The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) will reportedly finalise its decision on priority plans of Vodafone Idea Limited (VIL) and Airtel within two weeks of getting detailed responses on its queries from the two telcos.

According to industry sources, while TRAI had serious concerns on multiple issues pertaining to the priority plans, it had granted additional time up to August 10, 2020 to the two telcos to respond to its fresh round of questioning, as the players themselves had sought more time to reply.

The sector regulator is probing whether assuring minimum, faster or average data speeds is technically feasible or not and in case it is, why should telecom operators offering priority/platinum plans not be able to quantify the same, and clear the air around treatment that will be meted out non-premium customers as well.
