TRAI gives a jolt to Indian iPhone fans

I’ve been bringing my readers constant updates about Airtel and the Apple iPhone 3G. Why not let me deliver those updates to you via email? It’s free, and zero spam/advertising. You’ve got nothing to lose.

Apple iPhone 3G in India by Airtel and VodafoneIndians anxiously waiting for the release of the Apple iPhone have been given a jolt by the Telecom regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) in the form of increased base price of 3G auctions.

The revised base price for the 3G services has been set to Rs. 2200 crore, up from the previously set Rs.1400 crore for a Pan-India license.

To put it in simple terms, companies have to bid for their share of the 3G spectrum in India. TRAI sets the base price above which the bids fall. By increasing this base price, TRAI is causing the companies to invest heavily. What this means for us? Increased tariff for 3G. And we need 3G if we want to experience the complete features of the iPhone.
