Help TRAI to float consultation paper on new services soon
Advertisement
#1
NEW DELHI: The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India will soon float a consultation paper on value added services (VAS) that include caller tunes, ringback tones and MMS, which are offered by various application providers.

“We will bring out a consultation paper on VAS in the next few days. We will see how to bring VAS into the active mainstream,” the TRAI Chairman, Mr J.S. Sarma, told reporters on the sidelines of the IAMAI India Digital Media Summit event on Tuesday.

Although Mr Sarma did not elaborate on the areas that would be covered in the consultations, they are likely to include the contentious issue of revenue share between telcos and application provider.

VAS operators constantly complain that as they provide features, content and a wide range of services like ringer tunes to mobile operators for their customers in the absence of a proper regulatory structure, they don’t get adequate financial returns fro m telcos.

As for pushing broadband growth in the country, Mr Sarma said TRAI will come up shortly with its recommendations on the National Broadband Plan (NBP).

“As per the recommendations, all the gram panchayats will be covered by 2012 and by 2013, all the villages with more than 500 people will be covered (by broadband connectivity),” he said.

“I think we would aim at more than 100 million subscribers by 2014 and this is other than wireless mobile broadband, which itself would expected to be more than 50 million,” he added.
