Its been years since I first wrote about 3G coming to India. When I start working in 2004 as a SE, it was a then Nortel’s 3G product I worked for and from that time this 3G story floats in India.
Now it looks like we have something solid on DoT Papers. Hope nothings goes to dust again.
Bids will be invited in March and Auctions to be held in April.
3 to 4 players to be allowed in all circles. (Consumer can be happy as the data usage price might come down due to competition)
Commercial services are expected to start in September/October once the spectrum is released.
A big thanks to the defense ministry for agreeing to vacate the spectrum this fast.
Just got a new mobile (SE J1o5) which is 3G enabled and still thinking to go for a BSNL 3G connection or wait for private players 😉
To be continued…
Staying Alive !!!
