New Delhi, Nov 26 (IANS) The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has initiated the process to firm up reserve prices for the 700, 800, 900, 1800, 2100, 2300 and 2500 MHz spectrum bands which provide 2G, 3G and 4G telecom services, an official statement said here on Thursday.

The telecom watchdog said to avoid further delay in floating the consultation paper, “the Authority has decided to issue the consultation paper based on the available information”.

The consultation paper floated by TRAI touched on key issues like quantum of spectrum to be auctioned, spectrum cap, spectrum block size, roll-out obligations, and methods to be used for valuation and estimation of reserve price.

The sector regulator has floated a consultation paper seeking comments and counter comments by December 21 and 28 respectively.
