Comments Off on High Cost, Limited Sale Of Airwaves To Hit Telcos: GSMA 6

GSMA, the global association of GSM telecom companies, has warned that India’s upcoming auctions where a limited amount of 3G spectrum at very high base price could be put up for sale, would have dire consequences for telcos in the country and India’s digital inclusion plan.

Tom Phillips, chief regulatory officer at GSMA, said the authority was concerned with the actions of the Telecom Commission, the highest decision-making body in the communications ministry, which has decided to set 3,705 crore as the reserve price for an airwave unit in the 2100 MHz (3G) band that is 36% higher than that suggested by India’s telecom regulator.
