Hyderabad’s commercial network in the 1800 MHz frequency band uses non-standalone (NSA) called National Security Agency network technology. However, ET Telecom was the first to announce the development, quoting sources saying that similar tests will soon begin in Kolkata. In January, Airtel was the first telecom company to demonstrate 5G real-time services successfully, and it keeps its achievement note.

DoT has allocated frequencies for the Airtel network in four Indian telecom circles. The area of the circles is including Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore, and Delhi. However, the report pointed out that Airtel has obtained a 5G test spectrum in the 3500 MHz, 28 GHz, and 700 MHz frequency bands.

Reliance Jio and Vodafone Idea (Vi) are allocated spectrum in the 700 MHz, 3.5 GHz, and 26 GHz frequency bands. The applicant telecommunication service providers have Airtel, Reliance Jio, Vodafone Idea, and MTNL.
