The telco also suggested that higher floor prices will lead to 5G networks being unviable, and therefore it's getting delayed. "Moreover, spectrum should be made continuously available to the industry between the two auctions at the price determined during the last auction," Reliance Jio Infocomm board member Mahendra Nahata was quoted by PTI.

This is not the first time that Reliance Jio has raised its voice against the 5G spectrum pricing. Earlier, Economic Times reported that Jio wants to conduct trail first and develop use cases, due to high prices. "5G spectrum should be auctioned in 2021. Nobody will buy 5G now because there is no use case, the price is exorbitantly high," Jio executive was quoted as saying. For the unaware, TRAI has recommended Rs. 492 crore per MHz in the 3.3-3.6GHz bands. The regulator has also mandated that telcos buy in blocks of 20Ghz.
