The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is likely to submit its recommendations on 5G spectrum by the end of this month or early April, TRAI chairman PD Vaghela said on Wednesday.
TRAI got to work immediately after receiving the credential in October last year, he said during an online lecture on “5G: A Next Generation Technology” hosted by the Administrative Staff College of India (ASCI).
“Because there is a lot of work to be done. A lot of technical studies are needed. In general, we take about seven to eight months to make recommendations when it comes to spectrum auction. But this time we have worked very hard and I am sure we will be able to give the recommendation before March 31st or maybe the first or second week of April at the latest. But we will try to give it before March 31,” he said.
“After that I think the government has stated that they will auction it as soon as possible,” he said. He expressed the hope that it can be implemented within four to five months after the auction and that the current 4G network can be used for the introduction of 5G. He was asked when 5G services are likely to launch in the country.
