Tikona-Airtel deal will cause a loss of Rs 217 crore: Mukesh Ambani 17.5.2017 DNA: Top News
Billionaire Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Jio has alleged that rival telecom firm Airtel's proposed acquisition of Tikona will cause a Rs 217 crore loss to exchequer if the spectrum that the internet service provider holds is used to make voice calls. Jio asked the Department of Telecommunication (DoT) to not approve the acquisition unless Airtel pays for converting the BWA or broadband spectrum from ISP license to Unified license that will allow use of airwaves for any purpose - be it data transmission or making voice calls. In a three-page letter, it alternatively suggested that Jio should be refunded Rs 1,658 crore fee it had paid in 2013 for migrating its broadband wireless access spectrum (BWA) to unified license. This, it said, was essential to give all players a level playing field. When contacted, an Airtel spokesperson said, "Bharti Airtel has always been and will continue to be fully compliant with all regulatory guidelines. We strongly deny these allegations, which is yet another mischievous ...

Trai to roll out new app to rate call quality, make 'do not disturb' service better 5.5.2017 DNA: India
Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) said it will soon roll out an app for measuring call quality, enabling the subscribers to rate the service quality after completion of a call. Trai also plans to strengthen the 'Do Not Disturb' registry programme aimed at deterring pesky calls by telemarketers. "We are coming out with two measures, one of them about enabling consumers to measure call quality after a call is over. They can say how they found the call, and give it a rating," Trai chairman RS Sharma said at an event to commemorate completion of 20 years of the regulator. The second initiative will bolster the existing 'Do Not Disturb' system. At present, there is a framework for DND registry, that allows telecom subscribers to block unwanted promotional calls from telemarkers. Reaching out to such subscribers attracts a heavy fine for telemarketers. "We have already done a lot of work in this," Sharma said. On the issue of penalty recommended for incumbent telcos, he said Trai will send its ...

Maha's public Wi-Fi has 'immoral' users 5.5.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Around 10 per cent of users on the Maharshtra government's public Wi-Fi network are using the system to access "immoral" sites, including pornographic ones, and objectionable URLs. This, senior state government officials admit, has led to a "cat-and-mouse game" with them blocking this content once it was detected. A senior official from the state Information Technology (IT) Department said that around 8-10 per cent of users on the network accessed these sites, which included those with pornographic and malicious content. "We are working at the back end to block these sites and pass the details on to the Department of Telecom, Ministry of Communication and IT (DoT)," he added. The official however, said that they had not detected any instances of terror-related sites being accessed using the 'Aaple Sarkar Mumbai Wi-Fi' network. He added that they had blocked access to most such sites with 38 "immoral and doubtful" URLs being banned in addition to the sites which have been disabled by the DoT. "This ...
