February 5, 2016

1.The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) on Wednesday recommended auction of 700 MHz spectrum for the first time in the country at a pan-India reserve price of about Rs.11,500 crore per MHz. The 700 MHz spectrum is considered to be the most suitable for offering high speed broadband services. However, the operators had asked the sale to be held back till the device ecosystem is put in place. The cost of delivering mobile services in 700 MHz band is also approximately 70 per cent cheaper than 2100 MHz band (used for 3G services).

2.The regulator has recommended that entire available spectrum in the 700 MHz band and 2100 MHz band be put on sale in the upcoming auction.
