TRAI: India should auction mobile TV licences
January 4, 2008
India’s telecoms regulator has recommended auctioning licences for broadcasting mobile television services. Foreign investment in a provider will be allowed up to 74 per cent, but no more than 20 percent must be owned by broadcasting companies, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India said in its draft recommendations.
Operators that win licences will automatically be allotted at least 8 megahertz of spectrum, and will have to share infrastructure with other providers
