Below i m giving the last paragraph of the TDSAT rulling which is given today (28th Nov)21. For the reasons stated above, we find no merit in this appeal and find no reason to interfere with the impugned notification. Hence, we dismiss this appeal and direct that the notification in question be brought into effect immediately by TRAI so that the benefit of the notification to the consumer is not delayed further.

These ceiling tariffs fixed result in a reduction of 29 per cent, 64 per cent and 59 per cent in tariffs for E-1, DS-3 and STM-1 capacities respectively (as compared to the existing listed price prevalent in the market for India USA Atlantic route). The authority had fixed the ceiling tariffs for three most commonly used capacities -- E-1 (Speed of 2 MBPS), DS-3 (45 MBPS) and STM-1 (155 MBPS).
