3G Licensing in India

Bharatbook added a new report on “3G Licensing in India” which gives the 3G policy and current market scenario of 3G Licensing in India.

3G Licensing in India report ( ) assesses that the Indian telecom market is seeing a tremendous change as on one hand operators are anticipating an all out coming price war and on the other hand they are fighting the battle for 3G spectrum. So it is competition all the way from increasing the subscriber base and also in getting UMTS spectrum.

Implementation of 3G will require lot of investment in CAPEX and OPEX for the operators. There is also debate going on that this spectrum will be used for better voice services or for launching new data services. 3G will allow specific advantage to the Indian mobile operators to de-congest the voice networks and thus has a unique edge over more data driven technology WiMAX.

The last decade has seen a significant increase in number of subscribers and voice traffic and operators have driven the growth based on subscriber numbers. The next decade in India will change the telecom market dynamics as there is now demand and need for bandwidth consuming applications such as gaming, music download and video streaming for which operators need to add more capacity not only in network but also over the air.
