Reliance Jio seeks spectrum for 5G trials, plans to sell tech overseas

new Delhi. Reliance Jio has demanded some special frequency spectrum from DoT for testing state-of-the-art 5G technology. The company's US-based wholly-owned subsidiary Redisys has also started selling some 5G solutions to foreign companies. According to sources, Reliance Jio has demanded 100 MHz frequency in the 3.5 GHz band with 800 MHz frequency in 26 GHz (GHz) and 24 GHz bands on July 17 for testing in urban centers like Delhi and Mumbai.

According to official sources, Jio said that high frequencies have been kept for use in developed countries like the US, South Korea, Japan, Canada and the UK. The company wants that testing in these bands should start in the country to make India self-sufficient in this matter. The government is ready for suggestions and testing. Several trials are already underway.

The company has sought spectrum frequencies in the 26.5–29.5 GHz and 24.25–27.5 GHz bands. The auction of this high frequency band is likely to be held next year. The company has also said that it wants to test the 5G technology before selling it to other countries. At the 43rd annual general meeting of Reliance Industries, Mukesh Ambani said that Jio has developed a 5G solution.
