BSNL, COAI appeals admitted in RCOM dual technology case

7 Jul 2009

India’s Supreme Court has admitted appeals from both state-owned operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) and the Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) against a ruling allowing mobile operator Reliance Communications (RCOM) to use dual technology to offer mobile voice services, the Hindu Business Line reports. The move comes after the Telecoms Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) in March 2009 upheld an earlier government ruling allowing the cellco to use both GSM and CDMA technology to offer mobile service nationwide.
