Airtel wants uniform guidelines for India’s 5G handset ecosystem

Bharti Airtel, India’s second-largest telecom operator, has urged the country’s Department of Telecommunications to bring uniform guidelines to develop the 5G smartphone ecosystem. The Sunil Mittal-led telco, in its letter to the department, recommended that any new 5G handset sold in India must support all existing bands in India for 5G, including the mm-wave bands. The letter, reviewed by the Financial Express newspaper, highlighted the need for all 5G smartphones to support dynamic spectrum sharing along with 2G, 4G and 5G support on both SIM slots. The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) had previously clarified that telecom operators could use any telecom technology using any band to offer voice and data services.
