DoT may inform 10MHz spectrum release tomorrow

#1
NEW DELHI: The Department of Telecom is likely to inform the prospective bidders of the 3G spectrum about the 10 MHz of radio waves released by the defence forces in the pre-bid meeting on Monday.

A senior DoT official said if questions from the interested parties come on the availability of two slots of 3G spectrum at the pre-bid meeting, the department will inform them about it. The auction of 3G spectrum is scheduled to start on January 14, 201 0.

DoT's conference with prospective bidders will take place on Monday where it will address all of their queries related to the auction. The Defence Ministry last month released 10 Mhz of 3G spectrum prior to the auction but was irked by the telecom depart ment's non-inclusion of this fact in the information to the prospective bidders in official document.

This complicated the matter as it may also necessitate telecommunication cos to re-work their auction strategies. So, with this spectrum release, two additional slots can be auctioned in each circle, but the DoT first has to acknowledge this, a mobile op erator said.

With the release of 10 Mhz, there will now be four 3G slots for GSM players in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh (West) and Himachal Pradesh in line with all other circles. Besides, Rajasthan and all the North-East states can also accommodate two GSM-based 3G operato rs while West Bengal can now have three slots.

Earlier, DoT had said there were no radio waves available for North East states and Rajasthan. - PTI
