TRAI’s Formula for Spectrum + CAPEX

Government on Monday informed the Delhi High Court it will implement telecom regulator TRAI’s recommendations for spectrum allocation as an interim measure.

As predicted earlier, the Telcos are in a rapid CAPEX mode. RCom hasp laced an order of $600 million to Huawei for GSM equipment. Vodafone Group PLC has committed $6 billion investment in India over the next 3 years. It is dreaming to have 100 mn subscribers by the end of 2010.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) has suggested abolition of the existing practice of levying Access Deficit Charges (ADC) on private operators. The regulator, in a consultation paper, has suggested that ADC should be abolished by April 1, which, many say, could make telecom services more affordable.
