TRAI is seeking views of international agencies and experts on spectrum auction

May 07, 2018

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is consulting various international agencies and experts, and expects to finalise its recommendation on spectrum auction soon. A review meeting on the same was held last week.

The government is planning to hold the largest-ever spectrum auction of 3,000 MHz radiowaves in the next spectrum sale. It has sought recommendations from the TRAI on the applicable reserve price and related issues for auction of spectrum in the frequency bands 700 MHz, 800 MHz, 900 MHz, 1,800 MHz and 2,100 MHz, 2,300 MHz, 2,500 MHz, 3,300-3,400 MHz and 3,400-3,600 MHz.

The TRAI will also give its opinion on timing of the proposed spectrum auction. In the previous auction held in 2016, the government had put a total of 2,354.55 MHz of mobile airwaves for sale in the bands of 700 MHz, 800 MHz, 900 MHz, 1,800 MHz, 2,100 MHz and 2,300 MHz. However, nearly 60 per cent of the total remained unsold in that auction.
