TRAI has recommended, among other proposals, a reserve price of Rs.3,622 crore for 1 MHz pan-India spectrum, which is around 10 times higher than the price at which 2G licences were allocated in 2008. Telephone tariffs will go up 100 %, hitting customers hard if the government accepts the sector regulator’s proposals on spectrum auction.
Recently, Vodafone company has increased its call rates by 20%.
