Communications Ministry India to Allow Mobile Phone Companies to Share Spectrum
Indian Telecom Commission has made it clear that mobile phone companies can share spectrum however they have made this facility as limited to 2G airwaves alone. Now Second generation (2G) spectrum is largely used for offering vanilla voice services for which development process can be accessed easily. This is obviously a good news for SEO company services in India as the business criteria will be developed in a faster way. SEO company services can have better platform for working in a improved manner with new technology.
This new strategy however, phases out a conceptual process as telcos cannot share 3G spectrums. Incumbents who have taken the government to court, after the telecom department asked these companies to terminate their 3G roaming deals, had hoped that policy alterations permitting the interdependency of airwaves, would put an end to this dispute.
The minutes of the latest TC meeting declared recently, "Spectrum can be shared only between two spectrum holders.... In other words, a non-licensee or licensee who has not been assigned spectrum as yet cannot be party to spectrum trading. Two companies can share airwaves only if their combined holdings do not exceed the limits prescribed in the M&A norms. The TC had recently approved sector regulator Trai's recommendation that during mergers, the combined entity be allowed to have up to 25% of the total airwaves in the region. Spectrum sharing deals will also have to be renewed every five years. “
The minutes of the TC meet added, “Telcos sharing spectrum must pay the government the commercial value of the airwaves it is using. This means, an operator that has 4.4 MHz of airwaves, and is sharing radio frequencies with another telco that has the same amount, must pay 'current prices' for additional 4.4 units of spectrum it is using. In order that payment of current price does not act a disincentive, licensees may be permitted to pay the current price applicable on the date of permission, on an annual basis, instead of for five years at a time, and this payment will cease if the sharing agreement is annulled midway."
This minute has phased out a confidence and hope for operators and even for companies too and we have to wait and see the further development of this process how far it can produce expectations up to the mark. However, SEO company services can come for new attention in their marketing deals.
