Videocon currently holds liberalised spectrum in 7 circles and plans to launch narrow band FD-LTE on its 1800MHz spectrum that it also uses for voice services. Videocon did not participate in the recently concluded auction and plans on selling minority stake up to 49% to an interested buyer and is also willing to give administrative control to the buyer.
It remains to be seen as to what strategy the operators adopt after the merger and acquisition and spectrum sharing and trading guidelines are released by DOT. The telecom sector is in desperate need of consolidation.
