it happens soon. Jio better get 15MHz in band 5 here. It's a pain to use Jio in many remote areas of Goa where band 40 doesn't reach.
