New Delhi, September 24
Telecom operators will now be able to share active infrastructure, including core networks following amendment made by DoT in the licence norms.
The move is expected to reduce capital and operational expenditure of telcos like Jio, Airtel and Vodafone Idea. The DoT has also changed commercial VSAT licence rules to enable use of satellite connectivity to provide backend connectivity for mobile networks.
“The licensee may share its own active and passive infrastructure for providing other services authorised to it under any other telecom licence issued by licensor,” the new clause said. — PTI
