Telcos stare at long wait for defence spectrum 13.11.2014 DNA: Popular News
After intense pressure from the telecom operators, the Department of Telecom (DoT) has got into race mode to expedite the process of freeing up spectrum held by the defence but it is racing against time to fulfill all conditions for it. It has begun by drafting a cabinet note for creation of defence band and defence interest zone (DIZ), which are part of milestones to be achieved for release of 5 MHz in the 1920-1980 MHz (3G) band by the defence, but it could well get stuck on its various other commitments. DIZ, as defined in the draft note, is an area up to 50 km (excluding cities) from international borders, line of control/line of actual control, areas of specific interest and areas of counter insurgency and counter terrorism operations. Promulgation of defence band and DIZ is only one of the criteria for vacation of spectrum from the defence. The DoT also has to place orders for equipment, operationise the AF network and waive off spectrum charges for the defence forces. The Ministry of Defence (MoD) ...

DoT shoots down TRAI's proposal for more spectrum for telcos 7.11.2014 DNA: Popular News
Hopes of telecom firms looking to expand their network by bidding for spectrum in the 2,100 megaHertz (MHz) band, freed up from defence, and 900 MHz band from state-owned BSNL, were dashed with the inter-ministerial telecom panel Telecom Commission (TC) asking the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) to review its recommendations. The panel has asked the regulator to come out with fresh proposals as vacating of airwaves from defence and BSNL would be time consuming and could delay the spectrum auction to be held in February next year. If the TRAI were to act on this and alter its suggestion, it would mean lesser quantum of spectrum for auction, which in turn could inflate the base price suggested by it. A senior official of the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) said as it was difficult to immediately free up spectrum from the sources recommended by the TRAI, as the quantum to be auctioned will change which in turn would affect its pricing. "We have asked TRAI to come out with fresh ...
