Comments Off on TRAI May Suggest Spectrum Usage Fee on Internet Service Providers 13

India’s telecom regulator could recommend levying a fee on internet service providers for using airwaves, as is done in case of mobile phone operators, a move that will make broadband more expensive for consumers as it will push up costs for companies such as Reliance Communications and Bharti Airtel.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) could unveil a roadmap early next year for levying a spectrum usage charge or SUC on internet service providers, a senior Trai official told ET.

Trai has sought inputs from the department of telecom (DoT) on current spectrum holdings of internet service providers or ISPs, specific frequency bands held by them and their annual licence fee payouts. Original post at ET Telecom
