India’s 3G roadmap

Posted by g.e. on September 28, 2006

reported in FT:
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) expects the launch of sophisticated third-generation, or so-called 3G services, such as internet access on mobile phones by June next year.

Trai recommended auctioning chunks of spectrum to licensed telecom operators and recommended establishing a National Frequency Management Board to oversee planning for spectrum availability.

TRAI on Thursday allocated chunks of spectrum at 450 MHz, 800 MHz and 2.1 GHz for 3G services. It has specified 200 MHz of spectrum for broadband wireless access.

India last month overtook China as the world’s fastest-growing mobile phone market in terms of monthly net additions. It added 5.9m new subscribers last month, bringing total numbers to more than 123m. By comparison, China added 5.19m subscribers in August.
