BWA providers to be allowed to offer voice

19 Feb 2013

Indian wireless broadband providers will be allowed to offer voice services if they pay an additional INR16.58 billion (USD304.63 million) Reuters cites Rajeev Chandrashekhar, a senior telecoms ministry official as saying. The move will allow holders of broadband wireless access (BWA) licences to compete in the crowded voice market. The decision has been green-lit by the Telecom Commission and is awaiting approval from the telecommunications minister.
