Reliance Jio Announces Acquisition of Spectrum in the 800MHz and 1800MHz Bands in the Auction Conducted by Department of Telecommunications, Government of India
Mar 26 15
Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd. announced that it has successfully acquired the right to use spectrum in 13 key circles across India in the recently concluded spectrum auction conducted by DoT, Government of India. RJIL plans to provide seamless 4G services using LTE in 800MHz, 1800MHz and 2300MHz bands through an integrated ecosystem. With this investment, in addition to the pan-India 2300MHz spectrum, RJIL has spectrum in either 800MHz or 1800MHz or both in 20 out of total 22 circles in the country. This combined spectrum footprint across frequency bands provides significant network capacity and deep coverage. 800MHz is a popular choice for sub-GHz LTE implementation globally by leading operators across North America, South Korea, Australia and other markets to enhance coverage and service experience. In addition, in the Indian context, LTE implementation in this band has greater potential given spectrum availability in the future. Through this acquisition, RJIL's total equivalent spectrum footprint has increased from 597.6MHz to 751.1MHz (including uplink and downlink), strengthening its position as the large holder of liberalized spectrum. The payment to be made for the right to use this technology agnostic spectrum for a period of 20 years is INR 100,775.3 million.
