damn. so Infotel is not the ONLY exclusive 4G provider i guess.

Bobby Bhai, You didn't read the full article. This 4G is different than the BWA one. There is no fixed definition of 4G. So a series of frequency comes under 4G category. 700 Mhz is one of the frequency.


This band is currently used for broadcast services and the DoT has set a target for Doordarshan and other government agencies to vacate these frequencies by the year-end so that the auctions can be held in 2012.

In response to TRAI's consultation paper on 'Auction of Spectrum', the company said that the economic value of the spectrum in 700 Mhz band is higher than 2100 Mhz allocated for 3G services and 900/800 Mhz band allocated for 2G service.

"Based on the above comparable factors given by the Authority, the reserve price for 700 Mhz spectrum may be kept around 7-8x of 3G auction price," Infotel Broadband IBSL said.




4G spectrum base price should be 8 times of 3G's: Infotel
