2G spectrum price soon

The telecom watchdog had proposed the process for linking 3G spectrum price with 2G spectrum in order to give level playing field to all operators. Most of the GSM operators like Airtel and Vodafone have strongly opposed the regulator’s proposal while it was welcomed by CDMA lobby.

“When we gave our recommendations to the government in May 2010 we had said we are studying the issue (linking 2G price with 3G price). We have not asked for any extension. We expect to give recommendations in two-three week,” TRAI chairman J S Sharma said.
He said TRAI would release all promised spectrum as committed in 3G spectrum auctioning period by September and also finalise its recommendations about new broadband policy by end of August or else latest by September.
