With just a week away from closing applications for BWA Airwaves Auction, Qualcomm Executives from San Diego are busy wooing Indian Telecom Operators [Reliance Communications and Tata Indicom] to throw their weight behind Qualcomm which is keen on pushing Wireless Broadband using the LTE / 4G technology in India.
India and 4G ? No, we are not kidding, the TRAI has made it clear that BWA Waves / Spectrum is technology Neutral. Until now, Intel with its mighty and lobbying approach made sure that operators go with WiMax based infrastructure to provide Wireless Broadband Services. With the sudden entry of Qualcomm, the battle for broadband has heated up.
We are not sure if the Spectrum of 2.3GHz earmarked for BWA by DoT will be suitable or not for LTE or not.
