Nokia Networks, Ericsson & Huawei Expect Indian Telcos To Make Robust Network Investment

Telecom gear makers Nokia Networks, Ericsson and Huawei expect strong years ahead, confident that top telcos will make robust investments into rolling out new networks and upgrading existing ones, despite fears that operators’ spending capacity will be limited by the hefty amounts spent on recent spectrum auctions.

Analysts fear that the thousands of crores that top carriers Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India, Idea Cellular and Reliance Communications have committed to buy airwaves in the sale ended March 25 will restrict their ability to make additional investments over the next couple of years, which could in turn slow down the rollout of 3G and 4G networks in India. The four operators, plus Reliance Jio, were the main buyers of 2G, 3G and 4G airwaves for a record price of nearly Rs 1.10 lakh crore in the auction. Original post at ET Telecom
