Which 5G bands are available in India?

As of present now, the 5G auction in India is still going on. It will end on August 14, 2022. However, several key aspects about 5G bands are already available to the general public.

These 5G frequency bands are up for sale, according to the Department of Telecommunications (DoT): 600 MHz, 700 MHz, 800 MHz, 900 MHz, 1,800 MHz, 2,100 MHz, 2,300 MHz, 3,300 MHz, 3,500 MHz, and 26 GHz.

The two 5G frequency bands that telecom powerhouses are most interested in are the low-band 700MHz (n28) and the mid-band 3500MHz (n78). A preferred 5G frequency range for delivering sub-6GHz 5G services to the general public is the n78 (3300-3800MHz) spectrum.

It belongs to the mid-band group and has a theoretical maximum speed of 1Gbps. Yes, it’s slower than mmWave 5G, it is also more affordable, has a wider range, and is available everywhere.
