Indian market may not hold the key
However, industry insiders believe that for Indian IT service providers such as Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys, owning a 5G network may not be the primary motivation.
Though the Indian market is important for companies such as Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and others, Indian IT firms are more eager to acquire 5G airwaves in order to demonstrate their expertise to global clients and participate in transformational deals in the telecom sector.
Technology firms want their own spectrum so that they can develop various use cases. First, these companies will showcase their capabilities, and then, they can participate in 5G-related digital transformation contracts globally. This is critical because India doesn’t have 5G deployment yet.
