AUSPI Welcomes TRAI’s 2G Spectrum Recommendations

By May 18th, 2010 AT 12:15 PM

CDMA operators Reliance communications (Rcom), Tata Teleservices (TTSL) and MTS India (SSTL) lead Association of Unified Telecom Service Providers of India (AUSPI) welcomes Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI)’s recommendation to charge incumbents telecom operators a one time fee for holding 2G spectrum.

“TRAI’s recommendations is well balanced, progressive and transparent unlike past instances of spectrum allocations well over legal entitlement to incumbent GSM operators.” said AUSPI.

According to AUSPI “The TRAI recommendations are pro-consumer and will help bridge digital divide by linking spectrum allocation with roll-out obligations.While no Association or operator has got all issues from their wish-list accepted by TRAI, TRAI has accepted far more of the wish-list of incumbent GSM operators that AUSPI members.”

AUSPI also said that incumbent GSM operators had welcomed DoT’s Second Spectrum Committee Report. TRAI recommendations are very much similar but as these are now closer to implementation, they are being attacked by the very same operators who had earlier welcomed very similar recommendations.
