    The pricing recommended by TRIA has been rejected by telecom companies. The DCC choose to leave the spectrum frequency band between 27.5-28.5 gigahertz for satellite services rather than auction it.

    The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) proposed a basic tariff for this frequency band. They claim that it could be used for both mobile and satellite services.

    The regulator left it up to the government to decide whether or not to auction 27.5-28.5 GHz in its response to the DoT last week.

    The DCC also agrees to the TRAI’s request that private wifi or a 5G network will be available for captive usage. TRAI has proposed a massive auction proposal worth over 7.5 lakh crore at the base price for radiowaves allotted over a 30-year period.

    The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) suggested a 39 per cent drop in the reserve or floor price. This is for the sale of spectrum for mobile services. It includes the latest 5G offering, in order to align revenue projections with the industry’s paying capacity.
