DoT guidelines after clarifications from Trai
If not 3G (third generation) telecom service during the current UPA regime, the government has ensured that at least mobile virtual network operation (MVNO) comes into India soon.
Six months after the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) recommended introduction of MVNO service, the government has accepted it.
The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) will now issue the MVNO guidelines —- but only after it receives clarifications from Trai on certain issues.
It is believed that applications from many global MVNOs are with the DoT.
Across the world, there are around 360 planned or operational MVNOs.
