Mobile Virtual Network Operators may soon Get Green Signal in India

MVNO or Mobile Virtual Network Operators can be a reality in India in near future as Department of Telecom asks TRAI to submit their views on virtual operators as these are also a part of upcoming spectrum sharing policy.

DoT wants to allow entry to virtual network operators, a new category of players who will take bulk infrastructure capacity from existing telecom companies and then resell it reports The Hindu Businessline.

Entry of MVNO can dramatically change India’s mobile landscape – better utilization of network assets, better penetration of mobile broadband in rural & urban areas, more affordable tariffs, specifically focused operators, more competition in market and consumers to enjoy more benefits.

MVNO policy in Indiawas not in a proper shape and Tata Tele made two deals with Virgin Mobile and Future Group, but those services were actually under brand sharing agreements. Talk24, the venture between Future Group and Tata Tele is mere like a loyality program of Future Group to cater its larger retail customer base.

The entry of MVNOs in India will be especially useful for low-cost roaming mobile services.
