India is set to miss the deadline for the launch of commercial 3G services yet again. The ministry of defence has informed the Department of Telecom that the armed services would require additional time, up to 390 days, to vacate the 45 MHz spectrum which it currently occupies. This means that
3G launch in India will be delayed to 1Q 2008.

Of the 45 MHz, 25 MHz will be given to a maximum of five operators (through a bidding process) for the launch of 3G services while the remaining would be used for 2G services.

Government sources said the primary reason for the defence ministry seeking more time was due to BSNL’s and MTNL’s failure to complete the Rs 980 crore alternative optic fibre backbone for the armed forces as per schedule.
