Who bought which spectrum?
In July, the government put up for auction 72,098 MHz of spectrum, of which 51,236 MHz, or 71%, sold for Rs 1.5 lakh crore. Adani Data Network, Vodafone Idea, Bharti Airtel, and Reliance Jio Infocomm have each submitted bids totaling Rs 212 crore, Rs 18,799 crore, Rs 43,048 crore, and Rs 88,078 crore for the auction.
The country’s 5G speed will be 10 times quicker than the 4G speed. Users will receive internet speeds ranging from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps after the launch of the 5G service. A file that takes 10 minutes to download at the present internet speed will download in only a few seconds over 5G.
