3G Connectivity in India: 5 players to be allowed

The long awaited decision to conduct a global auction for the Indian 3G spectrum is finally out with the Communications Minister Andimuthu Raja saying that the licence auction would be held by December and the process would be “fully transparent.” AirTel and Vodafone are expected to be the big players during this auction, which might also see international players like AT&T. Five operators will initially be allowed for each circle. State-run BSNL and MTNL will get one allocation each out of the 22 telecommunications circles in the country. However, the New Delhi and Mumbai circles will only see two to three operators being allowed, Raja said. “The number of operators can go up to 10 in the circles… when more spectrum becomes available,” Raja said, in a move boosting competition. What 3G essentially will essentially mean for the 280 million mobile users in India is better data speeds, enhanced voice quality, video conferencing, video streaming, among other services that need high-speed data connectivity. It would also decongest the networks allowing for lesser call-drops. What it means for the Apple iPhone users? You can now make complete usage of those apps that are bundled with the iPhone 3G. Imagine streaming videos off YouTube without lag on your iPhones. Sounds good? Let the wait begin. [Thanks Abhishek]

    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.
