The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has warned the broadcasters saying that it will take action if necessary in the interest of consumers and the sector. The regulator on Friday said that some of the broadcasters are “exploiting” the freedom they have got for a-la-carte pricing of the TV channels. According to a PTI report, TRAI said that some leading broadcasters are taking advantage and of the new rules... Read More
As per the data published by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), Vodafone Idea provided the best average upload speed to the users in September 2021. The third-largest telecom operator has been consistent with providing excellent download and upload speeds to the users. The primary reason behind this could be the lower network load that it enjoys because of the lesser number of customers as compared to Reliance Jio... Read More
5G is just around the corner, and the telecom operators are worried about the way the 5G spectrum will be auctioned. The use cases of 5G technology will be way more than 4G, and the airwaves/spectrum will be required by not just the terrestrial network service providers but also by the satcom service providers and the enterprises. The enterprises or non-telecom firms will require airwaves for 5G to allow machine-to-machine... Read More
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) and the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) have been working together to optimise the spectrum bands that will be used for both 5G and satellite broadband services. Spectrum is a finite resource, and thus harmony between the satcom players and the telcos must be ensured. The airwaves in the ‘C’ and ‘Ka’ bands will be very important for delivering high-speed internet for both satellites... Read More
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) can’t straight away jump to 5G. There’s a solid reason behind it. That reason is the absence of 4G networks. Since the telco doesn’t have live 4G networks around the country, it will have no other option than considering 5G Standalone (SA) network core architecture. To many, this will sound very simple! Many would just say that if BSNL can leverage 5G SA to get... Read More
Bharti Airtel might not have as many 4G subscribers as Jio, but it still has more active subscribers than its competitor. Airtel focuses more on quality while Jio mostly on numbers. According to the monthly performance report shared by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), Airtel’s 97.74% users of the total subscriber base were active as compared to its rival Jio’s 78.18% users of the total subscriber base. Even... Read More
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has said that going for floor pricing is not the correct way to help the industry right now. This is correct, though, because it is not like the financial health of all the telecom operators is bad. Just to save one private company, floor pricing shouldn’t be introduced. Yes, it will help the operators in earning more, but it will also completely destroy... Read More
Satellite communication or satcom is an emerging technology that has been gaining traction in recent years. It is believed to come to help as a frontline service in regions where the fiber optic connectivity might not be feasible or in times of natural disasters. TRAI believes that satcom services might keep essential services running at these situations. V Raghunandan, TRAI secretary, stated that satcom could be an excellent backup at... Read More
The Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) is backing the recommendations of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) on spectrum and RoW. The telecom regulator has proposed a new national portal for RoW. Further, TRAI has recommended exemption of RoW charges for the telcos for the next five years (FY23 to FY28) with an aim to expedite the laying of common ducts. On top of this, TRAI recommends that... Read More
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has rolled out a major tariff order for the telcos. According to the regulator’s order, the telcos can’t offer differential tariffs via their commercial partners. The sector regulator has said that the telcos can only offer tariffs that have been reported to the authorities. This is because offering anything else through the commercial partners is discriminatory and “contravene” the current rules set around... Read More
The satellite communication system is one of the latest tech revolutions which is slated to change the way we use network systems currently. While the race of 4G and 5G along with wired broadband is limited to terrestrial networks, the satellite broadband technology is something that will easily defeat the roadblocks faced by the currently used networks. While companies like Starlink and HughesNet are racing to launch satellites and networks... Read More
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recently released its recommendations on the “Licensing Framework” for satellite-based connectivity for low-bit rate applications. The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) had earlier asked the sector regulator to come out with a list of recommendations on the licensing framework so that the provisioning of satellite-based connectivity for low-bit rate applications can be enabled. The DoT wanted a licensing framework for both captive and commercial... Read More
