Adani To Launch Cellular Services In India?

New Delhi: Adani Data Network has been given a unified licence for telecom services, allowing it to offer all telecom services in the nation, according to two government sources.

Adani Group entered the telecom industry, after it participated in the recently concluded 5G spectrum auction and, purchased 400MHz of spectrum in the 26GHz millimetre wave band for 212 crores over a 20-year period.

“Adani Data Networks has been granted UL (AS),” an official source said. Another official said that the permit was granted on Monday.

Notably, the group had previously denied any intention to get into the telecom industry.

However, no official communication in this regard has been made by the group as yet.

The Adani Group had previously stated that it intended to use the airwaves for both its data centres and the mega app it is developing to help industries ranging from gas retail to ports and energy delivery to airports.

“The newly-acquired 5G spectrum is expected to help create a unified digital platform that will accelerate the pace and scale of the Adani group’s digitisation of its core infrastructure, primary industry and B2C business portfolio,” the Adani group had said in a statement previously.
