The Telecom Department, it said, must give instructions for allocation of spectrum for trials to telecom service providers and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) partners free of cost for the duration of the trial, the Cellular Operators' Association of India (COAI) said in the recent letter.
COAI noted that in line with the 5G trials being conducted and planned across the globe, the report released by the 5G high Level forum in August 2018 had also emphasised the need for technology demonstration and major trials pertaining to 5G in India.
