Recent telecom spectrum auctions in India attracted a record number of bids totalling Rs 1.5 lakh crore, with Mukesh Ambani’s Jio securing over half of all airwaves sold with a bid of Rs 88,078 crore.

Bharti Airtel, owned by telecom mogul Sunil Bharti Mittal, submitted a winning bid of Rs 43,084 crore, while Vodafone Idea Ltd. paid Rs 18,799 crore to purchase spectrum.

The company led by Gautam Adani, whose participation in the auction was seen by some as adding to the tension in their conflict with Mukesh Ambani, paid Rs 212 crore for 400 MHz. The 26 GHz band, which is ideal for establishing a private network for end-to-end communication, was purchased by Adani Group.
