Bharti for status quo on spectrum

Bharti Airtel, on Wednesday, asked the Centre not to change existing spectrum allocation criteria. It also warned against imposing one-time charge on the mobile operators holding spectrum over 6.2 Mhz as suggested by sectoral regulator Trai, saying no fee can be slapped on previous allocations as suggested by Trai.

In a letter to Telecom Minister A Raja, bharti said “We therefore feel no one-time spectrum charge can be levied for any previous allocations against the terms and conditions of licence or allocations. If at all any such charge, it has to be very reasonable for the operators who have invested hugely to build rural networks”.
