Adani Networks reported to have received a license for full-fledge telecom services ...

According to two official sources, Adani Data Network has been granted a unified license for access services, which allows it to provide all telecom services across the country.

Following acquiring spectrum in the recent auction, Adani Group has commenced business.

According to a source, "Adani Data Networks has received the UL (AS)," according to an official source. A third official said the permit was issued on Monday.

An e-mail request to the Adani Group did not provide a reply.

In the recent 5G spectrum auction, Adani Data Networks (ADNL), a company of Adani Enterprises, acquired the right to use 400MHz of spectrum in the 26GHz millimetre wave band worth Rs. 212 crore for 20 years.

The Adani Group had said that it intends to use the airwaves for its data centers as well as the super app it is developing to assist businesses, from electricity distribution to airports, and gas retailing to ports.

"The newly-accredited 5G spectrum is expected to help create a unified digital platform that will accelerate the pace and scale of the Adani group''s core infrastructure, primary industry, and B2C business portfolio," the group said in a statement.

Bharti Airtel is the first telecom business to offer 5G services in eight cities, including Delhi, Mumbai, Varanasi, Bangalore, and other cities. The company intends to expand 5G services in several cities across the country by March 2023 and across India by March 2024.

Reliance Jio, on the other hand, has started the beta trials of 5G services in the national capital along with three other cities, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Varanasi, which have users receiving download speeds of over 1Gbps. However, the services are available on the invitation-only basis. Eventually, people will begin receiving 5G signals in the entire city in a phased manner.
