TRAI’s suggestions to improve broadband service to be reviewed

By July 14th, 2015 AT 3:18 PM

Telecom Commission will discuss the suggestions laid by TRAI for improving broadband services on 14 July 2015. TRAI has recommended a number of good moves, which may lead to call rate reduction for landlines.

The regulator has suggested incorporating Virtual Network Operator (VNO) in the country under new licenses. VNO may be allowed to provide service in the country as retailer of the operators, providing one bill to customers for a host of services. VNOs may reduce the marketing and operation expenses of the telecom companies.


TRAI has also suggested exempting fixed landline broadband service from license fee for at least five years. The telecom operators will be allowed to provide bundle offers, combining desktops, laptops, tablets etc with broadband schemes. The revenues from this will also be exempted from license fee for another three years.

There are also measures suggested to improve the service, such as providing more spectrums and to take a decision on 700MHz band – the best spectrum frequency for wireless telecom services within three months. Concerns on delayed spectrum trading norms are also expressed.

The recommendations, if accepted, will bring down call costs and lead to improve of services on a large scale.
