RCom now capable of providing 4G pan-India.

New Delhi: Reliance Communications gained capability to provide 4G services across the country on the back of spectrum won by it in the recently concluded spectrum auction.

The telecom operator said, "RCom becomes India's first and only operator with nationwide footprint of contiguous 800/850 MHz spectrum. RCom operations now future-proofed across all circles for most advanced LTE technology at most optimal cost." It made bids worth Rs 4,299 crore and is required to make an upfront payment of Rs 1,106 crore.

It won 800 MHz spectrum in 11 service areas but could not defend its 900 MHz spectrum holding in five out of seven circles expiring in 2015-16. It retained its 900 MHz holding in Himachal Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh besides acquiring 800 MHz spectrum afresh in Assam, North-East, Odisha and West Bengal where it lost 900 MHz band spectrum holding.
