By end-2010, competition and availability could force prices down to the Rs.299 level for 1 Mbps unlimited broadband.

In India's spectrum auction, broadband wireless access hitched on to third generation (3G) telephony as a poor cousin - a seemingly dull sequel of the high-profile 3G spectrum auction last month that brought nearly $15 billion into the government's kitty.

India's media spent just a few hours reporting on the $8 bn that came from the spectrum auction bonanza version.2. It marvelled at the unknown Infotel which picked up the 22-circle pan-India licence when no one else did. Then it got terribly distracted by Mukesh Ambani's proposal to acquire Infotel and his younger sibling Anil's brotherly withdrawal from the auction.

The more important thing is that wireless broadband can finally happen now and such an access will be a game changer for India. Unlike data cards, this isn't just for mobile executives. It will drive rapid penetration of fixed-line broadband in areas outside suitable wireline reach. I expect to see this ramping up broadband in India - up from its present, abysmal one percent penetration.
