As per the reports DoT might allow spectrum sharing which means non 3G operators can offer 3G services via spectrum sharing all though Trio like Airtel Vodafone India and Idea has started offering 3G in non 3G circles after TDSAT lifted the ban on 3G ICRA roaming in April 2014.

This comes at the time when the technical committee pointed out that since spectrum and licences have become technology agnostic, there is no point in banning a particular technology when it comes to sharing spectrum reports The Hindu. DoT had earlier banned sharing of 3G spectrum on the grounds that it would jeopardise future auctions as telecom players could enter into sharing arrangements instead of buying it.

Now its a wait a watch for operators and subscribers if telecom commission approves the final policy though if approved its a win win thing for customers and we can see some healthy competition among 3G operators and we believe there are chances operators might do a marginal hike in data tariff.

As a customers what do you think do let us know via comments.
