26GHz band will reduce the 5G deployment costs in India

26GHz band will reduce the 5G deployment costs in India

The telecom department of India is expected to shortly approach the sector regulators to make way for auctioning the 26 GHz band. The coveted spectrum will reduce the costs for 5G deployment and this will allow the telecos to provide affordable broadband services. DoT is on the verge of seeking a recommendation for prices from the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai). One of the senior government officials had stated that they will be taking references from Trai for the 26GHz band and hold an auction next year. The 26 GHz is the most productive approach to deliver moderate 5G services. The telecos in India is encouraging the government to take reference from countries like Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, and the US to use the ecosystem of 5G that is created around 26GHz.The airwave from these can also be used for industrial applications. The price discovery mechanism and approval process may consume a lot of time so the spectrum might not be auctioned anytime soon. 3.3-3.6GHz is the spectrum earmarked by the DoT for 5G services.

Specialists are speculating that the Trai and government have adequate time to set a starting price for the 26GHz range in light of the fact that as of late the International Telecom Union (ITU) have finalized the standards for 5G deployment.
