\r\n \r\n\r\nLoop Mobile didn’t take part in Auction that mean they will soon sell out their mobile spectrum and customers to someone else. Its a bad news for the Loop lovers but they may enjoy even more if Loop will be picked up by a national player like Airtel. More over Tata Docomo also won zero band block so it is rumoring out in Market that they can sell over their all services to Vodafone.\r\n\r\nUninor won blocks for Assam which means now they will provide their service in Assam circle also.\r\n\r\nReliance Jio Infocomm made bid for 1800MHz only which somehow means that they have no plan to provide Voice services over the Bands they won.\r\n\r\nReliance Communications came out as low player they only won 0.6 MHz band of 1800 Mhz in Mumbai circle. No other Block came in their hand.\r\n\r\nA total cost of 61162.22 Cr will be paid by the telecom companies who won the spectrum.\r\n\r\nThough all the blocks of 900 MHz band was sold out but 20% of 1800 MHz band Blocks are still unsold, government yet to decide what to do with those Blocks. It is believed that Applications will be invited for such band Blocks and they will be sold out on Average cost of last successful bid.\r\n\r\nFactors like introduction of 4G, retention of licences and aggressive entry played a great role in price hike of Blocks. The result of price hike may be the increase in tariffs as company can earn profit mainly in two ways ie. by increasing customers or by increasing tariffs. Tariffs of Airtel and Vodafone are already on higher slot if they again hiked them it would be sad news for many of the users.\r\n\r\nIf you have any Query related to any field of Telecom sector comment it below or write us at [email protected]\r\n\r\n
