·        The Department of Telecommunications promptly issued a ‘Notice Inviting Applications’, detailing the specifics of the auction including the frequencies.

·        The speed with which the Government has moved  from the initial announcement in the Union Budget to the telecom regulator’s recommendations, and finally notification of the auction  has been commendable.

·        The Government has underscored that its primary motivation is to boost digital connectivity, a laudable objective given that the rapid growth of wireless telephony has perceptibly helped improve the delivery of services such as mobile banking, online education and telemedicine.

·        With 5G’s adoption for the various possible end uses that leverage machine-to-machine communication such as IoT, smart agriculture, smart homes and others that bank on reliability, including smart grids and autonomous vehicles, still in its relative infancy even in advanced economies.

·        The Cabinet’s decision to allow bids for starting Captive Non-Public Networks that would enable individual companies to run private networks within the isolated confines of the enterprise has also roiled the pitch.

·        It is hard to imagine the urgency to open up 5G for this niche application, particularly as it further undermines the economics for traditional telcos.
