The spectrum surge
Meanwhile, Adani Group company stocks have surged significantly in the last one month despite weak market sentiment because of the 5G spectrum auction. Adani has acquired the right to use 400MHz of spectrum worth ₹212 crore for 20 years in the 5G spectrum auction. It will use the spectrum to create a digital infrastructure portfolio for its group companies.


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

Acquiring 400MHz of spectrum is the group’s first step in integrating its digital infrastructure portfolio, which includes data centres, terrestrial fibre and submarine cables, industrial cloud, AI innovation labs, cybersecurity and super apps, as per a press release.
