Spectrum Auction May Increase Call Charges: Analysts

Comments Off on Spectrum Auction May Increase Call Charges: Analysts 11

Auction of telecom spectrum due March 4 may burn a hole in the pockets of the operators and may increase call and data charges, experts have opined.

“This will be a very big and interesting auction. Operators whose licences are expiring will be bidding hard to secure their position. Though Bharti Airtel, Vodafone and Idea Cellular managed to secure some airwaves in the 1,800 MHz (megahertz) and in last year’s auction in some of the circles where their licences are expiring, they might have to bid hard to secure their position in circles where they don’t have sufficient spectrum in 1,800 MHz band,” Rishi Tejpal, principal research analyst, Gartner, told IANS.
