Voice&Data - - NEWS&VIEWS -

The govern­ment may of­fer the BSNL new fre­quency band sim­i­lar to the one given to the pri­vate op­er­a­tors, with the PSU of­fer­ing to sur­ren­der Broad­band Wire­less Ac­cess (BWA) spec­trum in sev­eral cir­cles. Since BSNL was al­lot­ted non-stan­dard­ized fre­quency, putting the PSU at dis­ad­van­tage vis-à-vis pri­vate op­er­a­tors; hence it has of­fered to sur­ren­der the spec­trum. The Tele­com Min­istry might re­con­sider its de­ci­sion to auc­tion one slot of BWA spec­trum avail­able in most of the cir­cles and of­fered it to BSNL, who had re­cently writ­ten a let­ter to DOT of­fer­ing to sur­ren­der its BWA spec­trum in 17 cir­cles.
