Trai to Finalise Recommendations on Spectrum and Data Pricing by Month End

Telecom regulator Trai will firm up its view on spectrum price for the next round of auction and differential pricing of data, which is central to the net neutrality issue, by the end of this month.

 

"We will finalise recommendations on spectrum price by the end of this month... even on differential price (of data), whatever we have to say will be done by the end of the month," Trai Chairman R S Sharma told reporters Wednesday on the sidelines of Convergence India 2016 in New Delhi.

 

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) has put out a consultation paper on a reference made by the government to suggest the base or floor price for all available airwaves for mobile services.

 

The government had pegged revenue from communication services for the current fiscal at Rs. 42,865 crore, which include upfront realisation from spectrum sale and licence fee.
