EGoM decides to allocate 700 MHz spectrum for offering 4G
An Empowered Group of Ministers (EGoM) settled to assign 700 Mhz spectrum for offering 4G telecom services. This especial band is believed to be very effective and could bring in the government revenues more than it got via auctioning of 3G spectrum in 2011. Spectrum in 700 Mhz band calls for likely half the investment to roll out services as compared to what was needed for rolling out services in wireless broadband spectrum auctioned in 2010.
